Redistribution of wealth

“The laboring classes constitute the main part of our population. They should be protected in their efforts peaceably to assert their rights when endangered by aggregated capital, and all statutes on this subject should recognize the care of the State for honest toil, and be framed with a view of improving the condition of the workingman.”

  1. When I see multiple choice answers like this, I always go with what should be the least expected. I was honestly expecting to see Reagan as a choice, but even though he wasn’t as far to the right as his mythology has taken him, he was still pretty damned horrible and this would have been too reasonable for him.

    “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is
    only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if
    labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital,
    and deserves much the higher consideration.”

    Abraham Lincoln, in his first annual message to Congress, December 3, 1861. The Republican Party was founded partly as a labor party. If Fremont and Lincoln saw it today, they would give Newt Gingrich a tattoo on his forehead. With a bowie knife. Limbaugh, they would just laugh at.
