*Francis Barker and Lib Platform of 1840′s
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frances_Dana_Barker_Gage Was involved in the then League and penned this rousing hymn that summarized the then common platforms as directed to Christian libertarians…and see her friend http://www.adinballou.org/ founder of the Hopedale Community of anarchist voluntary socialism…Note: Free Sugffrage was then understood to include what we would call today direct and town hall democracy, and proportional representation…
One hundred years hence, what a change will be made,
In politics, morals, religion and trade.
In statesmen who wrangle or ride on the fence,
Those things will be altered a hundred years hence.
Our laws then will be uncompulsory rules,
Our prisons converted to national schools,
The pleasure of sinning ’tis all a pretense,
And so we will find it, a hundred years hence.
Lying, cheating and fraud will be laid on the shelf,
Men will neither get drunk, nor be bound up in self,
But all live together, good neighbors and friends,
Just as Christian folks ought to, a hundred years hence.
Oppression and war will be heard of no more
Nor the blood of a slave leave his print on our shore,
Conventions will then be a useless expense,
For we’ll all go free suffrage, a hundred years hence
