One for Debate

The quote continues:
"Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

 Note the dig at a Texas oil man. Here's the link. Funny how that seems to apply to a current governor from Texas as well?

Also of note: "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 not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children....This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross." ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953

Ah, the old days when Republicans weren't trying to prove that they're better friends with Jesus than their competitors.
