Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames.

If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.

If one tries to think about history, it seems to me – it’s like looking at a range of mountains. And the first time you see them, they look one way.

I just believe if you don’t believe in God, then where is your moral barometer? That’s just me talking. You can believe what you want to believe.

My father taught me that the only way you can make good at anything is to practice, and then practice some more.
When you have a conflict, that means that there are truths that have to be addressed on each side of the conflict.

Beto’s copy of the Bill of Rights goes from one to three. Mine includes the Second Amendment. But there are a whole host of people here in Washington… they would be happy to confiscate America’s guns. And if you don’t believe that, then you probably also still believe in Bigfoot.
America is dumb. It’s like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you – aggressive. My daughter is four; my boy is one. I’d like them to see America as a toy – a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling, and then get out.
