The question must be posed by each of us, standing in front of a mirror. A gut level conversation just with ourselves. What have I done, or not done, and who have I become?
No more clear a message can be than what is written here by American Patriot – “Away for a while” – two excerpts –
I have spent my life fighting the good fight, only to be kicked when I was down. Attacked by fools who really, honestly haven’t a clue about what it is like to live in a peaceful world, but rather think that those of us who’ve served in the US Military are some kind of baby killers, or murderers.
The 1950s were the best of times and MOST of you were born then and have since created the spawn of the devil in this country who now ruin what our parents work so hard to achieve, to pull us all from Depression. Because you’ve bowed down to a Tyrant, fought to remove our rights for guns and freedom, I say you are now my enemy.
If we let our Veterans down (as we surely have) we let ourselves down. If we let ourselves down, we let our children and our grandchildren down. The buck stops here, not with dot gov who is surely the enemy of this country.
