Our Country’s is Ridiculous in how it treats our Soldiers,

Louise Downing : March 18, 2012

A ten year war and no end in sight! How stupid does our government think we are! Who are the fat cats that are benefiting by it? The stock market is doing ok by it but out 15 trillion in debt is really unbelievable and yet what is even worse of all is our young soldiers are dying loosing limbs, eye sight with brains that no longer function reasonably or not at all.

Our government is treating our young soldiers like the cattlemen taking their herd to slaughter! Yes I mean slaughter, that’s why we have so many soldiers committing suicide every year and its because they see no future for themselves .

Now we had a 37 year old soldier that went off the deep end and killed  16 people ,was over seas for 10 years serving what he thought was his country, disabled  and still not sent back home as many more soldiers  in his situation, He lost his home and his family put out in the street. Is this a reward our government  gives for 10 years of service? I am not a brain specialist but a 86 year old great grandmother  who has lived all my life and haven't seen or heard of anyone who has gone through what that soldier has gone though, that didn't temporally snap and did something violent  short of committing suicide . We owe that soldier his life and in peace!

We want our soldiers to come back home now and not years from now in countries that never bothered us.

    Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
