ΑΥΤΟ ΤΟ ΓΕΝΟΣ ΔΕΝ ΦΕΥΓΕΙ…Ή ΜΗ ΜΕ ΝΗΣΤΕΙΑ ΚΑΙ ΠΡΟΣΕΥΧΗ…

 

Harry Truman was a different kind of President.
He probably made as many, or more important decisions
regarding our nation’s history ..

as any of the other 42 Presidents preceding him.
However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House.

The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence Missouri .
His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and otherthan their years in the
White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When
he retired from office in 1952, his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and
personally licking them, granted him an ‘allowance’ and later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower
was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri
by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries,
he declined, stating, «You don’t want me.
You want the office of the President, and that doesn’t belong to me.

It belongs to the American people and it’s not for sale.»

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing,
«I don’t consider that I have done anything
which should be the reason for any award,
Congressional or otherwise.»

As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food.

Modern politicians have found
a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth.

Today, many in Congress also have found a way to become
quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices.

Political offices are now for sale.

Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed,
«My choices in life were either to be a piano player …
in a whore house or a politician.
And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference!

σ.σ Το θυμηθηκα, βλεποντας τους¨φουσκωτους¨..να παρεχουν την προστασια τους στους αριστερους κυβερνητες μας..Αλλα και ¨παλαιοτερους¨αρχοντες, που ουτε που τους θυμαται πλεον κανεις, να περιφερουν τη παρουσια τους , ακολουθουμενοι από φρουρα, που πληρωνουμε απ τις ¨Περικοπες¨των συνταξεων…
Κατά τα αλλα οι αμερικανοι είναι οι κακοι…Για να μην θυμηθω το…¨ξανθον γενος¨, απ το οποιο περιμενουμε ελεημοσυνη…Χαιρετε..
