Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - October 21, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky a Peculiar Campaign i meet new York republicans who say that they will not vote1 for Nelson Rockefeller i meet democrats who will not vote fori Averell Harriman. The republicans who will not vote for Rockefeller j object to him because they say he is a new Deal Liberal the democrats who will not vote for Harriman Are annoyed with his treatment of Jim Farley. But there is something More than that and it May become explosive in i960. It is a feeling that parties no longer mean anything and that i candidates Only want to be elected and will say anything and do any j thing with that end in View it is 1 As though All were Well with the world and that there is nothing i to talk about. But actually there is very much to talk about. Senator Barry Gold water is risking his political life in Arizona talking about an important Issue the right to work senator William Knowland is risking a great career in California Over the same Issue. It is something to debate. Certainly when any group develops an excess of Power in a Republic the people sooner or later in anger tear them Down from their exalted positions. That is what happened to the Early Nidus trial its who formed monopolies that happened to the Early Railroad magnates w to gave rebates i that happened to some groups of american Bankers who became predatory and played ducks and Drakes with other Peoples Money sooner or later that will happen to those labor leaders who not Only use economic but political weapons to enrich themselves and fortify their Power. And Barry Goldwater and Wil a Ham Knowland serve As an Advance guard m this particular Battle just As m 1932. Franklin d. Roose j velt fought prohibition and was elected on that Issue. A Republic is a form of govern i ment in which the people express a Choice both As to the policies and personnel of government. That is j not True in a monarchy or an oligarchy or m a dictatorship. It is Only True in a Republic. The Peoples Choice May not always be the right one. As history shows but. At any rate no self appointed satrap rules by Force. There is an Opportunity for rejection. This nature of the Republic general Charles de Gaulle has so amply demonstrated in recent months and particularly in extending the right of Choice to colonial France. The right of Choice presupposes some interest and intelligence some enthusiasm some excitement. Choice must be conscious for Choice involves decision it involves i a positive action when the citizen goes to the polls to express ins right of Choice in an election he expresses a positive act of citizenship based upon an intelligent under i standing of what he is doing. At j any rate that us expected of tile i voter. When however the voter is satisfied with a handshake with a Smirk on television with ghost written gibberish then he sacrifices ins fundamental right. One of the curses of present society is the dislike for Contro i Versy. It will be said of a Man a the is a controversial character a by which is meant that he thinks and that lie says what he thinks and often does what lie thinks is right. Most persons these Days eschew the controversial. They conform and come out where they started blah personalities. We Are not producing Tom paines or Abraham lincolns in american politics triese Days. It is not fashionable. So what we come to in a Campaign such As we Are experiencing in new York state is that two very gentle persons speak of each other j in Dulcet tones. It is not Good a enough to sustain the Republican j Lorn of government. One of the most serious problems in new York is the combination of racketeers and communists in restraint of Trade on the waterfront. This can in time ruin the City of new York it would be an excellent Campaign Point. But with regard to it both candidates Are silent. Another interesting Point that the republicans might pick up to assail the democrats with is the corrupt system of municipal inspection of buildings and the democrats might defend themselves thus far except for vice president Nixon the republicans do not attack and the democrats do not defend. Nobody says anything and nobody cares about anything. They Are running but where to and what for must be a Puzzle to the candidates. The voters do not know either. A copyright 1958.
