Historical Facts of Interest

A dear friend sent me the following:

1956 Republican Platform:

  • Assistance to low income communities
  • Protect Social Security
  • Provide asylum for refugees
  • Extend minimum wage
  • Improve unemployment benefits
  • Strengthen labor laws so workers can join Unions
  • Equal pay regardless of sex

Obviously we all know the Republican Party has changed, many even say that the party no longer exists. But this was their platform in 1956, (when I was 1 year old).
