5 BTLEW I. Oral Work Name some typical cases that the American Presidents have abused their power. Who do you think are among the greatest Presidents in American history?

Related quotes Lesson 15 – The President as Corporate Salesman To be continued on the next page.

7 BTLEW I. Oral Work The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse. Edmund Burke Power is what men seek, and any group that gets it will abuse it. It is the same story. Lincoln Steffens The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. James Madison No government power can be abused long. Mankind will not bear it. There is a remedy in human nature against tyranny, that will keep us safe under every form of government. Samuel Johnson The arts of power and its minions are the same in all countries and in all ages. It marks its victim; denounces it; and excites the public odium and the public hatred, to conceal its own abuses and encroachments. Henry Clay To be continued on the next page. Lesson 15 – The President as Corporate Salesman

8 BTLEW I. Oral Work Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder. George Washington The qualities of a great man are "vision, integrity, courage, understanding, the power of articulation, and profundity of character". Dwight Eisenhower Americanism is a question of principle, of purpose, of idealism, of character. It is not a matter of birthplace or creed or line of descent. Theodore Roosevelt With all the power that a President has, the most important thing to bear in mind is this: You must not give power to a man unless, above everything else, he has character. Character is the most important qualification the President of the United States can have. Richard Nixon To be continued on the next page. Lesson 15 – The President as Corporate Salesman

9 BTLEW I. Oral Work We are... a nation besieged, not from without but from within, subverted not from below but from above. The moneyed class exercises a near monopoly influence over our political life, over the economy, the state, and the media. It is the essence of democracy that we not trust and not have faith in our leaders. Democracy is a system built on distrust. That is why—when a close approximation of it works—we get real debate, investigation, exposure, and accountability. At the heart of all procedural democracy is the idea that we must watch leaders closely, question them sharply, demand to see the documents, look for differing explanations, and pursue open debate about policies, before, during, and after elections. It is often frustrating and sometimes dangerous to challenge those who own and control the land, labor, capital, and technology of society. But, in the long run, it is even more dangerous not to do so. Michael Parenti To be continued on the next page. Lesson 15 – The President as Corporate Salesman

10 BTLEW I. Oral Work History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. James Madison 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. Woodrow Wilson The end of Oral Work. Lesson 15 – The President as Corporate Salesman
