Priorities in Government Spending

There are many opinions as to how the U.S. national budget should be spent. I resonate with this powerful statement that Dwight D. Eisenhower made years ago:

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.”

Jesus Christ taught and lived peace, and taught and lived compassionate help for the poor. I think he would say that Eisenhower was on the right track.

Is our nation on the right track today?
