Quote of the Day Part Two

Urelated to the Quote of the Day Part I, but too good to pass up.

As found by David Sirota, who comments: "President Bush, a Texas oil millionaire, is trying to
abolish social security as we know it, starve unemployment programs, weaken labor laws, and gut rural/farm programs."

Here is the quote:

"This is what I mean by my constant insistence upon "moderation" in government. 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."

Republican President Dwight Eisenhower, 1954
