Wise Words from a Republican President

I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left, and hurl rocks at those in the center.
If men can develop weapons that are so terrifying as to make the thought of global war include almost a sentence for suicide, you would think that man's intelligence and his comprehension...would include also his ability to find a peaceful solution.
If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking is freedom.
You don't lead by hitting people over the head-----that's assault, not leadership.
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.

---President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), 34th US President (1953-1961)Five-star General of the US Army.....and a Republican
