"Read your Bible, read whatever historical account of humanity you hold dear, and what you'll read about is human tyranny. You'll read of bondage. You'll read of slavery. The vast majority of the people, the vast majority of the human beings who have lived and breathed and walked this planet have lived under the tyranny of despots."
"What he was saying in that quote is, "Look, yeah, there's nothing special about us." And I know that Obama thinks that. Why else would he want to transform this country? He thinks this country's flawed. He thinks this country was founded in error. And he is about transforming it."
"The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are an attempt to provide a political framework to facilitate God's will that each of us are born and remain free. Read the Founders and you can conclude nothing other than that."
"If it's such a great plan, why didn't Obama want credit for it? Why is he happily dumping it off on Putin? And the better question than that, why does Putin want it?"
"We have the communist leader of Russia more proudly quoting the Declaration of Independence than our own president does! We got Vladimir Putin asserting a "moral superiority" to the president of the United States. Vladimir Putin! Do you people in the White House not know what's happened here?"
" Vladimir Putin has positioned himself as a mature adult who stopped your immature child from messing around in somebody else's sandbox that he had no right being in and didn't know what he was doing."
"When the term 'reds' became associated with the communists, pressure was brought to bear on the ownership of the Cincinnati Reds of the National League to change their name, because nobody wanted to be associated with communists. The owner of the Cincinnati Reds said, 'We had the name before the Russkies. Let them change their name.'"
"Vladimir Putin is the guy who's gonna stop the killing, it is not Barack Obama. Vladimir Putin is the guy who's gonna get rid of these evil chemical weapons -- except, he's not. He's gonna make sure they're in a safe place for his buddy Assad, and they'll be in the hands of other anti-American forces somewhere in the Middle East. And Obama happily washes his hands of it. We've got the leader of the Russian Federation, a former KGB agent!"
"I want everybody in this country to think of themselves as exceptional in the sense that they are capable of far more than they know."
"The US is the first time in the history of the world where a government was organized with a Constitution laying out the rules, that the individual was supreme and dominant, and that is what led to the US becoming the greatest country ever because it unleashed people to be the best they could be. Nothing like it had ever happened. That's American exceptionalism."
"Millions of Americans understand exactly and precisely what American exceptionalism is, and that is why they are so appalled about this administration. That is why they are so appalled and opposed to Obamacare, Obama's economic policies, amnesty, illegal immigration with impunity. It's because it is a direct assault on the very foundation and fundamentals of the creation and the founding of this country."
"When I was in junior high, when I was in grade school, I was not propagandized with lies about the greatness of the country. I was told the truth about it. I was taught the history of the founding. I was taught the history of George Washington and Paul Revere and Jefferson and so forth. I absorbed it and I learned."
"You know what I'm talking about here. Any normal, sensible person does. American exceptionalism. America, the first country to enshrine in law that the individual has rights, liberties, and freedom that cannot be taken away, because we are born with them. They are part of our creation. They cannot be taken away even by the government. It's written. And that's what the Democrat Party objects to and doesn't like."
"The First Amendment is a negative liberty because it says what the government can't do. The Second Amendment is a negative liberty because it says what the government can't do, which is the sole reason for our exceptionalism: Limiting government and maintaining the primacy of the individual human being regardless of race, sex, creed, fake womb, or what have you."
"To me the Constitution isn't negative, and liberty isn't negative. But the people running this country believe both to be true, and I think both of those are stupid."
"When the term 'Reds' became associated with the communists, pressure was brought to bear on the ownership of the Cincinnati Reds of the National League to change their name, because nobody wanted to be associated with communists. The owner of the Cincinnati Reds said, 'We had the name before the Russkies. Let them change their name.'"
