That Damn Liberal Dwight David Eisenhower

When people ask me how do I see myself as a Republican, because I do not assimilate to the “EXTREME ASPECTS” of the “Johnny Come Lately” that has infested MY Republican Party;  I point to the legacy examples of Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, etc. and say this is what the proud Republican Party once was and stood for.  The ignorance of the “Extreme Aspects” within the Party today’s simple minded reply usually is, “Well they were really just Liberals and not true Republicans!!”  (What a group of Hatefull Dumb Asses.)

This was the Republican Party before the “Drug Induced Hate Visions of Rush Limbaugh” that became so prevalent, the “Non-Critical Thinking” easily lead population, the “Mindless Religious Fanatics,” and even the ignorance of the “Racially Motivated Tea Party” having the nerve to refer to themselves as “Patriots,” funded by the last remnants of the Racist John Birch Society.  (I would also like to pass on that in the 1960’s members of the John Birch Society referred to themselves as “Minute Men.” You can see, the Tea Party Members are not even original with that identification aspect.)

Today the Republican Party is finding itself funded, and thus for representing the sole entity, by the Corporate Interests that would have the Middle Class divested and devastated back to the economically enslavement of the “Company Town Coal Mines” mentality that was so prevalent in the Coal Regions of this country in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s before the Unions forced the representation of the Worker’s Rights.

Today the Koch Brothers have funded so many political aspects that Governors of States like Wisconsin and Ohio are mandating that Unions be disbanded leaving no voice within those States.  (The Koch Brother’s Father started the John Burch Society so there by the “Me Too” aspects of the Tea Party we see today)

Below I give you one of the better Republican Party’s Presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower’s own words and warnings to the more sane members of the Republican Party:

 

To repeat my own words, Extremism is short lived and will have no longevity. The question is, “How much damage can be done to the United State’s Middle Class Population in the mean time?”

    OMG! It’s like President Eisenhower had a crystal ball.

    My take is that the Republican Party was on very hard times and all the losers who used to call themselves Democrats (and were ignored by the Democrats) hijacked the Republican Party.

    However, this following set of facts has been bothering me for a very long time.

    There was an election coming up in Spain that heavily favored a more “liberal” outcome…..until a railway line was blown up by Islamic extremists and many were killed or badly injured. The election was swayed 180 degrees; it was as if the Spaniards did what the terrorists wanted.

    Remember when Jimmy Carter was President? He had to make some tough decisions on the economy and foreign policy; he had to deal with the Iran Hostage Situation. All of a sudden, Carter was a “bad” President (that the terrorists hated). FOUR MINUTES AFTER Reagan was sworn in, the hostages were released. The prime continued to climb to 24 in the early 80’s. Then Carter’s “hard decisions on the economy” kicked in and all was well. Well, Reagan took the undeserved credit. Then when the economy took another nose dive, the Hollywood clown borrowed, quadrupling our national debt, hoping people didn’t notice that they were living high on credit. People either didn’t notice or didn’t care, because now they think so highly of Reagan they want to put his face on Mount Rushmore.

    And how come no one seems to remember the facts of the Iran-Contra Affair? I seem to see the participants of that treasonous affair commenting on Fox News a lot.

    The right-wing of your party loves the pejorative, RINO- Republican in name only- as a purity filter for their own ‘type.’ What you point out, Engineer, is that your once-Grand Old Party currently has no room for anyone with a moderate political belief system. Lincoln, Taft, and T. Roosevelt, and perhaps even Nixon might be labeled RINO’s by the current wingnuts.

    I’m glad that you speak out, Engineer, against the idiocy that has taken over your party.

    Engineer of Knowledge,
    Thank you for this brilliant piece which exposes exactly how dangerously extremist and far from its roots the current Republican Party has become. They have strayed from the policy of being the cautious and sensible party of small business, tolerance, and equal opportunity to the nightmare party of excessive greed, corporate monopoly, and intolerance. They are now the leading cause of the civil unrest in the U.S. which has manifested itself in the #OCCUPY movements, and, as such, must be destroyed.

  4. Engineer Of Knowledge Says:

    Hello All,
    I want to thank everyone for reading and commenting on this posting. I would ask that the context of this message be propagated as much as we can. It is very important to let people know what is going on and how ONE Republican President felt about where the Party has gone at this time.

    My grandmother is a life-long Republican and my grandfather (a veteran of WWII) is an old school New Dealer who to this day is proud to call himself an Eisenhower Democrat. In 2008 they voted for John McCain (although my grandmother supported Hillary in the primary) but today they have a very large Obama-Biden sign in their front yard and have liberally festooned their car with corresponding bumper stickers. The GOP of today has been so thoroughly hijacked by the nutjobs that Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, Bob Dole, George Bush, Barry Goldwater and – dare I say it – even Ronald Reagan would likely be rejected as RINO’s. When implemented by statesmanlike Republican leaders conservative political ideology has made a valuable contribution to our society. The current crowd has placed us squarely on a path of self-destruction.

      Hello Aaron,
      Please allow me to apologize for respond to this posting so late. (I have been working long hours at work)

      That being said I agree and thank you of your input.

      I have just completed a new posting that I think you will enjoy. Please come back soon.

      Sincerely,
      EoK
