Latin American Politics quotes by Jorge Ramos
#1. Yes, Latinos dream more. When you live in poverty, when your president is imposed upon you, when they kill someone and no one gets indicted, and when only a few get rich, of course you dream more. It's no coincidence that magic realism happens in Latin America, because for us dreams and aspirations are part of life. #Quote by Jorge Ramos
Latin American Politics quotes by Robert F. Kennedy
#2. A revolution is coming – a revolution which will be peaceful if we are wise enough; compassionate if we care enough; successful if we are fortunate enough – but a revolution which is coming whether we will it or not. We can affect its character; we cannot alter its inevitability.

[Report to the United States Senate on his trip to Latin America and the Alliance for Progress, May 9-10 1966] #Quote by Robert F. Kennedy
Latin American Politics quotes by Sebastian Arcelus
#3. I'm a first generation American. My mother is Italian and Russian and a lot of other things, and my father is Uruguayan. In fact, my mother's been married twice, and both men were Uruguayan. So I grew up in a very European/Latin American-influenced home. #Quote by Sebastian Arcelus
Latin American Politics quotes by Bill Bryson
#4. More recently, during a debate in the House of Lords in 1978 one of the members said: "If there is a more hideous language on the face of the earth than the American form of English, I should like to know what it is." (We should perhaps bear in mind that the House of Lords is a largely powerless, nonelective institution. It is an arresting fact of British political life that a Briton can enjoy a national platform and exalted status because he is the residue of an illicit coupling 300 years before between a monarch and an orange seller.) #Quote by Bill Bryson
Latin American Politics quotes by Barry Goldwater
#5. We now have a president who tries to save money by turning off lights in the White House, even as he heads toward a staggering addition to the national debt. "L.B.J." should stand for Light Bulb Johnson. #Quote by Barry Goldwater
Latin American Politics quotes by Gore Vidal
#6. For the average American freedom of speech is simply the freedom to repeat what everyone else is saying and no more. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Latin American Politics quotes by Bob Schieffer
#7. American politics used to be an amateur sport. But somewhere along the way, we handed over to professionals all the things people used to do for free. #Quote by Bob Schieffer
Latin American Politics quotes by Tony Blankley
#8. I've always found that avoiding insanity is useful in life - which in American politics sometimes puts one in the minority. #Quote by Tony Blankley
Latin American Politics quotes by Senator Joseph Clark (D-Penn)
#9. Every well-informed American knows that the American oil companies are deep in the politics of the Middle East ... [and] the CIA is deep in the politics of the Middle East. #Quote by Senator Joseph Clark (D-Penn)
Latin American Politics quotes by William Anthony Donohue
#10. The ACLU's record, far from showing a momentary wavering from impartiality, is replete with attemps to reform American society according to the wisdom of liberalism. The truth of the matters is that the ACLU has always been a highly politicized organization. #Quote by William Anthony Donohue
Latin American Politics quotes by Ted Nugent
#11. Unfortunately, there are people in America, there are people in politics, there are people in positions of authority, who want to forcibly unarm, and force in to helplessness, American citizens. #Quote by Ted Nugent
Latin American Politics quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#12. The term 'the American Left' is as near to being meaningless or nonsensical as any term could really be in politics. It isn't really a force in politics anymore. And it would do well to ask itself why that is. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Latin American Politics quotes by Mona Charen
#13. The Senate wants you to know how terribly, sincerely sorry they are even though not a single member of today's Senate was even in office the last time America saw a lynching. Some were not even born. But that's the way we prefer our apologies in American politics. We don't apologize for our own sins. #Quote by Mona Charen
Latin American Politics quotes by Ndabaningi Sithole
#14. It appears it would be quite un-American not to be suspicious of the government or to distrust it. History has taught them a little too much about the tragic frailties of human governments, but it has also driven home to them that they must control firmly political and economic power, which, handed over to any government in their land, could be easily used to oppress them. #Quote by Ndabaningi Sithole
Latin American Politics quotes by Moises Naim
#15. In many Latin American countries, the historic ties of Catholic bishops with the political elite rendered them less sensitive to the conditions of the poor and especially of indigenous people. #Quote by Moises Naim
Latin American Politics quotes by Jane Mayer
#16. The Kochs were unusually single-minded, but they were not alone. They were among a small, rarefied group of hugely wealthy, archconservative families that for decades poured money, often with little public disclosure, into influencing how Americans thought and voted. Their efforts began in earnest in the second half of the twentieth century. In addition to the Kochs, this group included Richard Mellon Scaife, an heir to the Mellon banking and Gulf Oil fortunes; Harry and Lynde Bradley, midwesterners enriched by defense contracts; John M. Olin, a chemical and munitions company titan; the Coors brewing family of Colorado; and the DeVos family if Michigan, founders of the Amway marketing empire. Each was different, but together they formed a new generation of philanthropist, bent on using billions if dollars from their private foundations to alter the direction of American politics. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Latin American Politics quotes by Salma Hayek
#17. You know Latin people? African-American people? How our skin ages more slowly? Even though we're dramatic, we move our faces, we eat higher-fat foods, we're the ones with fewer wrinkles - it makes you wonder. #Quote by Salma Hayek
Latin American Politics quotes by Lester Maddox
