"I hate America, Louis. I hate this country. It’s just big ideas, and stories, and people dying, and people like you. The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing.

Terminal, crazy and mean. I live in America, Louis, that’s hard enough, I don’t have to love it. You do that. Everybody’s got to love something." -Belize, Angels in America

Maybe the I.R.S. is not quite as bad — yet.” Asked if he knew what the Gestapo, Hitler’s secret police, did during World War II, including imprisonment and murder of millions of Jews, Mr. LePage said, “Yeah, they killed a lot of people.” Asked whether the I.R.S. “was headed in the direction of killing a lot of people,” he answered, “Yeah.””
