Theodore Roosevelt: "Malefactors of Great Wealth"


Republican President Theodore Roosevelt in a speech at Provincetown, Mass, to accuse the "Trusts" of causing the financial "panic" of 1907. He went on to say:

    ". . . [these men] combine to bring about as much financial stress as possible, in order to discredit the policy of the government and thereby secure a reversal of that policy, so that they may enjoy unmolested the fruits of their own evil-doing. . . I regard this contest as one to determine who shall rule this free country—the people through their governmental agents, or a few ruthless and domineering men whose wealth makes them peculiarly formidable because they hide behind the breastworks of corporate organization."

Yes! Absolument!

By way of making a contribution:

"We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of the few, but we can't have both."

Louis B. Brandeis said that.

Not A Third Party, It’s A Second Way

Americans Elect isn’t a third party, it’s a second way to nominate presidential candidates. What’s the difference, you ask?

Well, political parties are known for their specific ideologies and agendas -- issues that define them as a whole and serve as a sorting system for potential candidates. And, if you were to run on their ticket, you’d likely be expected, by the party and the voters, to reflect those beliefs.

Americans Elect is about the process. There’s no political ideology. The only agenda is that of the American voters. What are the critical issues facing our nation? That’s for YOU to discuss and decide. To assist in that decision, [sign in to see URL] asks questions, hosts discussions and creates an open environment for voters to discuss the issues that matter to them. It’s one where you set the agenda, you shape the debate and you select candidates who match your values. Not the other way around. It’s a new way to nominate the president. And in comparison to our current system, there’s a big difference.
