HUBBARD HARDWARE i Phone 491 DIA'THKVII.I.E'S ONLY HOME OWNKU I.DMREK CO HOWDY, MISTER .... IUU -lre an average citizen. You make your living and support your family by Kard work. You try to save a little money. You wish you could make more. At tlie same time you wish tlie cost of living and taxes wore not so high, nnd they didn't keep on rising. 1 la ve heard some folks say that if the Government furnished the necessities the cost of living would • be a heap less. They have mentioned siich things as coal, clothing, food, furniture, houses, medical care — and electric service. ^"U have lived long enough to know in the grown-up world of men and women there is no Santa Glaus and no Easter Rabbit. One way or another, you pay for everything you get. IUU are told by Government ownership promoters that T.V.A. electric rates are lower than the fates of business managed electric companies. They lead you to think this is due to belter management and freedom from price gouging. But you're not told that the T.V.A, and city-owned electric plants pay only a fraction of the taxes business managed enterprises pay, and that they don't pay any federal or state income tax. »UU know somebody has to pay the taxes — all the taxes. When a governmental agency or group takes over a business-managed electric company it destroy; a tax paying enterprise. This means the tax burden is made heavier, for the remaining taxpayers . . . including yourself. IUU may be interested to know that our Company pays out in taxes about 19 cents of every dollar it takes in. You could buy electric service, at lower rates from us than from Government power systems if we were allowed to operate on the same terms — with the special concessions and tax freedom — they enjoy, . *UU and other citizens raise your own taxes by encouraging Government ownership. And you undermine the American system of free enterprise too. That system has given ordinary shirt-sleeve Americans greater opportunity to' "get ahead" and "be somebody" than the people have in any other nation. That system out young men and women are giving their lives to protect. It's worth more to you and your kids than all the rosy socialistic schemes ever invented.
