Quote


“Of all the contrivances for cheating the laboring classes of mankind none have been more effectual than that which deludes them with paper money. Ordinary tyranny, oppression, excessive taxation… these bear lightly on the happiness of the mass of the community compared with fraudulent currencies and the robberies committed by depreciated paper.” ~ Daniel Webster, Congress 1812
