Google still can not find the DePaul Welcome center.
Here to use the desktop.
Making a new list of condos to see.
Foreclosures and short sales are both difficult to make work for me. They both can take more than two months to close.
I should be able to finish my new list of condos to see today.
Back to copying and pasting.

 Ike on Civil Rights:

"I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces"--- State of the Union message in February 1953 

He declared racial discrimination to be  a national security issue.

Who knows in this modern world where he would have come down on LGBT rights. We can only speculate, I think he would be as always, on the right side of history.

Ike on Social Issues:

He continued the New Deal agencies and expanded Social Security.

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."---April 16, 1953

In his farewell address on January 17, 1961. He warned America about the the military industrial complex and the dangers of massive spending, especially deficit spending. 

Dick Nixon and Ronald Reagan trashed the core values of the old GOP and created the NeoCon party to replace it. Anti Civil Rights, Pro Big Business is not what Ike stood for. Ronald tripled the National Debt during his regime. Both Bushes were puppets of the Military industrial complex. And Willard, Ike had no stomach for his kind or the likes of Rand Paul and Paul Ryan and their austerity.

Nixon and Reagan were aided by the likes of Karl Rove and Lee Atwater the Godfathers of modern GOP propaganda. Thanks to Karl and Lee the GOP has become very adept at winning elections for unqualified candidates who once in power can not administer effectively. Ike would have kicked the Karl Rove to the curb and never looked back. 

Facts are facts and of the astounding 17 TRILLION dollar debt the GOP is responsible for 12 Trillion of it.
