goes about crying, “It’s time for a
change.” I heard it the other day in
Cleveland. But let me tell you the
answer that I also heard.
While waiting for the redcap to
bring my bags out of the airport, I
found myself standing by a group of
taxi drivers who had left their cabs
because of the terrific heat.
What Do Y041 Mean—Time for
One of them sputtered, “I think it's
time for a change.” Whereupon, a
great big fellow advanced upon him
booming, “What do you mean—time
for a change? You’re better off than
you ever thought you might be in
your whole life. You've had a new
car every year for the last five years
that I know of. You have a huge TV
set. Your wife has a washing ma
chine. What’s the matter with you
anyhow? The heat? You ought to
have your head examined.”
As I drove away, the other drivers
were loudly supporting the big fellow.
Twenty Yours of Change—
For the Better
As a matter of fact, the United
States has been changing all the time
for the last twenty years—changing
for the better. America has achieved
miracles under Democratic adminis
trations because Democrats are not
afraid of change. We believe that
the best is never good enough for
our country. By constantly working
for a better life for all of our people,
we have constantly raised the stand
ard of living in our country.
The very poor have become fewer by
two thirds and even they are better
off. The well-to-do and the rich have
become more numerous. In the 30’s,
only one family in about fifty was
in the $5,000 a year class, and only
one in a 100 in the $10,000 class, To-
day one family out of six has $5,000
or more a year and one out of every
20 American families has an annual
income of $10,000 or over!
Americans will not vote for ‘‘a
change” in November.
