he spent 20 billion dollars out of a total 100 billion dollar budget on the Interstate Highway Program, an obviously "socialist" stimulus type work program, along with a needed public service.


WRONG, EISENHOWER SAW THE AUTOBAHN IN GERMANY AND REALIZED THAT IT WAS NECESSARY FOR THE SECURITY OF THIS COUNTRY TO BE ABLE TO QUICKLY MOVE TROOPS AND EQUIPMENT, HE ALSO SAW IT AS A BENEFIT TO COMMERCE AND THE ECONOMY!!!! EISENHOWER WAS NOT FDR!

"I wonder how middle class worker felt in the mid 1800's? Which Political Party's and Ideals represented them?"
 
 
1850?  Most workers here by then where just damn glad to find a country where they could actually work and own some land.. and be free to make the choices... and then in 1862 we decided to entice even more to our country with the homestead act.. they poured over the waters to be free.. and built this county..  They knew if they didn't own anything they where bound to be working for someone all their lives.. the grunt jobs. Serving, cleaning, farming the land.
 
 Kinda like it is becoming today, those that are still working today are the ones doing the grunt jobs.. serving you in restaurants, serving you in grocery stores, serving you in the big box stores.. etc. 
 
The companies that built this country.. GONE! 
 
We now have US Motors, US Mortgages and soon we will have US Medical care.. and we will all work for the government.
 
Why in the world did we allow this to happen?

yeah, he spent 20 billion dollars out of a 100 billion dollar budget so he could move trucks from one army base to another faster...goofus.  we have navies on both oceans, we wouldn't need an interstate highway system primarily for moving military supplies from base to base.  and this was in the 50's, the dawn of the nuclear age, remember?  the atomic bomb was the new military strategy, not being able to move supplies from one base to another the fastest...goofus.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways, commonly called the Interstate Highway System (or simply the Interstate), is a network of limited-access highways (also called freeways or expressways) in the United States that is named for President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who championed its formation. The entire system, as of 2006, has a total length of 46,876 miles (75,440 km),[1] making it both the largest highway system in the world and the largest public works project in history.[2] The Interstate Highway System is a subsystem of the National Highway System.
The Interstate Highway System was authorized by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956[8] – popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act of 1956 – on June 29. It had been lobbied for by major U.S. automobile manufacturers and championed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was influenced by his experiences as a young Army officer crossing the country in the 1919 Army Convoy on the Lincoln Highway, the first road across America. Eisenhower also had gained an appreciation of the German Autobahn network as a necessary component of a national defense system while he was serving as Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II.[9] In addition to facilitating private and commercial transportation, it would provide key ground transport routes for military supplies and troop deployments in case of an emergency or foreign invasion.

As I recall IKE was assigned to take a convoy accross country in 1919. Part of a National Defense exercise.


One of the selling points of IKE's interstate was that it was paid for with an earmark tax collected from gas sales. People who drove on the interstates paid for their building and maintance with this tax until it got lost in the general fund.

The Interstae was a public works project that made America what it is today. For whatever that is worth...lol


Everywhere looks the same now! I'm not sure that's a good thing or a bad...


The Hoover Dam grew our country also...but Hoover don't get much credit for that...lol

Maybe if more of us did, there would less of those aforementioned scourges.

Hooty, it doesn't do you any good to speak english because you cannot decipher the meaning of it, or use it to your advantage.  You are stuck in a communist rut and cannot understand anything else.  One day, on this board, I would really like to see an awakening in your typing.  Please, one day soon open your eyes to your ignorance.
