  •  Here's a Republican President re: Texas Money (9+ / 0-)

    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.

    Original passage is from a letter Eisenhower wrote to his brother Edgar on November 8, 1954.

    I hope he's getting this caliber of Texas money.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
