The Kingmakers' Republicide
Commenl received from E. F. W. Wilder-
muth of 181-23 Dalny Rd., Jamaica 32, N. Y.,
is thought-provoking. He writes as follows:
"I note that your letterhead recites that F \' I v
FORUM 'dispels apathy.' It is my opinion thai
professional politicians have, in their own selfish interests for ease of self-perpetuation u>
kingmakers, dubbed the apparent lack of public interest in government as "apathy." thereb)
giving the outward semblance of justification
for their existence, and at the same time placing the blame for high taxes and lack of honor
and integrity in government upon the people.
"However, the fact is that we suffer from
"voter frustration1 because the professional politicians have, for all practical purposes, denied
us the righl to vote upon issues anil the right
to select candidates for party nomination to
public office in competitive primary elections
. . . The frustrating result is that on Election
Day we make a choice, those of us who bother
to vote, between the lesser of two evils, by
placing our stamp of approval upon one or the
other of the candidates hand-picked for 06 \<\
kingmakers who themselves were not elected
by the people. What do you think'.''"
