Have you observed that political
lines seem to be vanishing? All
over the country this movement is
discernible, and it is causing many
of our •'professional" politicians to
"lie awake o' nights."
There is a cause for it. The peo
ple at large have quit thinking by
proxy, and are thinking for them
selves. And fair-minded thought is
fatal to narrow partisan viows.
We do not mean that a thought
fill man can not be loyal to any po
litical party. In fact, it is right
and proper for a man to have his
political preferences, provided he
has given the matter careful, im
partial, unbiased thought, AND KNOWS
But tho strange thing is that the
more a man thinks, if ho is really
honest and unprejudiced, the more
clearly ho soea that there is reason
and justice in the views of his oppo
nents. Indeed, tho man of broad,
unbiased mind will often lind it
dillicult to say just wherein lies
greatest good and least evil, at tho
same time that cocksure bigots are
proclaiming from the housetops that
there is but one truth, and that
their adversaries know it not.
There are public questions of
great moment to be decided. Some
of them all'ect. the interests of the
entire uatiop. The prosperity and
material welfare of eighty million
people hang upon the decisions that
wo make. Should we not rise above
partisan blindness and prejudice in
studying these things out?
Party loyalty is all right, of
course hut loyalty to PRIN
CIPLES is the thing that counts,
alter all.
