Transcript IMMEDIATE PROGRAM The following are measures which we believe of immediate practical importance and for which we wage an especially energetic campaign: POLITICAL DEMANDS (1) Complete adult suffrage by the elimination of all sex, residential and educational qualifications, by the abolition of all registration fees, poll taxes, or other impediments to voting. Enfranchisement of those who have declared their intention to become citizens and have resided in this country one year. (2) Democratic control of the government through a constitutional amendment providing for the initiative, referendum and recall. (3) Effective voting and proportional representation on all legislative bodies. (4) The abolition of the power of the courts to make and unmake laws because of alleged unconstitutionality or other grounds. (5) Rigid maintenance of the right of free press, speech and assemblage in peace and in war. ECONOMIC DEMANDS (1) National ownership and democratic control of the railroads, telegraphs and telephones, steamship lines, and all other social means of transportation, communication, storage and distribution. (2) Nationalization of banking and of socially beneficial kinds of insurance. (3) Direct loans to municipalities and states at cost, FURTHER DEMANDS The following measures do not exhaust by any means the ways by which the workers can be helped to freedom. They are compiled as suggestive of further activity to that end. (1) Abolition of the Senate and the veto power of the President. 21
