“Change in the GOP, Summarized.” By President Eisenhower.

Via on Sep 4, 2011

An old warrior unafraid of war, but aware of its cost.

Here’s the text of the full speech.

Another great quote:

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
