"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed". Abraham Lincoln
Not a true Founding Father, but wouldn't Honest Abe make a great political candidate and President today? How perceptive and true so long ago, and seemingly so true today. Is it that silly thing about..... those.......something about history.......doomed.....repeat it?
Could a President, candidate, talk show opinionator even utter such a thing without being called a kook, conspiracy kook, tea-party kook, or Ron Paul?
Why is that? Why is there no real honesty with most Government, Institutions, Corporations, and Money Changers? Why do the goals of the Evil that wish to change our Western way of life, tear up our Constitution, erase our freedoms, and God given rights, get such a free pass?
Why do We The People allow the name calling, finger pointing, lying, and cheating rule the day? How is it that Politicians, that have been around since dirt, expect us to believe them when they say "we're listening to the voters"?
Because We Let Them!
It's time to behave like Abe Lincoln---wake up and smell the coffee.
