"Wall Street owns the country. It is no longer a government of the  people, for the people and by the people, but a government of Wall  Street, by Wall Street, and for Wall Street. The great common people of  this country are slaves, and monopoly is the master…Let the  bloodhounds of money who have dogged us thus far beware." - Mary Elizabeth Lease, 1890
