Republican Quotes of the Day

"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."

"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people..."

Doesn't sound very Republican, does it? Can you tell me who I'm quoting? I'll give you a hint. The Republicans invoke his name quite often to remind you that they are representing the same party. He also worked often with members of the opposing party, even giving a Democrat his second-in-command position. Considering that, I'm surprised that they aren't giving him the ol' McCain treatment. Instead, they seem quite proud of him.

The answer: Abraham Lincoln.
