The country was deep into the Great Depression, and the public felt that Hoover did not fully sympathize with their plight and was not doing enough to alleviate it. No one was quite clear on what FDR 8767 s plan was, but as in today 8767 s election season, 8775 change 8776 was enough of an idea to power a campaign.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.

Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman 8767 s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said 8775 the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 8776
And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle 8767 s takeoff. I know it is hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen. It 8767 s all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It 8767 s all part of taking a chance and expanding man 8767 s horizons. The future doesn 8767 t belong to the fainthearted it belongs to the brave.

What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.
