“This 21st Century U.S. government’s achievements are virtually non-existent while its failures are monumental. That’s why I believe that historians of the future will conclude that it is the worst in American history.”
“When the people of America use their power to see that this government operates in this manner then this country will be on the path leading to true greatness.”
“Government of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich must soon perish from the earth—or the climate perishes first.”
