Lyndon Johnson: The RIchest Nation on Earth Can Afford to Win War on Poverty

This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America. ... It will not be a short or easy struggle, no single weapon or strategy will suffice, but we shall not rest until that war is won. The richest nation on earth can afford to win it. We cannot afford to lose it.” - Lyndon B. Johnson (State of the Union Address,  January 8, 1964)
