Lincoln Had It Right...!
Like him or not, it seems like ol' Abe hit the nail on the head with his concerns on this!
Amazing how forward thinking some of the old timers were, isn't it?
"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. 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 upon the prejudices of the people until all 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." -
President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864 in a letter to Colonel William F. Elkins
Seems like a lot of our past leaders could sense the corruption that has befallen our country today. I can only wonder what keeps us from seeing the same thing?
Coffee in the kitchen today! Alex is still messin' with the weather!
