(Editors Note: The author, a writer, editor and speaker against communism, is founder of We The People, anti-commu- nist organization with members in all 50 states.) * * * g; Mr. G.A.H. Jr. asks: "How prae. tical are citizen.action groups like WE, THE PEOPLE!? Why do they ask people to write their Congressman to oppose socialis- tic measures? If the Congress- man is one of the many who are elected by liberal pressure groups, then he is already pledg- ed to vote for the socialist pro. gram--how will writing him do any good? And how else can we have democracy and representa- tive government?" Dear Mr. II. If you write Con- gressman to represent you on a conservative matter but find that he ignores you and consistently votes "liberal," then you may beeome mad enough to throw him out by working to elect one who wilt represent you. There's a difference between democracy and representative government--a thought-provoking slogan is appearing on our mail today that says:"This is a re. blic, not a democracy-Let's keel:. it that way." Have you thought what this means? After our founding fathers had written the Constitution in 1789, they say a lady came up to Ben. jamin Franklin outside Indepen. deee Hall and asked, Well, Dr. Franklin, what kind of govern. ment have you given us?" Tc whieh Franklin replied, "A re- public madam, if you can keep it." Nowhere in the Constitution did our founders ever call this a de- mocracy. In fact, the word was scarcely used before Woodrow Wilson spoke of "making the world safe for democracy." Democracy means rule by the majority. It's like a town hall meeting in which everyone has a voice. But our nation is too large to be run as a democracy, so we have what is called "re- presentative democracy." or a republic. All of our people can- not have a vote on each issue, so we have representatives to vote for us. However, if these representa. fives no longer represent us, the people in their district, but only respond to the will of the pres- sure group leaders (who provide funds and machinery with which to elect them), then we cannot call this "a republic"--it is no longer a representative govern. mont.

EVERINGHAM To save self-government in the U.S., we must save our republic. A Constitutional republic protect:. the rights of minorities as well as the majority. But when minor. ities seize power through pressure groups and take over the rein of the government, then we no longer have either a democracy a republic. A democracy without a consti. tution can become mob-rule. A lynching party is "rule-by-the. majority" as one man (the min. ority) "gets it in the neck" be- cause the majority has so ruled So a lynching partywithout law ,nd 9rder--c:n be flemoeracy in er a republic. The leaders of the Kremlin ca]: the U.S.S.R. a democracy, yet they rle with a single parts' that represents less than 4 per cent of the Russian people. In Red China less than 2 per cent make up the ruling class taat is the Communist Party. And yet they too, claim to be "a People's Democracy." Democracy is a much-abused and misused word. What we want to preserve here is a Constitu tional Republic, where each citi. zen can have a voice at ever) level of government through his representatives. But when people shirk their duty to select and elect good representatives, the)' can lose representative govern ment and return to the tyrann) against which our forefathers re l:elled--taxation without represen. tation. Yes, write your Congressman. Even if it's to learn that he won't listen to you. Then you may do something to get one who will. That's what the socialistic pressure groups did. Among the largest of these is the A.D.A., the Americans for Democratic Action (not Constitutional action,, but democratic action). The A.D. A. puts out a voting record each fall to show their members ho their Representatives and Sena tors voted. If you would like tc see how they rated your Senators and Representative on certain i .i,i "liberal" bills in the hst Con. oil but gress, send me your name *rid address and 20 cents to ,:over cost of mailing, in care of this paper. Uncle Jim from the James DEAR MISTER EDITOR: I see by the papers where our officials in Washington has ap- proved the sale of 14 more items from the nation's stockpile. I ,':as plum astounded to note that one of the items was 156 million pounds of castor oil. Far nigh on to 70 years, man nd boy, I've bad a close per- onal relationship with castor this is T've saw quoted in pounds irstead of bottles or ounces And I can understand how it might be wise to have a few battles of it put back