President Eisenhower's farewell address to the citizens of the United States, January 1961: "In the counsels 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. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."

So many of our previous Presidents gave similar warnings.

Our U.S. Constitution tells us to throw the bums out.

The only way to do it for the House and Senate to impeach.

Why don't they?

Because they're dominated by Republicans.

Why did the people elect the Republicans?

First of all, I doubt that they did. After reading the report on who owns and creates the software programs that counts the vallot box votes.


If they were elected, it must be because the majority of votes are over aged 40 who lived through the Great Depression and WWII, and believes all that government propaganda.
