ofNebraska For VicePresident J W KERN of IndIanaI A political machine is a combij nation of politicians gether for their own personal in terests It is established and operated for individual advance ment and not for paity welfare nor the public good It derives its power through schemes com binations and midnight plots that deceive the great bulk of people until its hideous and iniquitous power approaches despotism In America in our own free coun try in county State and nation such machines have rarely lived to reach the age to sericusly en danger the liberty and progress of the people In every county in every State in both of the great political parties there are a sufficient number of patriotic men to strike the death dealing blow at the proper time This can onMbe done by the ballot either in party counsel or in open political battle No one can de fend a political machine because we all believe in an equal show ing No one can endorse such aj combination because it rides v the popular demand of a political party endanging its welfare and crippling its power for public good The machine is not wanted by the great bulk of either of the political parties but it forms without their knowledge or con sent steals its way into theirl existFenceL voters feel its stifling effects I There is no public mission for a I apolitical machine to fill no placei in either c political party selfish purposes and no reason why the American people should endanger their liberties by further endorsing the the most powerj ful Federal machine hasI ever played politics on the scan
