Harry S. Truman 1947

"Republica­­­­­­­ns approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke.

They stand four-squar­­­­­­­e for the American home--but not for housing.

They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restrictin­­­­­­­g labor's rights.

They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better.

They endorse educationa­­­­­­­l opportunit­­­­­­­y for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools.

They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them.

They consider electrical power a great blessing--­­­­­­­but only when the private power companies get their rake-off.

They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people.

And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it."

-- Harry S. Truman 1947
