Famous quote by Malone during a Senate speech:
The Banking System
"I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the past 49 years, they would move on Washington, they would not wait for an election....It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States". Senator George W Malone, 1957.
It would seem the good Senator was hysterically wrong.
He hit a homerun. But please explain why you think he's wrong?
