Robert Welch, the founder of the John Birch Society, famously described President Dwight D. Eisenhower as a “conscious, card-carrying agent of the Communist conspiracy.”
Asked to respond to the comment, the young William F. Buckley Jr., who was trying to solidify a more intellectually responsible conservative movement, replied that “Eisenhower isn’t a Communist. He’s a golfer.”
I like the proposal above. It signals an end to American military adventurism abroad, and a redirection of our military assets to more peaceful purposes. Perhaps we can contract the patrolling of the seas out to China.
