not wish to be represented abroad in such manner To preserve internal order and freedom from encroachment is the first purpose of government The finances of the government are in sound condition We cannot fall to recognize the obligations of ths government in support of public welfare but We must coincidentally bear in mind the burden of taxes and strive to find relief thru some tax reduction
