Small Businessmen Form New Organization
Pledged to Elect Republican Administration
Time was when small business had no “voice.”
There was no need. Free Enterprise allowed the
creative ingenuity of the American businessman
But in recent years, political encroachments have

majority of our labor. What more representative
voice could America have?
So listen to the voice of small business. It speaks
