We favor maintenance of the national credit by a federal budget annually balanced on the basis of accurate executive estimates within revenues, raised by a system of taxation levied on the principle of ability to pay.
We advocate a sound currency to be preserved at all hazards and an international monetary conference called on the invitation of our government to consider the rehabilitation of silver and related questions.
We advocate unemployment and old-age insurance under state laws.
(We Advocate) The removal of government from all fields of private enterprise except where necessary to develop public works and natural resources in the common interest.
We condemn the open and covert resistance of administrative officials to every effort made by Congressional Committees to curtail the extravagant expenditures of the Government and to revoke improvident subsidies granted to favorite interests
Gee, that would almost wipe out most of our federal budget and just think of all the unemployment for all of those bureaucrats! (Maybe they could go to work at airport security instead!)
