->America has been largely taken away from them and their kind, though they are determined to try to repossess it and to prevent the final destructive act of subversion.

->And it reminds me so much of the summer that I was an exchange student in the Soviet Union back in the Seventies and I was shocked when they were saying "no, the children don't belong to parents, they belong to the state." And if any parent said anything in front of their children negative about the wonderful Soviet Union, then we will take their children away and give them to somebody more deserving. And I just thought how horribly shocking that was, that of course parents were the ones who love the children, not the state. And I thought thank God that we don't have that in our country...it just sent chills because it took me back to the Seventies when that's what the Soviet Union used to say and we know how well that worked out.
