These are perilous times for squandering money. What is it we're doing to ourselves? Maybe we're just letting the federal government run away with us, and we simply must cut back. Or is there a new "intent'' afoot? I don'l believe thai most ..I us [eel that we've outgrown the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, anv more than we feel the need to "trade In" old-fashioned vii tins like hustle, initiative, honesty, integrity, for newer concepts. Basic principles are un- e hanging. So I shall continue mv search for the righl course and put the finger on the sore spots. Could it be theit wc should beware zealous men, who would make over our society? They many times are wealthy; mam limes they've prospered umle'r free enterprise, but they want to make a different and better society. Sometimes they start bv saving. "I don't want mv child to go through what I went through." They visualize sparing their child and helping others through the trials and tribulations of life bv protecting all under the paternal and protective cloak ..I government. On tbe contrary, some, including my- F.Mis Forum News, January, 1956 self, believe in training children in tbe basic concepts of living a good life, of being morally sound, personally aggressive, and accept- ing the challenge of personal responsibility, of moral and spiritual living. In this pattern there is no room for socialism or communism or the paternal big government. Rather, there is only the expectation and desire for oppor- tunitv — which comes from freedom, economic freedom. So what can we do? AMERICAN WAYS AND MEANS First, let's stop increasing the -i/e' and functions ol federal government! Let's continue the administration's valiant effort to halt the runaway locomotive. The Hoover Commission can help to point the way. Second, let's eliminate those functions of government in which the government has no business. Third, let's decentralize the government, moving it back as feir as possible to the state and local level where the Tenth Vmendment says it should be. Fourth, let's rededicate curse he's lei recognizing and keeping our faith in what comes from the \lniighty — our basic rights and freedom. Let's keep government our servant, not our master. Let's keep our government in its proper confines with free enterprise the motive power. How tragic if seee ied- ism. or big government as we know it. should cause our downfall. Our destiny, rather, is to lead the world to a realization of the truth and value of our "American Way" of living, in contrast to the dee eieleiii. geetlless repudiation of individual worth found in socialistic and communistic societies. A PLEA AND A PLEDGE James Madison said, "We have staked the whole future of America not on the power nl government, far frnm it, but on the capacity of mankind for self-government. We have that capacity; it's our gov- ernmenl and our future. In this governmenl of, by, and for tbe people, we are the people. We can blaze the trail for the world — our wav. Congressmen should always be in the vanguard to protect American riglils and the American way of living. Lets liile'ilii eih' eniiselves lei the fight that's never finished. Let's secure for ourselves and our children and other generations to come the continuing rewards for the type of society that pre- serves opportunity and freedom. To this end I dedicate nn efforts.
