A couple old quotes

As a result of the war, 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 on the prejudices of the people until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war.”
--Abraham Lincoln

“Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered,
I’ve seen lots of funny men,
Some will rob you with a six gun,
And some with a fountain pen.”

--Woody Guthrie

    Written just prior to the end of the Civil War, Lincoln's words are eerily prophetic of today's America.
