VETERANS: Don’t support politicians who don’t support them
The love of my life was a disabled combat veteran. All veterans hold a special place in my heart, especially combat veterans and veterans who suffered as prisoners of war.
Our soldiers swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States of America and put their lives on the line in defense of this nation.
Out of respect for them I will never vote for any politician who calls these brave men and women: the wounded, fallen and prisoners of war, “losers and suckers.”
This also goes for any politician who is unwilling the stand up against extremist power plays that threaten to undermine democracy and national security.
I am speaking to those who enable Sen. Tuberville and Speaker of the House Mike Johnson to continue to do the damage they are doing, especially to our military. We have two very dangerous wars at this time and these guys and others who should know better are just screwing around.
In my world extremism (right, left or upside down) and cowardice are unacceptable.
Let us continue to work toward a better nation so the sacrifices of generations of veterans will not be in vain.
