when I was age 2-10, and he was a Republican ~
believe it or not, THIS was the viewpoint of the usual
conservatives in those days:
Dwight David Eisenhower
October 14, 1890–March 28, 1969
U.S.President Jan 20, 1953–Jan 20, 1961
"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security,
unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs,
you would not hear of that party again in our political history.
There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you
can do these things.
Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an
occasional politician or businessman from other areas.
Their number is negligible, and they are stupid."
Okay. All I have to say now is:
WTF has happened to us?!?!
