I was talking with a friend today about our politicians and I started thinking about the differences between Politicians and Veterans:
Veterans swear the same Oath the politicians do when they join the military. “To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic….” . That’s only part of it, but it’s the most important part, because it means that we have to ensure that our Constitution is allowed to stand strong and protect the Rights and Freedoms of the citizens of America! We have shared blood and lost lives to protect our nation, we have lost brothers and sisters in combat and have seen the worst of the world face to face, but we kept our Oath then, and keep it now as Veterans! Politicians do only what benefits them and provides them power, with little concern towards the very citizens’ Rights they have sworn to protect! Most people see the bad in other politicians, but ignore the criminality in their own, and that’s why so many bad politicians, on both sides, keep being voted back into office!
Whenever you see a Member of Congress sitting in a meeting, you will see their name on a nameplate in front of them, and before their names you will see the word “Honorable”; the “Honorable Senator Reid”, the “Honorable Congresswoman Pelosi” and the “Honorable Congressman Boehner”. The difference between the word “honorable” regarding our Military, Veterans and politicians is this simple:
1. “Honor” regarding our Military and Veterans isupright:
2. “Honor” regarding our politicians is: “
So our Military and Veterans have to earn the title of “Honorable” by working with principles and honor and, during war and other conflicts, through sacrifice, courage and love of country, yet politicians simply gain it by being elected! That’s like calling a Vet a hero because of his, or her sacrifice in war, yet Hollywood money-making actors get called “heroes” simply by acting like a real soldier for a movie! And their followers see them as heroes, even though many diminish the courage and true honor of our Military and Veterans just so they can gain more fans! Every man who sacrificed in Vietnam for his country and his brothers were spit on and treated like garbage simply because the Progressives who were driving the Anti-War Movement needed to break down the military, and they made our lives hell! But we kept our honor and pushed our way back up! But many of those Progressives who were tearing up our lives back then are now in office as Congressmen and Senators who could care less about their Oaths! They simply repeat their Oaths in public to look like they really care about our country and people, but they don’t!
According to an investigation by Capitol Hill Blue, an online publication that covers federal politics, a remarkable number of U.S.
Representatives and U.S. Senators may have spent as much time in a jail cell as on Capitol Hill.
After researching public records, newspaper articles, civil court transcripts, and criminal records, Capitol Hill Blue discovered that:
* 29 members of Congress have been accused of spousal abuse.
* 7 have been arrested for fraud.
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks.
* 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses.
* 3 have been arrested for assault.
* 71 have credit reports so bad they can’t qualify for a
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges.
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting.
* 21 are current defendants in lawsuits.
* And in 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity.
And these are only the ones that have been made a part of public record!
Yes, there are vets who have done similar things, but they did it without being a Federal Leader in our government and without violating their Oath to our Constitution, as our politicians do, by violating promises to people who took the time to elect them into office! What a man does on his own, with only his own problems caused by his actions is his own business but, when a Member of Congress violates the very laws they are supposed to protect, then get off only because they are a Member of Congress, that is a situation of major criminality!
We all know about the huge number of lies that are told to us every single day! We know that almost all of the politicians who signed on for the passing of the Obama Care Law didn’t even know what they were voting for, they didn’t even care enough about their voters to ensure that they would be unharmed by the law, and we know about the deception of our own Congressman Boehner when it comes to him “promising to care for our Rights”, but simply doing what he wanted to do, and we have to make sure that they know that this has to end! We have to put an end to the “lifetime jobs” that our politicians get and push for a change to term limits for all Members of Congress! We need to call them and mail them every time we see them lie and let them know that we are no longer going to sit back and let them do what they want to! The only reason it has gotten this bad is because most Americans were simply happy to have a good job and life, so they didn’t watch our Member of Congress at all! Now we have to! We have to let them realize that there is no more “getting away” with any violation of their Oaths, the same laws we have to live with and their promises to us that allowed them to be elected! Everyone can complain about this all they want to and say there is no way to change things, but they are wrong! We, the people, have to stand up and make our voices heard, we have to make them fear the anger of the voters! We can only accomplish what we are willing to do: It’s our responsibility! So, my fellow true Americans; we won the election! Now we have to make sure we get exactly what we were promised by those we elected! It’s not up to “someone else”; it’s up to us!
WAKE UP AMERICANS, OR LOSE AMERICA!
