Abraham Lincoln NAILED It!!!
How ironic: there's a gang of rightwing demagogues going around calling themselves The Party of Lincoln. If only these corporate thugs and their useful idiots knew:
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” — U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
(letter to Col. William F. Elkins)
Gee, I'm glad those paranoid predictions never came true.
