This is the full transcript of the acceptance speech by newly appointed President Barack Hussein Obama. Most remarkable quote, goose-bumps when I heard it: "we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake". (Emphasis added).
