Shinzo Abe, who is a member of a prominent political family, is the first Japanese prime minister born after World War II. He studied at Seikei University in Tokyo before attending the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He entered the political world in 1982 and took office as Japan’s seventh prime minister in December 2012.

Following are 15 quotes from Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Let’s read on.

“To serve as prime minister while being too mindful of the approval rating is like serving as a prime minister on a roller coaster. What is important, I believe, is that I really act on promises that I make and leave results. Leave a track record and show that to the Japanese public, who will, at the end of the day, I hope, appreciate it.”

“Our country has become an affluent country. Recalling defeat 60 years ago, I paid homage and respect to the people who sacrificed their lives for this country.”

“I have to express sympathy from the bottom of my heart to those people who were taken as wartime comfort women. As a human being, I would like to express my sympathies, and also as prime minister of Japan I need to apologize to them.”

“There’s no change to our view that mild deflation lingers, though we are seeing some signs of improvement.”

“As an individual and politician I have visited the shrine. I want to continue to maintain the feelings that I have had until now.”

“I have experienced failure as a politician and for that very reason, I am ready to give everything for Japan.”

“We did well considering the winds were against us. It’s still possible to run a stable government.”

“The 20th century was a century in which human rights were infringed upon in numerous parts of the world, and Japan also bears responsibility in that regard. I believe that we have to look at our own history with humility and think about our responsibility.”

“We are not in a situation yet where we can change the view that mild deflation persists.”

“It is important to explain fully to the local areas with sincerity. We will also think, of course, about the development promotion of the communities.”

“Efforts to ease regulations and reform the nation’s tax system have helped put this self-sustaining recovery on track, … The numbers prove our policies have not been wrong.”

“I have not been told where to go yet. But no matter what the position is, I’m determined to accomplish Japan’s reform and create a Japan we can be proud of.”

“We aim to achieve general progress in relations between North Korea and Japan.”

“We anticipate the Japanese economy will continue its mild recovery. I am extremely delighted the reforms have produced definite results.”

“But I think there is a widespread opinion that the support system for athletes should be more firmly established.”

Americans have been shedding their blood over in Iraq and Afghanistan for nearly ten years. Yet, while we spend billions of dollars to protect them, we get nothing in return. A country like Iraq that, according to the United States Energy Information Administration, has over 112 billion barrel of oil and 100 trillion cubic feet of natural gas that is just sitting there.

Afghanistan, where oil exploration has been at a minimum, from one drilling site, it is estimated around 2 billion barrels. Yet the United States are still forcing us to buy gas from Saudi Arabia at their outrageous prices. America Wake Up! This does not make any sense! Why do we continue to give our money and blood to two countries that is loaded with oil and they just sit on it why we suffer. I ask you, who is the fool here. If you do not know then let me tell you, we are!

What is wrong with this country, we are always giving to other countries and never get back anything in return, and then we wonder why we are broke! Wake Up, it is time for the American people to wake up and put a change to the old saying that it is better to give than to receive, when we are doing all the giving and not receiving anything in return!

Wake Up America, how many times are we going to allow these oil companies to control us? How long are we going to allow these big rich outrageous profit-making companies enslave us because they know we need gas? Oil should be considered a national security in this country cause no one of us can do without it.

We use it in our cars, to heat our home and much more. We cannot expect for Congress to do anything about it because we all know that they got their hands deeper in the pockets of the oil lobbyist than the depth of the oil wells themselves. The only way that we can keep prices stable and keep our economy stable is for our government to have a National Oil Company. A government controlled oil company that will allow for us to insure that the price of oil is competitive and sold at a fair market price.

Isn’t it funny how when the price of oil goes up, it all goes up at the same time no matter if it Shell, Exxon, Chevron, or a no-brand name station. It is a Monopoly that needs to be broken up. The only way that this can be done is for the United States to have a National Oil Company. Especially now with the economy being down due to corruption in the housing market and ponzi schemes on wall street. Now, they are trying to make us pay over $ 3.00 for gas, wake up America!
