“This is not about 1 percent or 99 percent. This is about 100 percent. It’s about 100 percent America.

“I will not allow President Obama to take the United States of America and destroy it. If that means I’m the No. 1 target for the Democrat Party, all I got to say is one thing: Bring it on, baby.”
