Yesterday, on Radio Boston, they did a segment on former Republican Senator Margaret Chase Smith and her strong opposition to the hate and fear mongering by Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin. They strongly suggested reading her 1950 speech called, Declaration of Conscience. I just read it a few minutes ago and it is fantastic, truly a representation of what it once meant to be a member of the “party of Lincoln”, which no longer exists in today’s America, unfortunately, IMHO. If you have the opportunity to read it, in light of the fascism being presented these days, I would like to second the recommendation of the Radio Boston show yesterday.
Please share widely!
