While President of Columbia University, in a speech to New York Herald Tribune Forum in New York City on October 25, 1949, Eisenhower appealed to citizens, "Stop shrugging off politics as only the politicians' business; stop banking on American luck to get us good government and good policy -- some time it will run out. Stop using the alibi, 'one vote doesn't count.' It won't, only if not used! And our neighbor's won't, unless we make him use it."
