News Who said this quote?

    Who said this quote??

    I'm taking American Government, and this week's topic focuses on political parties (doctrines). On the subject of liberalism, a quote was introduced for the credo of liberalism. "I am for both the man and dollar, but in case of conflict I am for the man." Who was the person that stated this? (If you don't know who, where can I find the answer? I tried an internet search but that was in vain.)

    I am not sure this is exactly it, but according to this site (Looks like Alan Keyes' campaign site)

    Abe Lincoln wrote:
    The democracy of today hold the liberty of one man to be absolutely nothing, when in conflict with another man's right of property. Republicans, on the contrary, are for both the man and the dollar; but in cases of conflict, the man before the dollar.

    This might be a place to start...
