    Theodore Roosevelt is going to win this one but Eugene Debs would probably be second, I reckon.

    “Nineteenth-century democracy needs no more complete vindication for its existence than the fact that it has kept for the white race the best portions of the new world’s surface.”

    'Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind....Some day we will realize that the prime duty, the inescapable duty of the good citizens of the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world; and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens of the wrong type.''

    "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism.
    "

    "The one absolute certain way to bring this nation to ruin ... would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities."

    "
    Freedom is not a gift which can be enjoyed save by those shown themselves worthy of it."

    All of those were uttered by the utterly racist Theodore Roosevelt! Do you want to elect him as PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?


    Or do you want to re-elect the honest, tolerant, fair, [SIZE=2]incumbent[SIZE=2] Eugene V. Debs?[/SIZE][/SIZE]

    I see the people want a racist president who utterly despises hyphenated Americans, blacks and Moros, and passes little favors for the poor white.

    Vote Debs for TRUE progress, for all, white, black, yellow or other!

    I have no country to fight for; my country is the earth, and I am a citizen of the world.

    -Eugene V. Debs

    Would you vote for a man who does not even consider himself an American? A man who will not pledge allegiance to the great nation he wishes to lead?

    Then vote for "Dog" Debs!

    No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it.

    -Theodore Roosevelt

    Will you vote for a man who has Reality and Rightness in his head? A man who has shown success and not merely empty cries for Revolution?

    Vote Theodore Roosevelt!

    "Ten thousand times has the labor movement stumbled and fallen and bruised itself, and risen again; been seized by the throat and choked and clubbed into insensibility; enjoined by courts, assaulted by thugs, charged by the militia, shot down by regulars, traduced by the press, frowned upon by public opinion, deceived by politicians, threatened by priests, repudiated by renegades, preyed upon by grafters, infested by spies, deserted by cowards, betrayed by traitors, bled by leeches, and sold out by leaders, but notwithstanding all this, and all these, it is today the most vital and potential power this planet has ever known, and its historic mission of emancipating the workers of the world from the thraldom of the ages is as certain of ultimate realization as is the setting of the sun."

    Do you want a leader who knows the problems and tragedy of labor and will side with it, as he has done in his first term?

    Vote for the Great Liberator, Eugene Victor Debs!



    "If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs."

    Do you want a idiot who thinks workers can live on themselves, one who thinks cripplingly low wages are fine and that socialism is evil, and also is a racist.

    Then vote for the Genocider of the Moros, Theodore Roosevelt!

    Do not worry over the charge of treason to your masters, but be concerned about the treason that involves yourselves. Be true to yourself and you cannot be a traitor to any good cause on earth.

    If a man is willing to jump off a cliff, he should be stopped. When he wishes to take his family, his friends, and his nation, he must be stopped. Debs may have good intentions at heart, but good intentions do not run a nation, create jobs, nor feed the hungry!

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

    If a man must have his scars displayed with his trophies, so be it, but at least he must EARN them before lecturing others on their failures.

    Vote for the man who cares, and has his head on tight, Theodore Roosevelt

    Eugene Debs in a dangerous radical, capable of nothing but running the country into the ground! Vote for honest, hard-working, heroic Theodore Roosevelt who's got his head screwed on tight!

    And who also is a racist who deeply hated hyphenated Americans, Blacks and indigenous peoples! Vote Debs or Parker if you don't want a racist in the top office!

    Which Debs would do, and it would be 30% or even lower! Vote the real choice, vote for fairness and tolerantness. Vote for Eugene Debs!

    Debs wouldn't just break Monopolies, he'd break capitalism and more importantly, opportunity!

    He would break the system that prevents people having opportunities! Low paying jobs, employers oppressing the Little Man, that prevents opportunities!

    Debs would replace capitalism with a more fair system, social capitalism, which ensures the Little Man gets his due rights and opportunities!

    He'd reform it to make it fairer and more just! Now we only have opportunity for the rich and powerful. Let's extend it to everyone!
