Too much to ask ?

    Is it too much to ask that  we take care of  all those who serve ?
    How long will we go on putting them "on the back burner" ?
    If you get  Obama's or Hillary's free health care , will it be better than the V.A.?
    Will the veteran always be Last ?
    After all they went first !

    Vote for who most supports them !

      Unfortunately the military has turned into more of a business than what many consider service. An all volunteer force has separated us from the costs as the elite don't have to worry about their kids being drafted. Let the peasants take care of their own seems to be the result.

      I like that poster. The solution could be that we stop insisting on sending troops into other countries and only engage if we are attacked by another sovereign nation; and a military response with ground forces is the logical response.

      I listen to military personal and Vets talk about the troops and Veterans and they say the narrative about the Vets having PTSD and mental disorders is magnified-propaganda.  Its not a big problem like it is being made out to be.  Its a ploy to take their 2nd Amendment rights away from people who are trained for combat, and to brainwash public opinion. 

      They pose a threat to the tyrants and bad people like the mentally ill jihadists and ideologically ignorant violent rioters. They do not pose a threat to law abiding Americans who love America and their civil liberties, they will defend you.

      Our Veterans are not being treated fairly or with the honor and respect they deserve.  They shouldn't have to wait over 30 days to get an appointment for medical care at the VA like is happening to thousands of them. As a result many are dying waiting inline for the medical care they need. 

      Our Veterans are one of our greatest assets in this time of civil unrest in America, I put my trust in them.  I would believe a Veteran before I would believe a career politician or the MSM.

      Although, there have been and are corrupt military officers. I don't care to talk about them much.
