Ralph Nader, announcing his presidential candidacy in Washington, D.C. on February 21, 2000, said, "The struggle between the forces of democracy and plutocracy has ebbed and flowed throughout our history ... The earlier nineteenth-century democratic struggles by abolitionists against slavery, by farmers against large oppressive railroads and banks, and later by new trade unionists against the brutal workplace conditions of the early industrial and mining era helped mightily to make America and its middle class what it is today. They demanded that economic power subside or be shared."
