A Soldier Speaks

The following comment was posted on this site a few weeks ago and it’s eloquence speaks for itself. The only thing I would add to this is we saw a similar scenario played out by the GOP right before Christmas. They were all about 9/11 and it’s heroes, until it came time to come to the aid of sick and dying first responders. – OTOOLEFAN

I am a totally disabled veteran, there are actually very few of us who are totally disabled.

Needless to say. I wish the liberals would take the credit they deserve. Liberals do more to support veterans disabled veterans than the right does. The right actually hates disabled vets.

The real issue is that people equate defense spending and supporting the military with supporting veterans. Veterans do not benefit one dime from defense spending.

We rely on the VA, and the pyramid of federal and state aid programs. IT IS THE LIBERALS WHO SUPPORT ME. And not any of the patriotic charities that raise tons of money under the guise of supporting veterans.

I really don’t get involved in politics. But I live in Delaware and Christine O’Donnell and the 9/12 patriots attacked me, so I did get involved. ( Meet Sen Kerry at a Chris Coons Event ).

So liberals, take your credit, there are alot of disabled vets that understand this so please take your props.

    How exactly does the right hate disabled veterans? And if you dont use those charities then that is up to you. Thousands of Americans look to help in way they can and do so by volunteering in these organizations. Frankly, it’s up to you or your family to take advantage of their kindness.

    As for the VA? Take a look around, last time I looked they wanted to charge disable veterans for their combat related injuries. Want to thank liberals when that happens?

    This post makes me consider the relationship between patriotism and wars. It may be true that enthusiastic patriotism just increases dead and injured soldiers: here’s irony that defense does not necessarily defend citizens in a real sense. What we need most is human care and affection.

    Yes, good post. We expect so much of our volunteer army and when they come home we want them to disappear. More $$ need to be shifted to the VA and wouldn’t a new GI Bill be nice?
