Crouch down •' li<-*; tin- ivmrt'- that feed you." —SAMUEL ADAMS. The First Patriot OF THE "FREE" 200 vears ne;o xviion the "land of the free" meant the land of free men, before 1 mi!- hn;/iii youm; men in government agencies twisted freedom into license- ;;m! m;\de the woi'd "free" synonymous with "hand-out," Samuel Ad;m-.-; |';<ii:U(xl out that to either win or hold freedom meant struggle. 200 yejii's a:;o just to be free seemed worth fighting for. Today everything is simply being labelled, "free." Certain iige-iK'ies and elements of government seem willing to offer free homes, free mcnev. or free anything—in return for votes. This government would have you believe that an agency (the NHA) that has never driven a nail in a single board can procure homes faster and heller than ihe people who build them. Tt would have you believe that 23 million dollars per year in administrative expenses for the NHA will provide lower cost homes; that 400 million dollar- for priming production (the Patman Bill) and 6 billion dollars in listed Wagner-Ellender-Taft Bill expenditures will create low-eost housing. Actually the expenditures of all these sums will not create a single house until someone- in industry starts building. Such expenditures will create more debt, moi-e taxes, higher living costs—and, of course, a few more votes from those who are willing to trade their freedom for the promise- of something ''free." F.
