Quote of the Day

Dwight D. Eisenhower was our beloved leader who masterfully led our Armed Forces to crush the very definition of evil, the Nazis. When the war ended, though both parties pleaded with Ike to head their ticket, he went Republican. He was broadly, sincerely admired in a way that Ronald Reagan couldn't approach. Yet some of Ike's beliefs were not like the D.C. Republicans we see today. For instance:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms in not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense." - Dwight David Eisenhower
