ELECTION INFORMATION

 

"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of the Congress [editor adds:vote 'and State Legislatures]. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national [and State] legislature....If the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces." President James Garfield
