First, I will give you a random quote that I like:

"Wir sind wehrlos aber nicht ehrlos." - Otto Wels

Now for the real thing:

"We have a great objective - the light on the hill - which we aim to reach by working the betterment of mankind not only here but anywhere we may give a helping hand." - Ben Chifley

"I represent the Democratic wing of the Democratic party"

or perhaps

"Above and beyond the question of how to grow the economy there is a legitimate concern about how to grow the quality of our lives."

Some people have so confused government and society as to think the two are the same, but they are different and have different origins.

The line is a direct quote and was made roughly 200 years ago. (Though Lewis has informed me that the "is" should be "ist" anyway.. but I'm lazy.)

One of the oldest tricks is to tell a big lie, and keep telling it.  You seem to use that as your trademark!

Are you incapable of understanding the concept that person who illegally enter the country should be deported irrespective of their nationality, or do you believe that all illegal entrants are Mexicans?

It was a joke. Lay off.

"I like big butts and I can not lie; you other brothers can't deny that when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thing in your face, you get sprung, wanna pull out your tough.  'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed deep in the jeans she's wearing.  I'm hooked and I can't stop staring."
