A LIBERAL PLATFORM
(Concluded from page 1)
VTe recognize the duty of the govern
ment to provide employment at all times
at standard wages for all citizens able
and willing to work.
We demand government old age pen
sions; and accident and health insurance.
Many oi the injustices which the farm
M. is made to suffer will be remedied by
the enactment into law of the measures
covered in the section of our platform
dealing with trusts and ehieation. In ad-,
dition to; public terminal warehouses,
grain elevators, stockyards and princi
pal abattoirs, we demand such measures
of relief as:
a A system of national farm loans on
terms that will encourage and make pos
sible the actual purchase .of farms and
tend to reduce tenantry;
b State insurance of crops against
loss by storm and drought;
c Co-operative marketing under the
direction of national, state and muncipal
machinery, but locally administered and j
so constituted as to decrease waste, in
sure a market for all products and les
sen cost of handling.
We believe that taxation on incomes
and inheritances should be used not only
to provide revenue for the government,
but-in order to bring about the gradual
disappearance of vast fortunes which,
on account of their economic and politi
cal power, are a menace to democracy.
We therefore demand
a A progressive tax on all incomes
b A progressive tax on inheritances
We believe that land and natural re
sources should not be held out of use
fpr monopoly and -speculation, and we
demand that the government through
taxation shall force idle land into pro
ductive use and open our unused natural
resources to industry.
And we propose the gradual abolition
of taxes upon corporations and excess
profits as rapidly as circumstances per-
Today the standard of public education
is deplorably low. Our teachers are un
derpaid and many of them are imcompe
tent. School-houses are closed in rural
districts and overcrowded in the cities,
There is at present a tfenial of a decent-
education to hundreds of thousands
of American children. Every child in
the country is entitled to a good educa
tion. We therefore demand
1. School room for all chldren of
school age, through national subsidy if
2. Compulsory education for all chil
dren either in public or private schools;
3. A national child labor law fixing
the working age at lb years;
4 Higher standards -of teachers thru
We favor the ratification of the Wo
man's Suffrage Amendment; and we de
mand that women shall have equal eco
nomic- and political rights with men.
"7 FREE SPEECH
The right of free speech, free press and
public assembly means the right of any
citizen to express his opinions on social,
poltical or economic questions without
fear of intimidation or punishment.
! Therefore, we demand the immediate
I enforcement "of the rights of free speech,
free press and public assembly, and the
i repeal of all laws enacted during the war
I which sought to limit these rights.
! We further demand the release of pol
t tical, prisoners.
