“We are much worse off today”

“We fought the Revolutionary War for no taxation without representation, it seems to me that we are much worse off today, because we are heavily taxed, and only the king’s corporations control this Country, together with mob rule, of the special interests.”

— James Montgomery
(1771-1854) Scottish-born hymnodist, poet and editor

[And this quote was sometime prior to 1854! I was falling down when I read the part about “corporations and special interests” controlling Congress. He knew the country was going downhill and it wasn’t even a hundred years old yet! Very few of us can see how much worse it has gotten in the ensuing 160 plus years. Well, those of us who voted for Mr. Trump damn well have a clue. – James Roach]
