Being liberal and conservative
Jerry Kurtyka recently used this quote from President Eisenhower in a comment:
“In all those things which deal with people, be liberal, be human. In all those things which deal with people’s money, or their economy, or their form of government, be conservative.”
Thank you Mr. Kurtyka.
We deserve better

My, how the GOP has changed!! The current Republican party does not support any of those things.
“Down the long lane of the history yet to be written America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.
Such a confederation must be one of equals. The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength. That table, though scarred by many past frustrations, cannot be abandoned for the certain agony of the battlefield.
Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose differences, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose. Because this need is so sharp and apparent I confess that I lay down my official responsibilities in this field with a definite sense of disappointment. As one who has witnessed the horror and the lingering sadness of war — as one who knows that another war could utterly destroy this civilization which has been so slowly and painfully built over thousands of years — I wish I could say tonight that a lasting peace is in sight.”

Compare this to the Stormy Daniels screeds and free abortions for everyone over 8 years old and no borders and no electoral college….
Compare Ike’s words and behavior to the twitter rants of a narcissistic madman and bully who lies almost every time he opens his mouth.
Eisenhower also warned against the military industrial complex. Now we have to worry about the broader industrial complex which owns congress.
