The Chadds Ford Democrats are entering the 21st C. with a blog. We aim to have a community forum to discuss news, ideas, plans (and, yes, probably a few rants) about issues of the day. Many of us miss the give and take of the letters section of the old Chadds Ford Post. Well, we’d like to duplicate that here but with minutes instead of weeks between comment and rebuttal. Let’s see how it goes.
I think an appropriately historic way to start off is with a quote from an important Republican icon:
“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes…. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong it’s reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” —Abraham Lincoln
