Title: The Neutrality Act
Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1941-10-12
Abstract: In this WSM radio broadcast script, Congressman Albert Gore discusses the Neutrality Act and reasons he deems adequate for its repeal. Gore argues that the health of the United States` international trade activity depends upon the business of transoceanic countries, not fellow North American nations. From a militaristic standpoint, the congressional representative believes that control of the seas is imperative to the survival of his country. Thus, Great Britain, America`s "partner in naval control" needs to be protected from the aggressor, and since the Neutrality Act "forbids [American] ships from going to the ports of Great Britain," Gore strongly suggests that the law should be repealed.

Speaker : Albert Gore, Sr., 1907-1998
Date Created: 1942-02-14
Abstract: In an address delivered to the Independent Bankers Association in St. Paul, Minnesota, Representative Albert Gore argues that Allied victory in World War II is only possible if Americans make that goal their "absorbing purpose."

Secondly, the cost of war must be met, and Gore encourages banks across the United States to "participate and cooperate" with the government`s fiscal agenda.
