Did Dwight D. Eisenhower fortell the future?

Let's hope so.
"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 [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 Dwight D. Eisenhower, 11/8/54
Since Dubya, a Texas oil man, is trying to abolish social security as we know it, starve unemployment programs, weaken labor laws, and decimate rural/farm programs, let's hope Ike was right about the future of the GOP.
