“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…Texas oil millionaires
and an occasional politician or business man from other areas.
Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, November 8, 1954
