America Quotes, Sayings about USA

Yes, America is gigantic, but a gigantic mistake.
Sigmund Freud

And when I speak, I don’t speak as a Democrat. Or a Republican. Nor an American. I speak as a victim of America’s so-called democracy. You and I have never seen democracy – all we’ve seen is hypocrisy. When we open our eyes today and look around America, we see America not through the eyes of someone who has enjoyed the fruits of Americanism. We see America through the eyes of someone who has been the victim of Americanism. We don’t see any American dream. We’ve experienced only the American nightmare.
Malcolm X

Americans detest all lies except lies spoken in public or printed lies.
Edgar Watson Howe

John F. Kennedy
