From Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail ’72 by Hunter S. Thompson, reputed to be the best presidential campaign election book ever written.

“Hear me, people. We have now to deal with another race–small and feeble when out fathers first met them, but now great and overbearing. Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possession is a disease with them. These people have made many rules that the rich may break but the poor may not. They take their tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich and those who rule.”

Sitting Bull sure nailed that one. How little has changed in 135 years.
