“GODDAMNED YOU ALL…I TOLD YOU SO”

On the Steady Rise of Ghastly, Piggish, Obscene and Utterly Unconscionable Wealth Among Sociopaths, Pathological Liars, Greedy-Like-a-Bratty-Spoiled-Two-Year-Old CON ARTISTS, and All Others with Serious and Deep-Seated Character Disorders:

“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.”

~ Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864

 ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..'”

  ~ Thomas Jefferson, 1802

“There are plenty of ugly things about wealth and its possessors in the present age, and I suppose there have been in all ages. There are many rich people who so utterly lack patriotism, or show such sordid and selfish traits of character, or lead such mean and vacuous lives, that all right-minded men must look upon them with angry contempt…

~Theodore Roosevelt

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”

   ~Sinclair Lewis

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

– George Orwell

“When fascism comes to America, it will come in the form of democracy.”  

~Huey Long

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.”

~Franklin D. Roosevelt

The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.

– Theodore Roosevelt

And, Finally:

“GODDAMNED YOU, I TOLD YOU SO”

H.G. Wells
