Transcript i&arMHHKfl ie danger ircles the s it from is aban- lack. The an battle- it is the Forge. It her friends, the free auli-Coinminiist nations, ground to dust, so the road will be clear for a Soviet attack on us. I am not going lo discuss a plan of action for this crisis, lt is more important to understand the nature of the crisis. The contest between the one-world elite and our constitutional government is an irrepressible conflict. The American government cannot operate half under the law and half above it. We cannot take care of any other business, including national defense, until this conlliel is decided. There is no wav bv which foreign nations can trust our public statements if they do not know whether lhe one-world elite or the constitutional officials will have the final word. If the contest continues much longer. the elite have won. We cannot defend our country or help other nations to remain free, if our policies shuttle back and forth from one power center to another. The elite does not have to win. Their purpose is destruction. Every iiioM- they make helps their final victory. They can send our defense appropriations up and down, arbitrarily increase and decrease the number of members of our armed forces, make treaties wilh other nations in which the fine print gives away our position. No matter bow hard the true American resistant may work, our policy will look faltering anil fee ble. Our word will be without value. Wi shall antagonize all our friends and build up llie strength of our mortal enemies. Like lhe House of Usher, lhe dignity and strength of America will deteriorate from invisible hurt. The task of uprooting the elite cannot be- left lo any one person or group. The President alone cannot do it. Cong- r.'ss cannot do it. Neither parly alone can do it. It is a task for all Americans, in Congress, in executive office, in lhe courts, among the press, thc scholars. and the people. Second, while the elite is in power, nothing can be settled by agreements. The American government and political system have always operated under a kind of gentlemen's agreement—thai no one seeking office or in office would do a single thing to weaken the Constitution. Limited government is governmenl bv mutual trust. In a happy family we do not frisk each member to be sure he does not carry hidden guns. In a happy country wc do not have to inves- ti'jeite- each officeholder to be sure he does not carry a deadly weapon with which io slash ai llu- Constitution. We shall never go back to lhal world of mutual trust, until we drive out of office eunl positions of power the mi'll who are not playing llu- game according to tin- rules, tlie men who desire power even when it means the sacrifice of honor. The elite keep no agreements, whether it is the Truman-Forrcstal doctrine, or the Korean ceasefire or the Formosa resolution. They regard agreements as a play lo fool lhe innocent, behind which Ihey can constantly chip away at any program which would strengthen our country. lhe principle burden of removing the elite' falls, I believe, on Congress. Congress must take back the money it has given the elite to consolidate its inllu- cnee. Congress must take back thc loose powers which it has carelessly surrendered. Congress must rescind any legislation which commits us to the collectivisl one-world supergovernment which is so rapidly taking over the world. Congress must strengthen every official and every sector of our government which operates under the Constitution and adheres to the ideals of the founders of our nation. We must plainly tell other countries that if they do not wish to get rid of their own collectivisl elite we are through. I said "through." We cannot give economic aid or military aid to nations governed by a colleetivist elite friendly to communism. We must build American policy on firm agreements wilh nations which have cleaned their own bouse. If the American people will recognize their real enemy and their real danger: if ihey will work together lo destroy every vestige of colleetivist supergovernment which has grown up since 1933, I have no doubt of the outcome. This is the only road to peace. The Communists in Russia are not strong enough or smart enough to destroy lhe free nalions without help of their supporters from within other countries. If we join hands with any nation working to rid itself of a fifth-column elite, we can build a ring of steel about the Soviet empire. When it is shut off from new conquests, from tbe resources il must get from ils secret allies in the free countries, the Soviet governmenl will wither away, and lhe people who live under slavery can once again be- free. If we fight this one battle, we can look forward to a world of peace, of law, of decency, of honest agreements. This world can he built on a firm foundation of government under law, obeying the desires of decent moral people. The American people know we have inherited the most perfect design for a government under law and serving the ideals of harmony and truth. We do not need to seek a new way of life. We need only be true to our own great ideals. Then we shall emerge from the shadows strong and clean and free, and give to the world the glad tidings that .America is true to herself once more. Should Foreign Aid Be Terminated? The following views on our foreign aid program were expressed by Senators William E. Jenner and John J. Sparkman on a recent Farts Forum radio program, and are presented here as a continuation of the opposing viewpoints regarding U. S. foreign policy. Senator Jenner Speaks: i How Americans, every year the Senate and the House go solemnly through the motions of debating foreign aid spending, but the bills are always passed. This year, as usual, I pointed out on the Senate floor that the Executive branch has on band nearly nine billion dollars for foreign aid. which is still unspent. That is enough for three years' work, but Congress was asked to appropriate three and a half billions for the years in the future, and we had to put the government further into the red to do it. Everything is all set for you to keep on paying out these billions every year from now 'til eternilv. 'l on don't have to do a thing if you like taxes. Congress can do nothing without your help. Let us face the essential fact: foreign spending has become a gigantic boondoggle. For example, you are paying the salaries of people who are sent to Yugoslavia to ask Tito to please take some of your money for his roads and his colleges, while our states badly need roads at home and our colleges are searching desperately for means to carry on. Now, what is boondoggling? Is it just a way to waste your money? No, indeed. It would be much better for you if the money was wasted. Boondoggling 18 a very useful thing. It is not useful to the taxpayers; it is not especially useful to the recipients. Boondoggling is useful lo ambitious men in governmenl who want to get hold of tax money and make it into a political machine so they can slay in power. Boondoggling helps the power seekers in two ways. It gives them a full time staff of thousands of people who can carry out their plans. With this staff the political climbers can give your money away, but, you give it only to pressure groups who will repay the gifts with votes and other political favors. Harry Hopkins built a huge WPA staff which handed out your money for folk dailies and counting squirrels and other such projects. But it is a mistake to imagine he did not care win re the money went. Hopkins watched every dollar with the closest attention. He gave your money to mayors and governors who organized the unemployed into pressure groups, which came to TS FORUM NEWS, October, 1955 Page 35
