Win $2500 From Frederick!!!*

Our friend Frederick is having a contest and we encourage all of you to participate. Mainly because Frederick is offering major cash prizes. Here's the gist:

In George Orwell's 1984, the three fundamental tenets emblazoned on Oceania's Ministry of Truth were:

War is Peace.
Freedom is Slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.

As thousands have noted, these principles guide the Bush administration. I've been looking for the best statements of these principles by Bush or other high-ranking members of his administration. Bush actually said the first one:

[W]hen we talk about war, we're really talking about peace.

George W. Bush, June 18, 2002

Frederick goes on to say:

So I'm throwing down the gauntlet. Can anyone come up with a statement from someone in the Bush administration more or less equivalent to (1) "Freedom is Slavery" and (2) "Ignorance is Strength"?

If he likes your answers, Frederick will award you with a cash prize (see his blog for details). So step right up and take your best shot.

* For the sake of brevity and sensationalism, we took the liberty of deleting the decimal point from our title.
