"If monopoly persists, monopoly will always sit at the helm of government. I do not expect monopoly to restrain itself. If there are men in this country big enough to own the government of the United States, they are going to own it."
Woodrow Wilson
(1856-1924) 28th US President

Reader comments about this quote:
And they do own it today through international financial transactions selling our country to foreign powers and the lock on our economy with debt money and perpetual debt.

    I suspect that George Soros could name the owners of our government, and he is one of them. How a non descript Illinois senator could suddenly become the president is interesting, to say the least.Not to mention the fact that he had plenty of money backing him. I suspect that George Soros and his gang of lefties are pulling the strings.

    The Supreme Court under Warren settled the issue, The U.S. is no longer governed by We The People but rather a foreign despot. Elections are to select those that will represent the new owners in their theocratic oligarchy against the individual sovereigns of We The People.

    A perfect statement for what happened as big business brought us King George W. Jim needs to start reading the news to better understand... it is interesting when a man who can not speak gets elected contrary to exit polls, it is not interesting when a man who can speak is elected matching exit polls.

    Anonymous, remember the difference between government CORRUPTION and government COLLUSION? Yes, W may be been guilty of collusion, but don't be naive to current corruption or its current variation of collusion.

    A from Reston, which form of socialism do you like best? The kind where there is a mind set for business in an industrialized nation such as allowed in the Nazis (National Socialist German Worker's Party); or, the kind where there is an elite and the poor that are everywhere, as the Lennonists preferred (violently establishing communism). To bad mouth the one in favor of the other does show your colors. Why not try freedom for a change?
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Wilson was right -- he was often right, but he was duped. By signing the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, he thought he was establishing a control against the 'Money Trust' -- the super rich who controlled the majority of the world's wealth and resources. He did not know that the bill was written by the very bankers that he was warning us about. He handed over the nation to these monopolists. He was a damn fool, and was deluded by Col. Mandell House who pulled the strings even from within the White House.
