As long as I am into Halloween images, and referencing my freak show shot of the Fantasia Party, "Tiptoe through the Dimwits." This is a tribute to the last Republican president who: ended World War II, started no war (except for his Vice-President on the day he went to the hospital with a heart attack); restored the economy; paid the WWII debt; proclaimed himself the peace president, sent the returning GIs to college; rescued Europe with the Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP); started the interstate highway infrastructure (sponsored and signed the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956; sponsored and signed the Civil Rights Bill of 1957; balanced the budget, three times; ended the Korean War; he kept the country at peace.
His top tax rate was 91% while Romney crowed about his 15%. Eisenhower loathed McCarthy. Spoke to the Congress of the United Sates: American working men and women needed the protection of law in order to guarantee them the free exercise of their fight to organize into unions and to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing. The US labor and industrial might was at its peak. What part of this Republican Party are the current slate of Koch shills? The date was the 1950s and the US was a creditor nation… unlike today. Thanks righties!
It’s taken me years to understand why my parents were Republicans in the day. It’s obvious now that being an engineer and a legal secretary that they would be smart enough to see through Republican disguises today.
