Known as the "last great conservative Republican", Eisenhower gives advice to future generations.

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Dwight D. Eisenhower President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jan 17, 1961

...In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
