DO NOT VOTE FOR BLIND LEADERSHIP Mr. Voter, farmers, friends and fellow citizens unless the farmers of Iowa and the farmers of America do something about it, we are in the calm before before the storm. Never before have we had so many sign posts warning us of disaster ahead as we have now. The eight Congressmen from this great State of Iowa are called the most reactionary in the nation The reactionaries, by betraying the people and supporting the puppet pressure groups and the fat, sleek lobbyists have put a powder keg under the American people. Republican senators and congressmen combined and conspired to defeat President Truman's postwar reconversion program by parliamentary filibustering such as the GI Housing Bill and Price Control, a fair sample of reactionary Republican tactics is bloc voting against OPA. We tried running this country under Hoover without any controls with disastrous consequences. Capital must be protected against itself, human nature being what it is; the Federal Government must be the super umpire to act in defense of the American people. Mr. Voter, if not the Federal Government, what agency would you name? This responsibility must be vested in our Federal Government, The Democratic Party is standing on its record in this campaign, a record that surpasses all other records in political history. We as a "nation are the greatest political leaders in the world and the world looks to us for leadership, We are the only party that read Democracy, Freedom, and the Dignity of Man with a new concept. We chartered new courses of human conduct fov other nations. We have established a record of research and efficiency that has turned ail eyes on the U. S. We have charted new courses in the interests of human rights versus property rights. We have established new safeguards for capital to protect capital against itself since greed is the oldest creed of the human race. A controlled economy is the answer. We claim credit for saving agriculture as the Republicans voted 75% against all farm measures for the last 25 years. We changed the U. S. from a vacuum of gloom and despair, to hope, courage, and * ,' • " '. • security. We have Established a more equitable dis- . tribution of the national income. In 1932 our national income for agriculture was around 5 billion a year. In 1945 it reached 24 billion. Agriculture reached a standard of prosperity and security in Iowa never known before. Republicans opposed all farm relief measures. George A. Wilson, Bourke Hickenloopejr and Gov. Blue invariably voted against the people and lined up with the Utilities. Major Geo. Olmsted. and Ding, both Republicans, denounced Governor Robert M. Blue as not fit to be governor of this state. ' The Democrats offer Frank Miles as a candidate who will put this State of Iowa back on the map and establish representative government. Our statesmen take a positive course in dealing with the declarations and decisions of public policy for all the people as opposed to special party privileges for the few and exploitation of the many. The Democratic party saved this country in 1932 and again with sound strategy and leadership from 1941 to 1945; the "bureaucrats" drafted every blue print, every tank, every ship, every piece of military equipment in Washington, D. C. for the prosecution of the global war number 2. This government cannot be run without boards and bureaus. Our party is replete with trained statesmen and officers who take a positive course for the common good, Yes, we made some mistakes but our batting average was high and we can still vote, have free press, and if you like you can call the president some pet names. We are proud of our State candidates and our platform, Frank Miles measures, up as a. first class statesman and can take his place with the big men of the nation, The Republican Party is the only organization who wants to gp back, They put this state baefc 25 years politically, Gov, Blue scuttled the Federal Housing bill in this state, helped to Wow the Ii4 off OPA, helped to light AAA, RjgA, TVA, and .was friendly to the National Manufacturers A^sQciatJon, Mr. Voter, the Republicans have taHen B static or negative course in this state for the past 8 yeass, Elect Candidate, Frank Miles, with his state office*.candidates and movp forward.
