Transcript Proposals to repeal the Income Tax Amendment come only from right-wing extremists. These people claim to be anti-Communists, but they would destroy the first line of defense eigainst Communist Russia — the financial base of our enormous defense effort. How could our government finance its vast programs of assistance to needy and needed allies against communism all over the world without an income tax?1 AMERICA'S RESPONSIBILITY America has an enormous responsi bility of leadership in the free world community of nations. The conduit ol foreign policy is reserved to the federal government by the Constitution. I he United .Nations is the greatest hope for peace. As the wealthiest nation in the world, we must bear our fair share of the expense of operating this organization. We cannot meet these moral obligations without adequate federal revenues.-1 Communism feeds on poverty and want in the backward areas of the world. We must promote conditions which will discourage the spread of communism. Revenue to meet these needs is essential for our own self-defense. Nearly every step we take to check the spread of communism is dependent upon the income tax for revenue. Without the income tax we could not have had lhe Marshall Plan which saved many Euro- pcein countries from communism. The President's new Asian aid program could not even be considered, were it not for the' income tax. We could not have Fought the war against communism in Korea without an income lax.

Netwo'" eeeulil not have fought W oriel War II againsl the tyranny of fascism without the income tax. We couldn't even have fought the first world war to make the' world safe for democracy without an income tax. When we adopted the Income Tax Amendment in 1913. we paved lhe way for converting our government from a do-nothing government to a do-some- thing government.22 We had to wait twenty years for a great humanitarian statesman Roosevelt who hail the courage lo utilize the enormous laying power which the Income Tax Amendnienl made possible. Roosevelt was a pioneer in using tin government's taxing power to regulate the national economy for the benefit of the- nation. Truman and Eisenhower continued ami developed this new American system] until today the American economy is lhe marvel of the modern world. Abandoning lhe modern, progressive teixiiiL' system which has been developed through years of harsh experience would create chaos and bring upon the nation conditions even worse than those we experienced during the depression.
