It astounds me how many people do not know what woodrow wilson did and why he said that (and that's presuming they know he said that at all)

The quote in question is in reference to signing the Federal Reserve Act into law. Here's the full quotation:

Quote:
I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.

Yeah. Old Frenchman doesn't explain 'em.

He gets in trouble when he tries to express himself -- mostly because his ideas are doo-doo.
