Republican Platform 1952Submitted by Blue Republic on Mon, 07/09/2012 - 09:11
Guess they won't be running on this - they'd be running against much
of what they and the Dems been doing themselves for the last 40+ years.
Good site BTW, for those into this kind of thing - lots of useful stuff and easy to navigate.
(I can also recommend the Populist Platform of 1892 and the Libertarian Platform of 1972...)
Republican Party Platform of 1952
We maintain that man was not born to be ruled, but that he consented to be governed; and that the reasons that moved him thereto are few and simple. He has voluntarily submitted to government because, only by the establishment of just laws, and the power to enforce those laws, can an orderly life be maintained, full and equal opportunity for all be established, and the blessings of liberty be perpetuated.
We hold that government, and those entrusted with government, should set a high example of honesty, of justice, and unselfish devotion to the public good; that they should labor to maintain tranquillity at home and peace and friendship with all the nations of the earth.
We assert that during the last twenty years, leaders of the Government of the United States under successive Democrat Administrations, and especially under this present Administration, have failed to perform these several basic duties; but, on the contrary, that they have evaded them, flouted them, and by a long succession of vicious acts, so undermined the foundations of our Republic as to threaten its existence.
