#Quote
1Nobody is more fearful of a left-right alliance than the plutocrats and the oligarchs. But we're up against an alliance of big corporations and big government that is inextricably linked to a double-standard criminal justice system. People define themselves as powerless and out of the equation. And that is self-fulfilling.
2If God hadn't meant for us to eat sugar, he wouldn't have invented dentists.
3I once said to my father, when I was a boy, 'Dad we need a third political party.' He said to me, 'I'll settle for a second.'
4Nov 2003: "The nation is faced with one of the most corporate-orientated anti-consumer Congresses in our history."
5July 2003: "We need to stimulate communities all over our land to start arboretums, not just as oases of beauty and tranquility but as living teachers of plant life and conservation."
6Sept 2003: "It is fascinating to watch legislators turn away from their usual corporate grips when they hear the growing thunder of the people."
