In his State of the Union Address, President Eisenhower predicts a $4-billion budget surplus ($28.7 billion USD 2008)
Eisenhower’s State of the Union Address runs over three pages and I doubt many people will read the entire speech, but I’m posting it for those who care to look it over.
It begins: “Seven years ago, I entered my present office with one long-held resolve overriding all others. I was then, and remain now, determined that the United States shall become an ever more potent resource for the cause of peace -- realizing that peace cannot be for ourselves alone, but for peoples everywhere. This determination is shared by the entire Congress -- indeed, by all Americans.”
He also said: "We now stand in the vestibule of a vast new technological age -- one that, despite its capacity for human destruction, has an equal capacity to make poverty and human misery obsolete. If our efforts are wisely directed -- and if our unremitting efforts for dependable peace begin to attain some success -- we can surely become participants in creating an age characterized by justice and rising levels of human well-being."
Note: The texts of all State of the Union Addresses are available here.
