All of us over the age of forty are familiar with the old saw from the westerns "there’s a new sheriff in town." The hero of countless westerns rides into the lawless town to save the day, and with resonating confidence annouces that now that he’s there, things are about to change for the better because there’s a new sheriff in town.
- "The Democratic administration has greatly lost the confidence of the American people by its complacency to the threat of communism and the leak of vital secrets to Russia through key officials of the Democratic administration. There are enough proved cases to make this point without diluting our criticism with unproved charges.
- Surely these are sufficient reasons to make it clear to the American people that it is time for a change and that a Republican victory is necessary to the security of this country. Surely it is clear that this nation will continue to suffer as long as it is governed by the present ineffective Democratic Administration.
- Yet to displace it with a Republican regime embracing a philosophy that lacks political integrity or intellectual honesty would prove equally disastrous to this nation. The nation sorely needs a Republican victory. But I don’t want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the Four Horsemen of Calumny — Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry and Smear.
- I doubt if the Republican Party could — simply because I don’t believe the American people will uphold any political party that puts political exploitation above national interest".
