The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 70

The Reason Why

The Reason Why.

So great a scandal has the neglect of the Parliamentary franchise become that legal disabilities are likely to be imposed on shirkers. Serve them right. They will enjoy all the benefits of good Government, and be the loudest complainers if things do not please them, but will not perform their political duty as members of the State. They "Don't want to take sides;" but they hypocritically "sit on a rail" and wish both sides success. They are like the lukewarm Laodiceans—they turn people sick As a rule they want to please both sides for fear of making an enemy or losing a customer or Government patronage, and they offend both sides.
