LETTERS to the EDITORS ••••a*********************** 1st Award SECURITY POLITICS To the Los Angeles Times: This being an election Near, Congress is reporting oul a hill which will "liberalize" Social Security. The Congress cannot continue to play- politics with billions of dollars forcefully taken from unsuspecting people. Social Security now holds -I billion dollars in government bonds (IOUs), with only about 500 million dollars cash on hand. Most people think that Social Security i.s operated like an Insurance company, with their money going into a special reserve fund, and when they retire they simply yet their own money hack. This is not the ease. Social Security is a fraud hecanse (1) the money goes into the Treasury and is being spent for other purposes; (2) it's compulsory; (3) it raises (axes and is Inflationary; (4) it competes with private enterprise, and (5) it tends to destroy the faith of the people in their elected representatives. There call he no "security" based on quicksand. Thomas L. Beadles 1314 West 83rd Street Los Angeles 4-1, California 2nd Award RUSSIAN LEADERS PLOT FOR BATTLE To the .S'rm Diego Union: The United States is living in the most terrible fool's paradise of all time. Those who think that Russia does not want war and who tolerate our self-destroying efforts toward an impossible international Utopia are simpletons. They aid appallingly in the early extinction of themselves and the rest of ns. It is not the enslaved Russian people, but their criminal, conspiratorial masters that will launch war against ns. The main- fronts of the Communists ad\.nice against ns slowly, steadily, inexorably, and according to plan. The finale Vi ill he military attack. And we? We make hut puny efforts toward liberating the enslaved satellites. We fatuously waste billions. Our defensive efforts an- deficient. And we are most culpable since we do not even fight wiih vigor and effectiveness the Communists and traitors among ns. Let's reject pcacc-al-any-piice and national suicide! Let's save instead individual freedom, free enterprise, national sovereignty, and civilization! Ralph E. h>si s 4150 Bedford Drive San Diego 10. California 3rd Award PERIL OF COMPLACENCY To the Boston Post: One of the greatest dangers to our security against the Communists is our complacency! Because we so often hear there are only about 25.000 Communists in America, we are apt to shrug away the efforts of congressional committees who are trying to protect us from the evil conspiracy which will slowly but surely gather us into its net unless we wake up! In Russia, only 7 per cent of tbe people are Communists. Just think — 7 per cent control, persecute, torture, put tn death, and have enslaved tbe other 93 per cent of the population! In China the percentage is even smaller — only 3 per cent are Communists who control the other 97 per cent. Here on our own continent, in Guatemala, it took only 2.500 Communists to control a country of 3,000.000! So beware of complacency! Remember Lincoln's words. "To sin by silence when they should protest, makes cowards of men." k'cniHW Ellis Noivak 15 St. Pauls Road South Hempstead. New York "BIGNESS" A SIN? To the Nashville Banner: The current congressional investigation of the Genera] Motors Corporation raises, among others, these questions: (1) Is bigness an evil per se? (2) Can this nation maintain its position of world leadership if its greatest corporation's growth is halted or limited in order to "spread the business" among any and all enterprisers? If corporate bigness is indispensable in meeting the challenge of a totalitarian stale for industrial and scientific world supremacy, then it would be tragic malfeasance to contain corporate dimensions in an idealistic effort to help the little fellow. Mhs. Julian H. Adam's 1 13 Woodmont Blvd. Nashville 5, Tennessee TOO MUCH DEBT FOR A REAL PEACE? To the Hartford Commit: I was interested in your fine editorial in the Cour ant October 3, "Let's Not Shrug Off the Federal Debt.'' The spendthrift elements have always existed in governments and have caused the downfall of many. Benjamin Franklin said. fs inir '^K|- obum News, May, 1956 Page 63
