Knowing how much you love quotes from the Founding Fathers...
'[W]e find here [in America] two great gangs of political speculators, who alternately take possession of the state power and exploit it by the most corrupt means and for the most corrupt ends---and the nation is powerless against these two great cartels of politicians, who are ostensibly its servants, but in reality exploit and plunder it.'
---Engles, Introduction to Marx'sThe Civil War in France , International 1940, pp. 20-21.
