“This notion that the Pentagon is a humanitarian rescue organization that goes around the world saving people is a fiction. And how many more times are we going to fall for this?”

[…]

“Now, is not the time to say “Make America Great Again,” now is the time to build a new America! I think we need a government of action that will guarantee Americans the right to education and health care that’s what I think. I think we need a government of action that will nationalize the oil.”

[…]

“I’ll read to you what the actual Bible has to say on the issue of socialism.”

‘Go now you rich and weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you, behold the hired laborers you have reaped in your fields which you work for by a fraud. And there was a multitude that believed and were of one heart and one soul and neither said any of them ought to of things which he possessed for his own. And they had all things in common and neither among them was lacked for as many possessors of lands and houses sold them and brought the prices of things that were sold and distribution was made unto every man according to his need.’

[…]

“I think religion is a personal matter; it has no place in American politics, however, I’m reading that simply to point out that this notion that one has to be a follower of Jesus, one has to believe in capitalism. This is false, in fact, I would say based on what I just read you, there is no reason that any follower of Jesus Christ should defend a system where profits come before people!”

“We are in the greatest civilization crisis in the history of humanity right now because we have developed the mechanisms to build a beautiful prosperous world but the only way we can do that is if the major banks and factories and centers of economic power come under public control and are no longer operated to make a profit for a small group of billionaires and bankers. We need to have control over the economy, the means of production to use Marxist terminology, must be controlled by the people.” — Caleb Maupin

  4. Please use the “United States” not America, which includes North, Central and South. This is a common failure among writers and the citizens of the U.S.