far a emer- gency, but 156 million pounds of it would take care of the the first time SO THIS IS TAX EQUALITY? .... then just a few weeks ago, rite Lennox Independent President gave us some equally situation from the beginning of time till eternity. They can't be but one answer, Mister Edi- tor. Some feller with a heap af influence in the prop$r places, maybe a feller like Billie Sol- Estes, has had the market corn- ered on castor beans and has been greasing the Guvernment fer a good profit. I aim to write n;y Congressman immediate and urge a investigation. I brung this matter up at the country store Saturday night and Ed Dooittle said I might be giiting a little hasty in writing my Congressman. Ed allowed as Tom Dorr [ | i WtHI:W I /XT WA  BROKEN ( AI4 ANKI. ACI[:-biT. i i i u LOW. E AM e4CONR "rA A year ago President Kennedy promised the country he would put before Congress a major tax reform bill, aimed at equal treat- ment of equally situated person. Nothing wrong with that. And how, now that the Guvernment has fell out with DuPont, Gen- eral Motors, Standard Oil and tt,em big fellers, it could be that we was aiming to use castor oil fer lubricating the war machine i case trouble started. But most r,f the fellers didn't agree. Clem Webster said he had noted ever since the war with Spain in 1898 t:at it Pad been a fixed policy of the Guvernment to git mad with them big boys in time 3f peace and ,*hen call on 'em right (mick to git out of a jam when war come. But war or no war, Mister Edi- l,;r, Standard Oil or Jimmy Hof- fa, I'm stockpiling 156 mil- lion pounds of castor oil and : am to let that letter go through to my Congressman. I might send it air mail. And if you think we got castor oil tro,,ble along the Potomac, wait till you see that iece the I) partment of Agriculture ha :vnt to the tomato growers. 1 want to give a little of it to you in what t.bem lawyers call "vet b.att 'err," style. "Ef a tomato is dropped on a hard surface, it. ,.,all be damaged more than if it i.. dropped on foam rubber." Farthermore, states the Depar'- ment of Agirculture, "a tomato dropped two or more times was" found to be more damaged the. if dropped only once. And a to- mato dropped too often beeome. inedible." I wonder, Mister Edi- tor, how much of the taxpayers' n,oney it cost to make them im- portant experiments. About the only good news I saw all week was where some feller has invented a power pole that won't snap when hit by a car going 90 mile a hour. And that ain't perfect. Why not in- vent a pole that'll git out of tht, way? Yours truly, Uncle Jim promising words. He would ask Congress for tax cuts for all. Certainly nothing wrong with that either. Not on the surface any- way. But from the evidence at hand the new tax bill that's been brew- ing for over a year now will prove to be more like a 50-mega. ton bomb than a soothing syrup in its effect on the US taxpayer's hind pocket--big and small--to pay for them. And it also appears that somebody forgot to pass a- long whatever formula the Prei (lent had for "equal treatment of equally-situated persons." This evidence is provided by |be ,';rated policies and objectives (;f te principal architects of the or>oomeig bill They are Stanley S. Sin-roy. Assistant Secretary of the Trr,sury for Tax Policies; W:Ater W. Holler, Chairman of tlc President' Council of Econo- mire Advisors; and Mortimer K. Capliq, Commissioner of Inter- hal Revenue All are long-time advocates of drastic tax reform-- and if they favor tax equality, tleir devotion is strictly rhetori- cal. Here's an example of how they wot;ld achieve "equal treatment of equally situated persons" and of wP, at taxpayers may look for in te new bill when it is pre- sented to Congress in August: They would end tax credits on dividends because they consider this a loophole for the wealthy They would remove exemptions for the aged and the blind be- cause such exemptions "erode the tax base." They would wine out the benefits of joint returns because this constitutes "favor- ed" treatment. They would eli- minate deduetions of state and local taxes a being another loop- bole for the "wealthy" and ff you own and occupy your home they would tax you a portion of its rental value which they con- .,der "investment income." Such is tax equality on the New Frontier. 1 Typing paper ream (500 sheets) newsprint 8Sc at The News office. 47Me .uper Colossal " Values INOUR CIRCUS FOODsALU ltOW t}Wid.e 00|uality ttsm d. - , ............ coa00v,s Watch for handbill in the marl! 1 NO. 1 RED i SPUDS 1[ OIb`. 49 , SKINLESS w0000:N00:Rs 2 79' I ' i.
