The title says it all, my friends..

“History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them.”
~Martin Luther King Jr. –

“We should measure the health of our society not at its apex, but at its base.”
Andrew Jackson – 

“When the rich steal from the poor, it’s called busine$$. When the poor steal from the rich, it’s called a crime.”
– The 99% – 

“The trade of the petty usurer is hated with most reason: it makes a profit from currency itself, instead of making it from the process which currency was meant to serve. Their common characteristic is obviously their sordid avarice.”
– Aristotle –    

“Trouble brews when we steal from the poor and give to the rich.”
– Robert Kiyosaki –    

“In America, public opinion is the leader.”
– Frances Perkins – 

“There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need, but not for man’s greed.”
Mahatma Gandhi –  

“Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.”
– Bernie Sanders –

“There are a lot of people who are doing wonderful things, quietly, with no motive of greed, or hostility toward other people, or delusions of superiority.”
– Charles Kuralt – 

“The man who has his millions will want everything he can lay his hands on and then raise his voice against the poor devil who wants ten cents more a day.”
– Samuel Gompers –  

“People should not be imprisoned without having the ability to challenge the legality of that imprisonment.”
– Jeff Bingaman –

 “All history has been a history of class struggles between dominated classes at various stages of social development.”
– Friedrich Engels –

“A tyrant…is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.”
– Plato – 

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt –  

“The law does not pretend to punish everything that is dishonest. That would seriously interfere with business.”
– Clarence Darrow –  

“Only a fool would try to deprive working men and working women of their right to join the union of their choice.”
~Dwight D. Eisenhower –

“if we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.”
– Ulysses S. Grant –     

“All wealth is the product of Labor.”
– John Locke –   

“The enjoyment of power inevitably corrupts the judgment of reason, and perverts its liberty.”
– Immanuel Kant –  

“The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.”
– Theodore Roosevelt –  

“Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.”
– Aristotle –  

“The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.”
– Thomas Jefferson –  

“The trade union movement represents the organized economic power of the workers… It is in reality the most potent and the most direct social insurance the workers can establish.”
– Samuel Gompers –    

“If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool.”
~Abraham Lincoln –  

“Most of man’s problems upon this planet, in the long history of the race, have been met and solved either partially or as a whole by experiment based on common sense and carried out with courage.”
– Frances Perkins –

About jackjodell53

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
