No Googling. Who said the following (italics mine)?
The railroads were subsidized, sometimes by grants of money, oftener by grants of land; some of the most valuable oil lands in the United Sttes were granted to assist the financing of the railroad which pushed through the Southwest. A nascent merchant marine was assisted by grants of money, or by mail subsidies, so that our steam shipping might ply the seven seas. Some of my friends tell me that they do not want the government in business. With this I agree; but I wonder whether they realize the implications of the past. For while it has been American doctrine that the government must not go into business in competition with private enterprises, still it has been traditional particularly in Republican administrations for business urgently to ask the government to put at private disposal all kinds of government assistance. The same man who tells you that he does not want to see the government interfere in business - and he means it, and has plenty of good reasons for saying so - is the first to go to Washington and ask the government for a prohibitory tariff on his product. When things get just bad enough...he will go with equal speed to the United States government and ask for a loan...Each group has sought protection from the government for its own special interests, without realizing that the function of government must be to favor no small group at the expense of its duty to protect the rights of personal freedom and of private property of all its citizens.
The floor is open for guesses.
