Transcript ^5^^"^ w% wmett LETTERS to the EDITORS **+*•*•••••*•••••••••••••••• first Award LIMIT U. S. OWNERSHIP To tin- Nashville Banner: Few realize that today the federal government owns about 25 per cent of the land area of the United States. Through Its (axing, regulatory, and controlling powers it has confiscated and transferred to itself at least one-half of the private property in the country. It has business properties worth $50 billion and electrical power projects that will produce a fourth of all our power. The government is in the insurance business. It can fix minimum wages. It Can tell the fanner how much to plant without penalty. It regulates and controls in a manner which is socialism itself. Only 20 years ago the states and localities collected 75 per cent of all revenues, but today the federal government collects 75 per cent. Much of what the government controls, it does not own outright — which is communism. The people and the states should enact Constitutional restrictions and limitations °n tin- federal government. Ernie T. Waters Route No. 2 New Prospect Community Lawrenceburg, Tennessee Second Award COURT THREAT Tn the Boston Post: The Supreme Court's decision, ruling out state prosecution for sedition, has nullified sedition laws in 12 states by declaring that the Smith Act supersedes "|| si laws. How absolutely ridiculous! Even unit of society from the individual °H up has a right to protect itself. The individual states are sovereign Powers entitled to all the lights of sover- °i(;ii powers except those that are explicitly reserved to the federal government 0) tin- Constitution. Therefore, the states °*ve -i right to protect themselves against se(litioii. even when it's a ease of sedition "gainst the federal government. Tin- federal government i.s the creation of the States. An act of Congress can never super- J*de tin- Constitution. Neither can the *lpreme Court supersede the Constitu- ""i These nine men are not the su preme law of the land. The Constitution i.s still the supreme law. This decision is a most serious threat to the welfare of the people, PlllI.IP E. O'Connejjl 18 Whitcomb Terrace South Weymouth, Massachusetts Third Award TURNABOUT To the Los Angeles Times: If a guaranteed annual wage for labor is possible, why not a guaranteed annual dividend for capital? If a business fails, labor can always walk out with all it put in — skill of hand or brain — intact, to market elsewhere. Capital not only sees its wage, the dividend, suddenly cut off, but the only source of that dividend, the investment itself, anywhere from partially to totally wiped out. Sauce for the goose should be sauce lor tin- gander. Only who's going to supply tin- sauce? Annice Richaroson 432 South Curson Avenue. East Los Angeles 36, California FOREIGN AID To the Boston Post: There are some indications that Congress is on the verge of rebelling against the administration regarding the fantastic- amount of tax dollars it is planning to appropriate for foreign aid. The best way to put a cheek on tin's reckless spending is to attach a rider to all foreign aid hills, providing that 25 per cent ol the total appropriation shall he taken and used to reduce the tax load for Americans from top to bottom. Now is the time for the elected representatives of the people to wake up to the fact that Americans at home should be considered when material aid is being handed out. Some of us are wondering how much nl tin- money is wasted. Are the United Nations, NATO, and all of the other American agencies anywhere in the world a factor in winning or losing American national elections with the use of foreign Elid? JosErn H. Boucher 30 Zeller Street Roslindale 31. Massachusetts CRITICIZES FOREIGN AID To thc Tablet: I wrote Senator Harry F. Byrd in protest against the large foreign aid program. In answer he said that he has consistently voted against foreign aid for years, and that on his last trip to Europe he discovered we had given SI00 million to Denmark, which enabled her to pay off her debt, and $200 million to England to reduce taxes. He said, "This is just an example of the way these funds have heen wasted." He added that he will vigorously oppose the recommendation of continued foreign aid over a ten- year period. It is evident that money is given, even without senators knowing of it. The Hoover Report says our national debt is $500 billion instead of $300 billion. Our interest on the debt is $19 million a day. We are also paying reparations to Israel, which Germany is supposed to he paying. Mrs. Cleo E. Scheer 2600 Hampshire Road Cleveland Heights, Ohio EDUCATION MEET MISSED BIG ITEM To the San Diego Union: In the White House Conference on education, a list of 12 items was presented where change, improvement, or increased support was needed. In studying these items. I was impresed most by the important thing omitted. We brag of our nation founded on the belief in God and having tlie motto, "In Cod We Trust." Yet, in our school system, we do not teach this fundamental truth of our existence and destiny. In many schools such teaching is officially prohibited. So we find the majority ol the present and rising generation ignorant of the true cause and purpose of man's existence here on this earth. If our nation is founded on this basic truth — "God Is" — is there any reason why this same truth should not be tin- basic and universal foundation for the training and education of even child and adult in our educational system, from kindergarten to university? Piiuiv II. Smith 921 West ('base Avenue El Cajon, California FINALLY! To tlie Kansas City Slur: Bravo! Finally someone with nerve has said that the VA benefit program needs fumigating. 1 was glad to read that the President's commission on veterans' benefits has recommended vast changes to bring realism into the program. I believe illusions should only go to those who need them. I believe that all VA payments for nonservice-connected - Forum News, September, 1956 Page 61
