Quotes of the Morning: I like Ike

“The Stewardship of our Citizenship is crucial to this hour. The Sacred Trust of Freedom has been purchased with a purpose. From America’s beginning, the Mayflower Compact openly declares that our forefathers were birthing this nation for ‘the advancement of the Christian faith.’ All 50 of our state constitutions acknowledge and give honor to the Lord. The declaration of Independence declares that we are ‘endowed by our Creator, with certain inalienable rights.’ With only 5% of the world's population, God has blessed the United States with nearly 40% of the world's wealth. Now more than ever, we are convinced that God has blessed this nation with resources to share the light of God's Word with a world lost in darkness. America has had a mission to share a living Savior with a dying world.
During the past 50 years, that mission has come under heavy spiritual warfare. Recently, the birth pains have increased in frequency and intensity. The forces of hell understand Biblical prophecy better than most people sitting in the pews on Sunday morning.”

“By the way.. That is a real group, and one that is becoming more and more active in Ohio. They are trying their hardest to make Ohio a Christian state. I especially like that they think they are spreading the word to a ‘dying world’. Saving the environment? That would go against God’s plan for the earth. Be afraid. And now for some reasons why I like Ike (at least in these quotes).”

"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, November 8, 1954

“They might be the few and the stupid, but they are, unfortunately, also running the country.”

"We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Plans are nothing, planning is everything."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Only our individual faith in freedom can keep us free."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"I have only one yardstick by which I test every major problem — and that yardstick is: Is it good for America?"
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"You do not lead by hitting people over the head — that's assault, not leadership."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Don't join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go into your library and read every book."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"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."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Humility must always be the portion of any man who receives acclaim earned in the blood of his followers and the sacrifices of his friends."
-President Dwight D. Eisenhower
