"God gave the earth to all the people, and not to some of them. The privileges should be for all of them, and not bartered off to some of them. That, gentlemen, constitutes my political economy, my politics, and (I say it reverently) my religion. And it is, I believe, the religion that Christ taught the people many years ago."
-- Tom Johnson, mayor of Cleveland and U. S. congressman
