veterans...

Alot of Veteran politics is coming up in the Democractic bid for the presidency... afterall candidate Clark (or is it Clarke?) was a general who used to be the commander of NATO, and Kerry was a Vietnam Veteran, and activist.

Personally I want a strong candidate with a military backgroudn in the White House that understands the damaging affects the Bush White house has caused with foreign powers. We've cut many ties, and those still in the US camp (with an uncertain ggrasp of how much longer Britain will be with us...) But more than that... I'm irked at the abominable way this nation is treating its veterans. they are planning to cut back and close Veteran hospitals, and this is the time when we need them most. WW2 vets, vietnam, and Korean vets are all dying and getting quite ill, we have soldiers deployed in large numbers around the world (and not JUST in the Middle East) and we want to CLOSE these facilities?

Goodness gracious, it's so bad a congressional medal of honor winner was not getting proper care and Ross perot on his own dime, flew him into Texas and saw that he did get the care he deserved. I mean that is frankly ridiculous. You do not abandon your veterans after they have fought, and toiled, and bled for this country.

We so need the Republicans out of power. >_
