Historic Overview

This party nominated candidates in Minnesota during the late 1890s. Democratic People's State Platform, 1896 4th - "We denounce the Republican party of the state for its subservincy [sic] to corporations, rings and trusts and its total disregard of the great producing masses, the middle classes, the common people, farmers, mechanics and laboring men. We hold that these latter classes should especially receive the fair and first consideration of the legislative and executive powers of the state. We pledge the people, if given authority, that corporate and monopolistic selfishness, greed and power shall not control our conduct, and that, while we have no desire to strike down or injure in the slightest degree vested rights, we will see to it that the rights of the common people shall not be trenched upon, but jealously guarded. 8th - "We demand an amendment to the constitution of the United States providing that the election of president, vice-president and United States senators be by the direct vote of the people."
