"Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the
fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first
existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the
higher consideration." Abraham Lincoln's First Annual Message to
Congress, December 3, 1861.
My, my how things have changed in the US. Can you so much as imagine a
President saying any such thing today? In an *address to Congress*?
Here are some more quotes from Lincoln. Bush would not know how to
spell, or probably the definition, of many of those noble words:
Now add this quote, from earlier the same year, to the quote below
about Labor vis-à-vis Capital:

"I have never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the
sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence." Abraham

and while you're at it, consider this one:

"That I am not a member of any Christian Church, is true; but I have
never denied the truth of the Scriptures; and I have never spoken with
intentional disrespect of religion in general, or any denomination of
Christians in particular." Abraham Lincoln

The thinking of the greatest Presidents and statesmen of the United
States, those people whose humanistic and enlightened vision it was
that served as the wellspring and foundation of the desire for freedom
from Britain, the Declaration of Independence and creation of the
Nation and those who followed in their Spirit, before she was
derailed, was far more in line with that of the Left Socialists than
with the Capitalist and Rightists.
