They too, have made promises to the
people, the same as have party candidates
and were elected because of these pledges.
It is not the "radical reds" who elected

enough laws on our statutes to govern the

ought to elect a congress that will take

would be little more harm in this than in
rambling on and on with compromise laws.
The result is that we get a conglomera

force only half of them.
The election if it means anything, seems
in its broader aspects to indicate a strong
swing toward liberalism. Nothing like it
has been seen since 1912. Issues between
the Republican and Democratic parties
