I stumbled upon a quote today that struck me as particularly apropos with respect to our current state of affairs.
Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace. -Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. general and 34th president (1890-1969)
And this from a military man to boot. So, when and where did the Republicans go wrong?
