Why not recruit good men for office by the poster method? (Middle): They make army life look like a perptual vacation (Bottom): Maybe some genius can do as much for political service.
What are you doing with your Congressman while he's home this summer? (Subtitles): Do you first do nothing at all, as though you and he and the U.S.A. had nothing in common; do you and the neighbors ever try getting acquainted with him and talking over your problems; or do you just let him get his views from your self-appoointed political organizations and bosses; and then kick the daylights out of him next election because he voted contrary to your convictions?
