An American populist leader is confident.

I am here, William Jennings Bryan.

I have watched with considerable care the unfolding of the American drama, as power has been consolidated since my death in 1925. This is the sort of process that can go no further. It has nowhere else to go - but down.

Be not discouraged. Know that the Creator is not indifferent to all this. There is a plan unfolding that will right the wrongs, and for you to be sure about it, you must have faith.


William Jennings Bryan (March 19, 1860 – July 26, 1925) was an American lawyer, statesman, and politician. He was a three-time Democratic Party nominee for President of the United States. One of the most popular speakers in American history, he was noted for his deep, commanding voice. Bryan was a devout Presbyterian, a strong proponent of popular democracy, an outspoken critic of banks and railroads, a leader of the silverite movement in the 1890s, a dominant figure in the Democratic Party, a peace advocate, a prohibitionist, an opponent of Darwinism, and one of the most prominent leaders of Populism in late 19th- and early 20th century America. He was called “The Great Commoner” because of his total faith in the goodness and rightness of the common people. He was defeated by William McKinley in the intensely fought 1896 election and 1900 election, but retained control of the Democratic Party. (Source :Wikipedia)
