Cross of Gold Speech - William Jennings Bryan

This quote was added by malevolarky
You come to us and tell us that the great cities are in favor of the gold standard. I tell you that the great cities rest upon these broad and fertile prairies. Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic. But destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.

This famous speech is so much hubris, given that bimetalism was a terrible idea, but it's still a damn impressive piece of wordsmithing.
