Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower October 14, 1890 - March 28, 1969 Those that refuse to remember history .....are doomed to repeat it This page is a tribute to a great American President. In these trying times of war mongering and fear, America needs heros. As a nation we need to recognize our past, and accept our reponsibility to God and civilization to create a peaceful world of prosperity and safety for all people of our planet, as well as our children’s children’s chi;ldren. I believe Ike spoke to us in the future. I invite you to listen to his farewell speech,, made from the White House on January 17. 1961., and decide for yourself. Ultimately what America is and becomes is up to each of us. For without an informed and involved citizenry, the powers of greed and empire will doom us to the ash heap of history. Each of us is actively purchasing our destiny. Vote, and consume responsibly, it’s the American thing to do.
