John F. Kennedy
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage

Harry S. Truman

Peter Hart
“It’s not just tougher out there. It’s become a situation where the contest is how much you can destroy the system, rather than how much you can make it work. It makes no difference if you have a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after your name. There’s no sense that this is about democracy, and after the election you have to work together, and knit the country together. The people in the game now just think to the first Tuesday in November, and not a day beyond it.”
Peter Hart

Andy Ngo
“Indeed, if the riots of 2020 prove anything, it’s that a sizable portion of Democratic politicians, intellectuals, academics, and journalists find riots and looting justifiable if committed in the name of “racial justice.”
Andy Ngo, Unmasked: Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy

“Be fearless. Be tenacious. Go after what you want. Be a leader. Take control. Don't like how things are managed? Change the status quo. Be a disruptor. Galvanize, inspire, lead, get results. Stand resolute in the face of critics, detractors, naysayers. Their no is your yes. Make a difference. Change the narrative. Be a monumental success and a paradigm for forward, sometimes unorthodox, always creative thinking. This is what makes you a trailblazer, a standard bearer and history maker!! Oh, unless you are a powerful, black woman (or simply a WOMAN)with a voice that moves the needle. Then, you are a troublemaker, angry, stupid, menopausal, looking for attention? Women don't owe anyone an apology or explanation for being everything those part of an unevolved faction of society believes is only reserved for men. Work with us and be great, or get out of our way so we can continue what we started a lifetime ago. Proud of you Stacey Abrams and of all women who refuse to be relegated to a status of mediocrity. "Still, I rise!”
Liz Faublas, Million Dollar Pen, Ink.

“The Democratic Party saves its ire for the Progressives while the Right projects Progressives onto the entire Democratic Party as the Socialist lunatic fringe.”

“Democrats versus Republicans is a huge scam designed to make you angry towards other Americans, specifically, your family, friends, and co-workers.”
James Thomas Kesterson Jr

“As a United States senator, I am not proud of the way in which the Senate has been made a publicity platform for irresponsible sensationalism. I am not proud of the reckless abandon in which unproved charges have been hurled from this side of the aisle. I am not proud of the obviously staged, undignified countercharges which have been attempted in retaliation from the other side of the aisle.

I do not like the way the Senate has been made a rendezvous for vilification, for selfish political gain at the sacrifice of individual reputations and national unity….

As an American, I am shocked at the way Republicans and Democrats alike are playing directly into the Communist design of "confuse, divide, and conquer." As an American, I do not want a Democratic administration "whitewash" or "coverup" any more than I want a Republican smear or witch hunt.

As an American, I condemn a Republican Fascist just as much as I condemn a Democrat Communist. I condemn a Democrat Fascist just as much as I condemn a Republican Communist. They are equally dangerous to you and me and to our country. As an American, I want to see our nation recapture the strength and unity it once had when we fought the enemy instead of ourselves.”
Margaret Chase Smith

“It is high time that we stopped thinking politically as Republicans and Democrats about elections and started thinking patriotically as Americans about national security based on individual freedom. It is high time that we all stopped being tools and victims of totalitarian techniques-techniques that, if continued here unchecked, will surely end what we have come to cherish as the American way of life.”
Margaret Chase Smith

Candace Owens
“I believe that the democrats see in black America is an undereducated community of people who are over invested in culture. Their methodology then, is to maintain control of the culture as a means to regulate the black vote.”
Candace Owens, Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation

Abhijit Naskar
“I am not left or right, I am a human. And if someone sounds more aligned with my ideas, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are left, it just means they have a more practical, community-centric and self-correcting grasp of humanity than those who are self-absorbed, self-righteous and self-serving.”
Abhijit Naskar, When Veins Ignite: Either Integration or Degradation

“Our flint-hearted politicians fundamentally have not only crossed the Rubicon in treks of their power struggles but also pigeonhole the national issues.”
Qamar Rafiq

Laura Chouette
“The thing about freedom is
that it defines its own borders.”
Laura Chouette

Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar, Generation Corazon: Nationalism is Terrorism

“Its not get it from the 1% that is the correct $$ Grubbing answer to all budget solutions . . . its the 11% answer . . . . . If you took 111% from the Top 11% . . . you can only pay for 11% of everything the Democrats want to do . . . where do you think the rest is coming from . . . U !”
