Campaign Promise
    I promise to eliminate poverty
    raise the peasant to rich peasant
    so that he may suffer with us
    the burden our happiness
    and the pain of our understanding
    God willing, we shall have the hill
    without the valley and the river
    will become an ocean and contrast
    will be a thing of the past-
