  39. “We need to put limits on how much an individual, group or business can spend on influencing an individual legislator or a whole set of legislators.

  54. “[When a John McCain political campaign video that used her image] That wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which means I’m running for President. So thanks for the endorsement white-haired dude, and I want America to know I’m like, totally ready to lead.” ~ Paris Hilton

  57. “I think one of the core ideas in America has always been conversation and being able to question our systems of government, and being able to dictate our own communities and how we want this country to work. And I feel like we’re losing part of that because of the way that even our current political campaign is centered more around celebrity than anything else, and so we’re kind of losing conversation. We’re still having conversations, but they seem to be more about like Donald Trump’s hair and like memes of his face more than anything else.” ~ Amandla Stenberg
  58. “I’ve repeatedly seen the anti-Russian card played during domestic political campaigns in the States. I think that it’s a very short-sighted approach.

Vermont remains a “cheap state” for the Republican National Committee. So putting $5 or $10 million into Vermont – compared to New York or California or Illinois – that’s small potatoes.” ~ Bernie Sanders
  61. “There are so many similarities between a startup venture and a political campaign – the rhythm, the tempo, the hours, the intensity.” ~ Mike McCurry

  62. “I pledge you, pledge myself, to a New Deal for the American people. Let us all here assembled constitute ourselves prophets of a new order of competence and of courage.

  63. “The term Hispanic, coined by technomarketing experts and by the designers of political campaigns, homogenizes our cultural diversity (Chicanos, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans become indistinguishable), avoids our indigenous cultural heritage and links us directly with Spain.
