Nothing more needs to be said!

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.
Dwight David Eisenhower

Insightful - from a man who would know.

Guns to butter is the greatest garbage ever uttered.

If we did not use tax collections to provide for national security and police we could take that money and help the poor.


First of all, at what point does the lack of effectiveness of programs to help the poor become acknoledged?

Second, the illogic expressed implies that money not spent on guns could never be returned to payers?

Third, guns (defense) is necessary.

Truly some of the most silly Liberal pablum ever uttered.

President Eisenhower, victorious WWII commander, uttered some of the most silly liberal pablum ever!? Wow. It would be hard to get to the right of that view.

The more that a society spends on guns leaves that much less for butter. Just ask the North Koreans.
