Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.
I'm not a natural leader. I'm too intellectual; I'm too abstract; I think too much.
The secular elites are so terrified of telling the truth about radical Islam. When you talk about the radical Islamists, we have got to get straight and get serious and talk about it in the right way.

The most important social welfare program in America is a job.

Only the elites despise earning money.
In the middle of a recession no tax increase is justified because it kills jobs, and any tax increase is a job-killing measure and should be defeated.
