    I'm sorry but as a disabled vet and why I joined the military;
    I'm not sorry the purpose but the way people act in this country
    I gave of myself as others did because we protect the weak;
    The USA is about ALL; Liberty and Justice for ALL
    I'm tired of so few causing negative propaganda and the ignorance that listens to them;
    My father and uncles all heroes of WWII would kick the butts of these non- Americans.
    This Nation is for ALL!!! not just for the 1% and their scheming ways; crushing the life out of the middle class and poor for greed;
    Everyday they cut into our lives; smaller products and costing more, control oil, gas, coal, insurance.
    Most of our government is controlled by the 1% and dramatic changes are needed;
