Summary
T. Coleman Andrews, presidential candidate of the Constitution Party, speaks about states' rights and the liberalism of the two major political parties. He decries oppressive taxation, uncontrolled spending, international entanglements, and integration. He tells the audience that his party offers a choice for independents alienated by both major parties. He criticizes Earl Warren, chief justice of the Supreme Court, for his role in the court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education to end school segregation. He praises Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. and the pay-as-you-go fiscal policy. Andrews outlines ways to save money and cut spending, and condemns the income tax
