ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the democratic and republican parties in the U.S. The public domain belongs to Democrats and Republicans alike. And I confidently expect that the Democrats in Congress will be the public's guardians of our forests and our parks; our great reclamation programs and our family-sized farms; and of low-cost power for all the people. Likewise, we must vigilantly protect the great programs of social progress which we have initiated in the past 20 years and which may be in for something less than sympathetic treatment. If the Democratic Party is to attract its share of this new interest, it will have to provide an atmosphere in which idealism and dedication to the public good will not be stifled or stultified. For the party out of power, principle and not patronage-must inevitably be the only solvent.
