you if i were a Rich Man i should conduct this Issue like the politician in he counted the number of bought As Many pairs of sending one to each with instructions that if the election went Well and As they would get the other now lets get Down to the More serious Side of the Levy i have been doing a lot of listening and think ing and i am going into the Issue quite and pre sent a lot of facts and when this country was founded people came Here for Many to get away from oppressive to have religious to find a new Way of life in which personal initiative and hard work would bring great accomplishments in our private Enterprise great strides were made and we emerged one of the greatest Powers on we have a National Constitution and a Bill of rights that Are second to none in the entire to keep our nation Strong we must abide very resource fully to every condition of those two great to deviate in any direction from their guidelines Only invites major our Constitution and Bill of rights were drawn up and signed by very intelligent misinterpretation and wilful misinterpretation of our Constitution and Bill of rights have led to a gradual de Cay of the once powerful nation we knew some thirty five or forty years we were the envy of the world for honest dealing and great today we have More enemies in the world than today we Are engaged in a great conflict within our this conflict is psychological people in Power and minority groups persist in trying to make you believe what is wrong is if this theory is persecuted far enough and Long you actually accept it As fact although it is still psychology can provide Only a limited amount of on the other it is the most destructive Force in the world next to nuclear War which is Complete psychological warfare is what is known As War in the fourth it is All around you and its devas Tating effect is invisible to the naked Only by Analuz study and deep thinking Are you Able to comprehend what is taking place in your own the roman Empire and great nations of the world have fallen to psychological it has been used in All great major it is being used by Russia and Many Iron curtain countries against the rest of the free and All the minority has to do is convince the majority that wrong is today in our great psychological warfare is being used against the and the people As a whole by our own Federal the states Are using that same Force against the and counties and the the counties against the and the cities against the resulting in a Chain reaction Down the a few examples of psychological warfare at the Federal level Between july 1946 and june our governments elected officials gave away abroad this is billion More than the total assessed valuation of americas 50 largest we cannot buy Friendship in this manner and it was wrong yet it has been accepted by Many As and still it was done without your the United states supreme court has gotten into the habit of rendering supreme court decisions on the trend of the times instead of the constitutional Law of the this is wrong but they want us to accept it As our elected representatives in Washington Are mis appropriating Federal funds to operate seven Hundred Large corporations at the taxpayers this mat Ter involves some 60 billion dollars All Are losing this is wrong but our Public servants want you to think it is personal incentive is private Enterprise is suffering from Competition with their own tax and the country is going farther in debt year after there Are about 3 bankruptcies in this country a one half Are the result of poor business the other half Are the result of too much restriction and control and leaving the business nothing to survive a National debt of three dred fifty with an annual interest debt of fifteen billion is All some Day people Are going to expect to get their Money Back which they loaned our Federal to pay one Man not to Plant his land and another a subsidy above the Market value of his product is All to tax the majority of the people into submission and let the Large Oil companies and foundations off tax free is to cancel millions in taxes of big corporations and railroads is there Are a thousand wrongs being imposed at the Federal level that Are not throttling of our constitutional right at All Levels of government is wrong private Enterprise Freedom of the private property rights Federal monopoly is at the state level we have excessive state Competition to private infringe ment on private property All Are yet you Are expected to believe it is at the county level we also have excessive infringement on private property these same conditions prevail in cities and All Are our country is economically and morally sick from one end to the Many drastic changes Are going to have to be made if we Are going to get Well and save our Economy bankruptcies a year in this country has me concerned and you All should half of these bankruptcies Are directly attributable to too much political control at All government and not enough margin of profit left to according to the september report of the National federation of Independent the annual rate of Job losses by marginal Subr marginal workers has now reached due to the new wage hour Law with the rate of attrition not showing any sign of leveling when mandatory wage hour Laws affect businesses that Are not making that kind of this is the end result loss of i feel our whole country is being systematically indoctrinated to a policy of also rented it pears that we should stick to our fundamental principles of Good government and Good old fashioned educational i feel that resentment shown by school juvenile and a lot of the lawlessness in our Are results of Many people dissatisfied with our sick Many people react in Many different the pressure and harassment is too great for Many of one Bright Side of the picture is that Many would be dropouts from school have become great successes in the business now i want to show you How psychological warfare works in its most destructive form at the state and local the most powerful lobby in Olympia today is their sole interest is not necessarily school and it is the Dollar race for their own lobbying is the influencing of state to gain for minority groups More than their share of any whether it be or whatever is gained is at the expense of i want to give you the breakdown on the Dollar percentage Wise of your tax dollars from the state general for All uses july 1967 to july All two year per one seventeen seven Hundred Slot five seven Hundred seventy eight Public per Twenty million health and mental per ninety nine million one Hundred thousand corrective per fort seven million general per fort five million l7 per Twenty eight million natural resources and per thirty million Revenue collected and returned to cities and per thirty seven million there is something drastically wrong with our so Clety when we have to spend for Edu when we wind up with

loss of personal initiative to a com and other minority groups Are at tempting to enslave the our servants Are doing a Good Job at becoming our to prove another Point in this method of psychological warfare against the school District 21 is trying to get a school Levy of some on february and on the other hand a school Bond is going to be on the ballot at the state level for seventy million this the school lobbying Force is playing both ends against the Middle at the taxpayers also slated for the fall election is a Bond Issue for inst is a sick society with systematically indoctrinated policies of also rented thinking causing us to have the we Are having in our state and country today i sincerely believe it lobbying should be abolished from All government Levels under severe penalty by psychological warfare should Kew de be abolished from All government level under penalty by now to the local school District 21 and my first questions to Sleeper and Ellis How did you manage to

enough funds to give the schools the accreditation rating you Are talking when in tall to you used that Money for a 7 per cent increase in pay to thus cutting the kids out of much of their educational program by using the excuse of a mandatory pay raise granted by the state legislature of 7 per cent for the 19671968 and a 5 per cent increase for the 196 8196 9 year you took away from the and took
