"So, Mr. President, by way of conclusion, that I hope all American people have seen the flower and fruition of collectivism on the continent of Europe. I think Senators here know something of the story of Russia under Stalin, of Italy under Mussolini, and of Germany under Hitler. There is no necessity for anything of that sort happening here; and if it happens here it is going to be because the Congress of the United States is unwilling to do the simple historic things necessary to give business in America and industry in America and private investment in America a fair opportunity to meet the demands of America. Give them a chance"--Josiah W. Bailey, Speech to the U.S. Senate, December 20, 1937.
