Title

How Stalin Hopes We Will Destroy America

Description

Giveaway comic book about the dangers of inflation. Text argues that Communists want America to spend itself into destruction by printing more money.  Advocates for the U.S. Government to operate on a "pay-as-you-go" basis. Encourages citizens to write their congressmen to tell them to cut unnecessary expenses.

From p. 16 (back cover) After her husband writes a letter to their congressman, a wife says, "I'm a voter, too! I can write our congressman, too, can't I?"

Her father-in-law replies, "Of course, every citizen can...and should! The way to prevent higher prices and keep our money strong -- is to cut unneccsary government expenses -- and 'pay as we go'!"

Husband: "Together we can lick inflation -- and Communism!"
Wife: "It's important to me...and to you!"
Father-in-law: "And it's up to all of us."
