I Like Ike

“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. 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.”

— President Eisenhower

    Maybe we need to bring back the economic flourishing of the 1950s the old-fashioned way: jack up tax rates, to make the Dems happy, and bomb the bejeezus out of every other industrialized nation for the Reps. Everyone wins!
