'To abolish poverty, abolish plutocracy' (Rutherford B. Hayes)

Here's the rest of the above quote from our 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes (1822 - 1893) but I wonder which modern day Republicans (or Democrats) would like to hear it much less implement it. For then their over-stuffed gravy train would have to be brought to a screeching halt instead of honest people's incomes dissolving into thin air:

"Abolish plutocracy if you would abolish poverty. As millionaires increase, pauperism grows. The more millionaires, the more paupers."

That pretty much explains the widening gap between haves and have-nots. And his statement sounds as if Mr. Hayes didn't consider the government he was part of as a plutocracy already in authority and ruling their shriveled little hearts out.

But then he did say "if you would" abolish poverty, didn't he?

So now you know what I'm about to type, don't you? That 'pauperism' is another of Pluto/Chiron's words of oppression, another -ism from their very long to-do list. Yep.

And it amuses me that President Hayes was perhaps the first-ever multi-tasker for he was the first president to have a telephone and a typewriter in the White House at the same time!
