Newt Gingrich is a totalitarian wing-nut, whacko.
He would be completely happy in a prison.
He would be completely happy as a prison warden.
That is the fellow whom left his wife dying on her cancer bed for another woman, and while he was a congressman.
A different set of rules indeed.
Gingrich continues to show his corrupt mettle.
He's very obviously forgotten what Abraham Lincoln said:
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that “all men are created equal.” We now practically read in “all men are created equal, except negroes.” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners and catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty—to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy."
