Thank You, Mr. Eisenhower

I know many have seen President Eisenhower’s exit speech — especially the part where he warns us about the Military-Industrial Complex. I myself have seen this clip many times. However, I decided to post it anyway for those of us who have never seen it before.

This 2 minute clip is so crucial and significant because Mr. Eisenhower echos the future 50 some years ago.  President Eisenhower was aware of something significantly dangerous to our liberty and the disastrous approach to militarism. Can you imagine President Obama or former President Bush being this candid with the American people?
