- 65% of all Republicans like the TEA Party movement. You know what percentage of Democrats like it? 19%. There's our common ground. There is none on the Left. The common ground is on the Right.
- If you're a libertarian, you can't believe in global warming. It's an attempt from the Left to make sure we have bigger government.
- People ask me: "You're running for national Chair, will you run for President in 2012?" Let me give you an honest answer: I think this party right now is too disorganized to ever do well in a presidential election. And I don't think, until I can get elected chairman and build it and organize it and be CEO of this party for a few years, I don't think it's worth it running for president, or senator, or anything else -- you'll get 1% of the vote. I want to seriously run for president, after I've been national Chair, in 2016, after I've built this party, and we really are structured and organized, and I have a chance to actually get 5, 10, 15 million votes. And if luck happens, and we catch fire, and we catch lightning in a bottle, and maybe even win. That's my current game plan.
