Plus ca Change…

The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of
the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital.
Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the
interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These
need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on
taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination
and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the
people, and for the people no longer. It is a government of
corporations, by corporations, and for corporations. — How is this?

~ Rutherford B. Hayes

19th President of the United States
(1822 – 1893)
