"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist." - Dwight Eisenhower on Jan 17, 1961.It's interesting. Republicans are constantly self sabotaging in every way that makes it more dangerous by reducing social stability while increasing military spending. They're behaving like the stereotypical 3rd world dictatorships that spend on weapons while leaving people to starve.
Ike is turning in his coffin.
