About Me

Member since 3/21/2002. I have been interested in politics since the early 70's. I registered to vote by riding my bicycle to the nearest registration site while still in high school. The first time I voted was with my parents. By the general election, I was in college and voted absentee. During the Watergate hearing I was in college and watched the hearings. I have only voted for a Republican once. And it was due to the endorsement of the local union's political group. It was for the position of the county sheriff. I have never missed voting in an election. Both primary and general. I have voted in at least 69 elections. Political Science and History was my focus in college. I became more involved in politics in 1987 with the mayor's campaign helping at headquarters. It was at this time that I became a precinct committee person. In a couple of years I was involved in setting up the database for a congressional campaign due to Quayle becoming VP and Dan Coats was appointed as Quayle's replacement. I have attended many Democratic State Conventions and other Democratic fundraisers and events.

Journal Archives

Found this about a 1935 Hoover letter while doing family tree.

It was published in the The Telegraph-Herald and Times-Journal (Dubuque, Iowa) on 24 March 1935. Under the title "Ex-President's Letter Makes Tongues Wage"

It consists of 938 words in 37 paragraphs.

First, Hoover served as President (March 4, 1929 March 4, 1933).

What is happening now with TFG seems reminiscence of that time period.

The letter by Hoover was a criticism of Roosevelt's New Deal.

Excerpts (Since it is not over 95 years old I don't believe I can include the whole article.)
The thread of Mr. Hoover's platform, running throughout his letter, is that the New Deal is "un-American" and that individual liberty has been restrained to an unconstitutional degree by its operation.

The solution of the many problems now confronting the government, he said. rests first upon "orderly individual liberty and responsible constitutional government as opposed to un-American regimentation and bureaucratic domination." This followed a general indictment of Roosevelt policies. which he said had failed.

Still Party Head
Mr. Hoover still is titular leader of the party and will be until his successor is named by the republican national convention next year. His letter on current issues way interpreted today as an effort to make that leadership a little more than merely titular.

Judging from the tone of the republican comment in congress, that effort-- if such it was--was not conspicuously successful.

The following unless in quotes are rewritten from article.
One Republican senator stated, "I have no comment to make upon anything that gentleman might have to say."

Another Republican senator that had supported Hoover twice said, "I feel sorry for him. He once tasted power and failed. He dreams of coming back. It is only a dream."

Comments by Democrats
They generally agreed they would like nothing better than to see another Roosevelt-Hoover contest in 36.

"I want to talk about live subjects." he said, "not dead ones."

"Mr. Hoover certainly ought to know a sink when he sees one. for he led us into one."
