To Oppose and Overthrow Political Wrong

November 5, 2012

To oppose and overthrow political wrong, and corruption the people

“Have a weapon firmer set
And better than the bayonet;
A weapon that comes down as still,
As snow flakes fall upon the sod,
But executes a Freeman’s will,
As lightning does the will of God;
And from its force, nor bolts nor rocks
Can shield them — tis the ballot box.”

Bangor Daily Whig and Courier (Bangor, Maine) Aug 9, 1843

Wisconsin – A Vote for Our Nation

THE MAN OF TOMORROW

There’ll be a strong man tomorrow
Fight out there,
Stormed at by sorrow,
Attacked by despair,
Betrayed by the traitors,
Maligned by the haters,
Abused by the greedy,
But loved by the needy
And cheered by the fair.

By Edgar A. Guest

DEMOCRACY — VISION OF THE AGES

Man’s soul called out from brutish strength;
Not need of help alone held firm the clan,
But mighty need of brotherhood
Turned fighting creature into thinking man.

And age by age a vision grew,
Held fast, though much submerged by strong decree —
A vision of a brotherhood
So great that little men might all be free.

Man’s life was counted willing gift
When valiant souls but hoped their sons might reap
That brotherhood and love from out
Their sacrifice and hard-held vision deep.

That vision did materialize;
The world has seen its torch give heartening glow.
Free men must strive to hold it high
As symbol of the brotherhood we knew.
