  1. “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capitol. Capitol is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed.” Abraham Lincoln said this in his first annual message to Congress on Dec. 3, 1861.Imagine hearing this from Republican leadership today.The Republican Party of today is not the party of Lincoln anymore.
