Subject: re: 3,000 Miles From Denali, Ohio Fumes Over Renaming of Mount McKinley
To the Editor:
In restoring Denali's good name, president Obama prompts us to consider what is president McKinley's legacy. William McKinley was the original president of the One Percent. Had he--and our first millionaires' congress--implemented his whole program, Organized Labor in America would have been crushed. The few who owned the rail, oil, banking and telegraph trusts in this country would have owned us all. Had the presidency not been handed to Teddy Roosevelt by McKinley's assassin, we might have had a Workers' Revolution here in the U.S. before the Russians had theirs.
So let's not forget McKinley has we rename Denali. Let us take this opportunity to remember that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
