TQ THE AMERICAN VOTER:
Arc you r.atis.ied, even content, with existing conditions of life?
Of course you are net.
You arc burdened with taxation and the high coat of living.
For everything entering into your daily life you urc paying an ab
normal price aii unprecedented price.
Largely, if not altogether, becnu-n of the extravagance of government
at Washingtonbecause of padded payrolls because of colossal waste
following the war because of looseness, laxity, inefficiency and incom
petency in handling the country's v.fFairs.
You arc paying the bills for all this you, Americans, men and
women, who make up the good citizenship of this nation.
You are paying, and paying dearly, for all this.
Your Liberty Bonds those I. O. U's of Uncle Sam in wh'ch you
invested so proudly, so generously, so patriotically, to help win Che war,
are today below par. You mnde nacrifices, some of you, most of you, to
buy them, and now, with the wjii long over, but with peace not yet fully
established, you must make furl'ier sacrifices, if compelled to sell those
Liberty Bonds, in order to meet ?he abnormal conditions confronting you
and entering into your daily lic at every turn.
Think of the tragic climax thus put upon your patriotism!
WAR MEANS WASTE. WAR IS WASTE. BUT WAR WASTE
SHOULD HAVE ENDED WITH THE ENDING OF WR. It did not
end then it has not endod. It hui gone on prodigally shamefully.
And you, long-suffering American citizens, are paying the bill paying in
taxes and high cost of liring the price of it ail.
Is it not time to call iz halt high time?
A Republican Congress curtailed governmental extravagance to tho
extent of TWO BILLIONS or more reduced the department estimates
to that extent in spite of tiie resistance and obstruction of the Wilson
Administration. Think of that! But that was just the beginning of re
trenchment and referm which cannot be effected fully until the Executive
and Legislative dcoartmen'is of the government are working together ef
ficiently and in unison to liring about retrenchment and reform. And this
means A COMPLETE CHANGE AT WASHINGTON the substitution of
efficiency for inefficiency, capacity for incapacity, nil along the line.
Then, and then only, will you be relieved of the burdens you arc car
You are hearing talk about America's duty to the world. Much of
it is intended sole) for enmnaign purpose and is ns full of deception as
the cry, "He kept ;. out of wnr," the Democratic slogan of 1916, when
the Administration at Washington knew full well that no power under
Heaven could keop us out of war, and that, in fact, at the very moment,
when an election was being scantily won by false pretences, the Nation
was even then virtually at war.
America do her duty to the world!
When, pray, did America ever fail to do her duty her full duty
in any crisis contingency affecting mankind? Never!
And America can be counted upon as confidently in the future r.s
die has been, counted upon in the past.
AMERCA IS A DUTY DOING NATION. Any suggestion to tho
contrary yhatcver the individual view as to the adjustment of world
affairs, wlvet'ner through a League of Nations or not is an affrqnt to
every truq American and must be dealt with as such.
The Republican Party pledges you Good Government. It pledges
to you efficiency, economy, courage and the square deal.. It pledges you
an American government the sort of government that a long and illustri
ous line of Republican Presidents have given this Republic.
DO NOT ALLOW YOUR COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THE
RESULT TO KEEP YOU FROM THE POLLS ON ELECTION DAY.
Do y ur duty as a citizen an alert, wide-awake, American citizen
just as A nerica has ever done and will continue to do her full duty as
a nation, and thus will you help to put your Uncle Sam's house in order.
Vot for HARDING and COOLIDGE and a REPUBLICAN CON
GRESS on November 2, and all will be made vell.
HARDING and COOLIDGE MEAN GOOD GOVERNMENT.
Vd GOOD GOVERNMENT is what we all need and must have.
