Dwight D. Eisenhower Quote

“Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels -- men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, we may never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.”

And yet, less than 50 years later the man currently holding the office brings us that exact confusion... very sad.

Well said (to Anonymous in Reston)

The Republicans of today would do well to listen to this great American general and stateman instead of the paranoid rhetoric of the war profiteer's puppet!

John-Douglas, Nassau

Right on, Reston!

"dare" or "dared"? "we may never" or "may we never"?

Today in America, dissenters are treated as terrorists and seditionists thanks to the Corporate elitists that now control the International corporations that run and control what we believe to be The United states and Canada and which are International Corporations.... we were warned

As John in Ontario accurately pointed out, there is nothing left of our government or system to be loyal to. We are now officially "inventory".

E Archer, NYC

Revolutionaries and rebels still. ;-)

Mike, Norwalk

The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land enforces an accepted socialist doctrine extremely antithetical to the Constitution. Those not prostrating themselves before the dogma are consider terrorists. The replacing of the current religionists will be by revolutionists and rebels that love freedom, liberty, the recognition of inalienable rights and government of law.
