NUMBER:62
AUTHOR:Adlai Ewing Stevenson (1900–65)
QUOTATION:Our nation stands at a fork in the political road. In one direction lies a land of slander and scare; the land of sly innuendo, the poison pen, the anonymous phone call and hustling, pushing, shoving; the land of smash and grab and anything to win. This is Nixonland. But I say to you that it is not America.
ATTRIBUTION:ADLAI E. STEVENSON, The New America, ed. Seymour E. Harris, John B. Martin, and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., p. 249 (1971).

  These words were written in 1956 during Stevenson’s second presidential campaign.
SUBJECTS:America
