ADYEKTISEMF.XT) \ This Vital public service message is reprinted from the Bompano Beach, Florida SUN-SENTINEL, Joly 24, 1964. MR. PRESIDENT, Just Where Are We Headed? • i JACK HORD, Sun-Sentinel Man (A young American boy watching a l cal convention for the first time in his father questions concerning the opera tory of this country. The concern of tl for his country led his father, Jack Ho editor of The Sun-Sentinel, to write thi voking story in letter form.to -the Pr United States.) aging Editor tational politi- life asjeed his ions and his- iis young boy rd, managing s thought-pro- ssident of the Dear Mr. President: I have a question, Mr. President, that takes more of a man than I to answer. You see, Mr. Presidant, I have a son, an avid reader of history and current events and in his pursuit to learn about this great country of ours he has become confused..' He has been -brought up in the tradition of God first,'[ country second and family third; he has been taught the stars and stripes is a symbol of freedom; that the Fourth of July is to toe celebrated, not tolerated; that just because goose bumps jump put all over his body when the National Anthem'is played is no indication he's a "square" or "some kind of a nut"; that we are a strong, free nation, a nation where the majority rules; that we are a republic of free enterprise where a man or woman, regardless of race, color or creed., can rise as high as the heavens if he has the ambition and if he is willing to make the necessary sacrifices; he has been taught that freedom and equality are earned, not legislated or handed out on a silver platter. HE HAS BEEN TOLD of the hundreds of thousands of young Americans who have given their lives on Moody battlefields across the globe so that he might enjoy his freedom and that Someday, when it is needed, he, too, must be ready to answer the call of his country. The heritage of Americanism runs deep in this bey, Mr. President He takes pride in recalling the wintar at Valley Forge; the courage cf Patriots at the Battle of New Orleans; the charge of Teddy Roosevelt up San Juan Hill; the storming of the trenches in France; the heroic defenders of Bastogne; the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima; and the gallant stand at Pusan in Korea. By modern standards, I guess this son of mine and myself would be labled extremists—he loves his country and his flag. And next to God, there's no man like Uncle Sam. But now, Mr. President, the boy can no longer accept this fantasy called patriotism. The more he reads, researches and studies, the more confused he becomes. • • • THE QUESTION THAT HAS HIM STYMIED, Mr. President, is, "What does the United States of America stand for now and where is it headed?" I cannot answer that question in all fairness to the boy, Mr. President. Am I to tell him' we have become a country, 'where • minority groups make the decisions at the expense of the majority? • - ' , Am I to tell him we have become a nation forced to accept the dictates of mob violence? Am I to tell him that chains have bound the free enter- # prise system and that a man can no longer operate his 'property, his -business as,he thinks best without-government intervention? Am I to tell him "protector of our enemies" is rapidly replacing "land of the free, home of the brave," as our national slogan? . ' • • • RECALLING PAST ADMINISTRATIONS' deeds at the Republican National Convention sent the boy scurrying to his books to attempt to find for himself questions and charges made for and against the past 25 years of Republican and Democrat administrations. " History shows, Mr. President, that during .the years of Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwighl Eisenhower, this country won the wars but completely capitulated at the peace tables. • Then along came John F. Kennedy, a dynamic young man who was going to get this country moving .again, make It strong, the last bastion of democracy. His words were strong, Mr. > President, but he, like his predecessors, carried a weak stick.' Are you going to follow their examples, Mr. President?. I can't speak for you and my son wants to know. We are a strong and mighty nation, our representatives in Congress tell us. We are unmatched in weapons, our executive branch shouts. We are a' God fearing nation, honored by laws and traditions of our ancestors, the historians write. Then, if this is true Mr. President,, explain to my son why we gave away eastern Europe to the Communist at the Yalta conference under Mr. Roosevelt; explain to him why we fought a halfway war in Korea under -Mr. Truman; why we coddled the Red Chinese, allowing them to violate all agreements while we stood helplessly claiming "foul" and yet" did nothing while young American men were " slaughtered, dying not knowing what they were fighting for or why they .were fighting : • • • HOW CAN I EXPLAIN MR. EISENHOWER turning a •deaf ear on pleas for help from the freedom fighters of Hungary.during the height of their revolt? Eisenhower, my son 'has read, was a great leader of World War II and -some historians even thought a great president. • . ' But explain to my son, Mr. President, how it is that onr sworn enemies, the Communist, made more headway and advances during the "golden era" of Eisenhower's eight years than anytime since the Bolshevist revolution in their campaign for world domination. Attempt to reason with this boy„ Mr. President, how the State Department allowed Communist to gain high positions in the foreign diplomacy field. .Ifs in ths history books, Mr. President, but it dosen't explain why. Tell this young American why, Mr. President, that after the Federal Bureau of Investigation had pinpointed men of high rank in our government who were Communists or had Communist affiliations, that nothing was done to remove these cancers imbeded in the working mechanism of a free country. • • • , AND EXPLAIN TO THIS BOY that when these con- spiritors were arrested they were eventually freed by decisions handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court. This is another confusing issue, Mr. President,, the Supreme Court. Since this country was founded, the historians relate, the high court has influenced the branches of government with decisions that aided, not hindered independence and respect for human rights and liberties. But the sands of time have shifted. And with the shift.the Constitution of this country has become merely a scrap of paper, used to twist and squeeze from ink dried long ago, interpretations that are. not to' be found in thos3 finely written words. And since 1954 when Earl Warren was appointed chief justice of this hallowed court, the record indicates a trend towards anti-God, pro-Communist favoritism as a result of the courts decisions. Mr. Warren, particularly has supported the Communist cause in nearly all cases appealed to the majestic com L Yet, this country has no recourse to correct what seemingly appears to be a deficiency in oar form of representative government. • • • BUT THINGS WERE GOING TO BE better when Mr. Kennedy became president, my son had read. But did they, Mr. President? We continued to help our sworn enemies who promised to bury us. We sold them wheat and strategic materials, built power plants behind the Iron Curtain, sold them jet fighters. . Why, Mr. President, in the past 20 years, you couldn't tell a Democrat president from a Republican president. And Mr. Kennedy, as likeable as he was, made enemies by making possible more freedom for the minorities and less freedom for the majority. He alienated business; the backbone of this free enterprise form' of government. And p!ease explain to this boy^ Mr. President, that at a time w!ien bur country needed more courage and less profile, we allowed the Berlin Wall to be built; that we permitted 1,400 young Cuban patriots to go ashore at the Bay of Pigs, one eye on.the enemy and one eye scanning the skies for promised air support that never came? And tell this young patriot why our State Department financed the Castro revolution in Cuba when as early as 1948 U.S. officials knew he was a Communist when he led the Red-inspired revolt in Bogota, Columbia. • • • ' THESE ARE THINGS I CAN'T EXPLAIN to my son, Mr. President. I trust that you may have the answers. History records the progress we have made in science, medicine, engineering and the professional arts, but it seems that in government, we have switched from the basic concepts'this country was founded upon. And frankly Mr. President, I think that at this moment, the mafority of 190 million Americans would rather "fight than switch" to Communism. •My son wants to know what he can do for his country, ' Mr. President. There was a time when I could tell him but now I cannot. • • • THE ONLY ADVICE I CAN GIVE HIM is simple and to the point: "Pray, my son. Pray that In some way, some manner, some miracle, our nation can be restored to what it once was—a nation of strong, free, independent, self sustaining- people that cannot and will not perish from this earth." • Sincerely, Jack Hord This editorial has been reprinted in the public interest... in the belief that the questions posed by Mr. Jack Hord are those which Americans should expect both Presidential Candidates to answer before Novembers.
