Quote of the day - Banks and Money Power

A topical quote:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and cause me to tremble for safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic destroyed.
So who came up with these rather pertinent words?

Why, Abraham Lincoln, in 1864.

Hat tip: The Bugle

It's ironic that he was one of the earliest Republicans.
