Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953.
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.
Reducing government deficits Mitt Romney's way would mean less money for health care for the poor and disabled and big cuts to nuts-and-bolts functions such as food inspection, border security and education.
Romney also promises budget increases for the Pentagon, above those sought by some GOP defense hawks, meaning that the rest of the government would have to shrink even more. Nonmilitary programs would incur still larger cuts than those called for in the tightfisted GOP budget that the House passed last month.
The United States currently spends more on its armed forces than the next 14 countries combined. Increasing that historically-large gap even more when record numbers of American children are on food stamps is simply immoral.
In today's politics, Eisenhower wouldn't be a liberal Republican. He'd be a flaming liberal Democrat.
