“We need to repudiate the corporate tyranny that now owns our Congress, owns our government and has its tentacles in every corner of our civilization. To me, this is what the Democratic party should be saying. And if no one running as a Democrat is going to say it, then I am.”

“We need an emergency level transition from a dirty economy to a clean economy; we need to move from a war economy to a peace economy and we need to push back against what is essentially a matrix of corporate tyranny.”

“So, to me whether you’re 80 years old or 18 years old, whether it’s about the next 20 years of your life or the life of your grandchildren, [this presidential election] is about the state of our democracy and possibly the state of the habitability of the planet.”

“You take the top five pharmaceutical companies last year alone and their profit was 80 billion dollars. Meanwhile we have people rationing their insulin in this country; we have people who are putting GoFundMe pages on the Internet to pay for life-saving operations for themselves and their loved ones.”

“If I became president I would have a very honest conversation with the American people about the Supreme Court. The way I look at it now, it’s basically a rogue institution. We’re supposed to have three co-equal branches of government and they’ve made themselves into authorities, not only overriding the will of the people but overriding the will of the executive branch, overriding the will of Congress. There’s no reason in the world why there are ethics rules for every other layer of the federal judiciary but not [the Supreme Court]. I think we need to have a very serious conversation about term limits.”

“The GenZ generation are not 20th century people. They weren’t even born in the 20th century. And those who were just there as small children for a while. You know every century is dominated by its own mindset. The 19th century was different than the 20th and the 20th is different than the 21st. Young people today have a different perspective, and I don’t see why they should live their lives at the effect of bad economic ideas left over from the 20th century and neither do they.”

“The role of the political party is not to protect the incumbent. The role of the political party is to facilitate democracy. The role of the political party is to stay in the background. The people, the voters, not the political party, should decide who the candidate is. That is when the political party is supposed to come in and help the nominee. Candidate suppression is a form of voter suppression. What is this idea that they are so overt about protecting the incumbent? This is a made-up scheme. There is nothing in the constitution, there is nothing in the real traditions of American politics to justify that.”

“The message that will win in 2024 won’t be one about surviving an unjust system. The message that is going to win in 2024 is one in which we say we’re going to end the unjust system because over the last 48 years there has been a massive transfer of wealth in the shape of $50 trillion that has gone from the bottom 90 percent of Americans to the top 1 percent, and it is time for us to end that chapter of American History.”

“We (The Carter Center) monitor elections all over the world. And I would not go into a country even to try to monitor a fair election if it had the same policies that we have in this country on holding elections. We’re the only nation in the world that doesn’t give equal free time to all candidates, and it means that anyone who wants to be a viable candidate for president or even for Congress has to have enormous financial wealth personally or appeal to special interest groups to finance a very expensive campaign. That’s unique to our country. It doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world and it’s an unrecognized blight on the Democratic nature of our country. So, it’s almost impossible, just because of the financial barrier, to create any kind of third-party.”  President Jimmy Carter, interview for Kurnhardt Film Foundation
