    Liberia is poised to teach the World how democracy actually works in a land of abundent resources.

    The first large economy to learn the lesson gets to lead Momma's Little Bastards to the stars.

    This journey started when Humanity gave up the garden and walked out of Africa 125,000 years ago... it seems fitting that Africa gets to lead the way once again.

    With people like Leymah Gbowee I see a chance for modernity to take a strong root. Can she mend the political rivalries? :eusa_pray:
