1900's SENATOR ROBERT LAFOLLETTE POPULIST PHOTO
1900's SENATOR ROBERT LAFOLLETTE POPULIST PHOTO
This photograph shows the famous Progressive US Senator Robert LaFollette, date unknown.

Here's an interesting and timeless quote from Lafollete:

"The purpose of this ridiculous campaign is to throw the country into a state of sheer terror, to change public opinion, to stifle criticism, and suppress discussion. People are being unlawfully arrested, thrown into jail, held incommunicado for days, only to be eventually discharged without ever having been taken into court, because they have committed no crime. But more than this, if every preparation for war can be made the excuse for destroying free speech and a free press and the right of the people to assemble together for peaceful discussion, then we may well despair of ever again finding ourselves for a long period in a state of peace. The destruction of rights now occurring will be pointed to then as precedents for a still further invasion of the rights of the citizen."
