Ask them, "Out of what war?" j c.,
Did Mr. Wilson keep us out of the' prt
European War? No. He has himself! cot
In a formal address to congress apok-i ed
en of the European war as "a war ?r
with which we have nothing to do, ai
war whose causes do not touch us."''
How could Mr. Wilson keep us out cjj{
of a war with which we have nothing me
to do and whose causes do not tonch fer
us? lar
Did he keep the rest of the western da;
hemisphere out of the European war? '
No Independent nation on this side wo:
of the world Is Involved In It; the vei
only people In It are the colonies of daEuropean
powers and they had no
voice In their fate, for they were au- Mr
tomatlcally at war when their mother e(j
governments went to war. Who kept Bta
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, out of sei
the European war? Did Mr. Wilson? th<
uia air. ivuson seep us out or war ?<
with Mexico? No. In his term more ?ni
Americans have been killed by Mexl- p?
cans and more American property has ? '
been destroyed by Mexicans than by( inl
Spaniards during the whole Spanish' ph
war. In his term we hare seized a tal
Mexican port and have sent our entire
regular army and mllttla to fight Mexl- T_
cans. In his term Mexican armed II
forces have Invaded American soil and
fonght br.itles against onr people within
our boundaries.
President Taft went through two
Mexican revolutions during his term, . ^
the revolution against Dlax and the to
revolution against Madero. American we
lives were safe In Mexico during that cec
time. No Mexican cities were seized lnt
by Americans and no armed Mexicans Ca
Invaded the United States while Mr. &rt
Taft was In the White House. Yet Mr. sw
Taft never thought of asking the ***
American people to vote for him because
he kept us out of war with
Mexico. He pnt an embargo on arms
so that American weapons would not
be sent across the boundary, and he
refused to Interfere In Mexican affairs.
When he left office Mexicans liked
Americans and Americans were safe
In Mexico. Since he left office Mexicans
hate Americans and Americans
dare not remain In Mexico. Did Mr.
Wilson keep us out of war with Mexico?
Not If words mean'anythlng.
