Deeds IV

"While boasting of our noble deeds we're careful to conceal the ugly fact that by an iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, though more refined, is not less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery."
--Horace Greeley
(1811-1872) Editor of the New York Tribune, ran against Ulysses Grant for presidency
Source: 1872, in reference to the National Bank Act of 1863