#18. The reason he [Jimmy Carter] says he never lies is because he thinks the truth originates with him. #Quote by Lester Maddox
Latin American Politics quotes by David McCullough
#19. The source of our suffering has been our timidity. We have been afraid to think ... Let us dare to read, think, speak, write. #Quote by David McCullough
Latin American Politics quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#20. One Saturday morning last May, I joined the presidential motorcade as it slipped out of the southern gate of the White House. A mostly white crowd had assembled. As the motorcade drove by, people cheered, held up their smartphones to record the procession, and waved American flags. To be within feet of the president seemed like the thrill of their lives. I was astounded. An old euphoria, which I could not immediately place, gathered up in me. And then I remembered, it was what I felt through much of 2008, as I watched Barack Obama's star shoot across the political sky. I had never seen so many white people cheer on a black man who was neither an athlete nor an entertainer. And it seemed that they loved him for this, and I thought in those days, which now feel so long ago, that they might then love me, too, and love my wife, and love my child, and love us all in the manner that the God they so fervently cited had commanded. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Latin American Politics quotes by Howard Baker
#21. In Washington I'm thought of as a conservative, but in Tennessee I'm thought of as a Bolshevik. #Quote by Howard Baker
Latin American Politics quotes by William A. Rusher
#22. Do you realize that at the moment we have Barry Goldwater fighting the Moral Majority, with The New York Times rooting for Goldwater? Times have changed. #Quote by William A. Rusher
Latin American Politics quotes by Bocafloja
#23. A white leftist Mexican activist isn't the same in the media as the son of a farmer in Guerrero, they aren't worth the same. In the same imaginary of the Latin American Left exists a racism, a racism that corresponds to processes of colonialism internal to almost all countries in Latin America. #Quote by Bocafloja
Latin American Politics quotes by Marco Rubio
#24. First of all, let me just say what's interesting about American politics is that if things really get bad here, people say nasty things about you. From a global perspective, if politics get bad, you die, so let's just keep some perspective here. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Latin American Politics quotes by John F. Kerry
#25. In American elections there are no losers, because whether or not our candidates win or lose, the next morning we wake up as Americans. #Quote by John F. Kerry
Latin American Politics quotes by Anonymous
#26. Although the American Standard Version (1901) had used "Jehovah" to render the tetragrammaton (the sound of y being represented by j and the sound of w by v, as in Latin), for two reasons the Committees that produced the RSV and the NRSV returned to the more familiar usage of the King James Version. (1) The word "Jehovah" does not accurately represent any form of the divine name ever used in Hebrew. (2) The use of any proper name for the one and only God, as though there were other gods from whom the true God had to be distinguished, began to be discontinued in Judaism before the Christian era and is inappropriate for the universal faith of the Christian church. #Quote by Anonymous
Latin American Politics quotes by Zell Miller
#27. Why is it that there's more indignation over a photo of a prisoner with underwear on his head than over the video of a young American with no head at all? #Quote by Zell Miller
Latin American Politics quotes by Laura Esquivel
#28. The trouble with crying over an onion is that once the chopping gets you started and the tears begin to well up, the next thing you know you just can't stop. #Quote by Laura Esquivel
Latin American Politics quotes by Dwayne Johnson
#29. Right now the best way that I can impact the world is through entertainment. One day, and that day will come, I can impact the world through politics. The great news is that I am American, therefore I can become President. But don't forget: I am G.I. Joe. #Quote by Dwayne Johnson
Latin American Politics quotes by Edward Brooke
#30. The polarization of Congress; the decline of civility; and the rise of attack politics in the 1980s, the 1990s, and the early years of the new century are a blot on our political system and a disservice to the American people. #Quote by Edward Brooke
Latin American Politics quotes by Mari Carmen Ramirez
#31. Far from being dominated by ideas from Paris and New York, Latin American artists were often the innovators. They were doing drip paintings in advance of Pollock, creating language art before the American conceptualists, and fashioning shaped canvases decades before Kelly or Stella. #Quote by Mari Carmen Ramirez
Latin American Politics quotes by John W. Dean
#32. Social conservatism and neoconservatism have revived authoritarian conservatism, and not for the better of conservatism or American democracy. True conservatism is cautious and prudent. Authoritarianism is rash and radical. American democracy has benefited from true conservatism, but authoritarianism offers potentially serious trouble for any democracy. #Quote by John W. Dean
Latin American Politics quotes by Mel Martinez
#33. We need a new Latin American policy that is bold - different. We need to focus on building civil society, focus on the lack of infrastructure. We need look at ways to foster economic opportunity. There needs to be a more comprehensive economic vision in the region. #Quote by Mel Martinez
Latin American Politics quotes by Wendell Berry
#34. We Americans are not usually thought to be a submissive people, but of course we are. Why else would we allow our country to be destroyed? Why else would we be rewarding its destroyers? Why else would we all - by proxies we have given to greedy corporations and corrupt politicians - be participating in its destruction? Most of us are still too sane to piss in our own cistern, but we allow others to do so and we reward them for it. We reward them so well, in fact, that those who piss in our cistern are wealthier than the rest of us.
How do we submit? By not being radical enough. Or by not being thorough enough, which is the same thing. #Quote by Wendell Berry
