Resolution On Economic Responsibility

WHEREAS, Statements have been proposed to the Committee on Resolutions on a wide range of economics-oriented issues dealing with such matters as achieving adequate income levels, labor-management controversy, uniformity in social security participation, deficit spending by the Federal Government, and inflation, and

WHEREAS, This Convention in previous years has addressed similar issues and others that have called attention to the desirability and, in some cases, the necessity for economic improvement in the lives of citizens of this country, and

WHEREAS, The number and nature of such statements provide good evidence that contemporary economic conditions are more and more on the mind of the messengers to this Convention both as problems and opportunities, and

WHEREAS, We recognize particularly the dreadful consequences of many current economic ills, and

WHEREAS, The system of free enterprise has been successful and should be kept and refined,

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, That we communicate our concern through every appropriate means to the Congress and the President of the United States to be diligent in an effort to bring spending into a responsible and reasonable relationship to tax revenues so that all citizens may reap the benefits of a wise stewardship of resources, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That the Convention continue to provide positive leadership and Christian encouragement to those efforts designed to bring about a satisfactory economic livelihood among all people.
