  32. “The culture of death is imposed by economic and political interests, the arrogance of power, corruption. I blame the first world for having taken our riches for so many years.

Leadership is admitting that America’s superpower status was never deserved or warranted.” ~ Rush Limbaugh

That’s not America.” ~ Rush Limbaugh
