11. so simple today

If you are a democrat, you know republicans will do whatever it takes to get re-elected and serve their rich masters.
All this talk about religion, liberty, gun rights are only the smokescreen. So now I understand that those ignorant republicans that own guns and believed the republican lies and committing suicide all out of proportion to their numbers in the population.
Did you ever think that is the same reason our servicemen and women commit suicides? They have sacrificed so much for the lies and when they find out how big the lies really were they become very very depressed. So many of our servicemen and women are killing themselves today. If we do not want that to happen , we have to quit deluding them with our false wars of liberation fought for oil companies.
As a Vietnam vet, I never bought the lie, that we had to kill them to save them. I stood up for their women and children against the Vietnameese officials themselves. I never hated nor blamed these victims. And I treated them with respect. Today our soldiers must in many cases rely upon hate and blame to do their jobs. I know that is not their intent but war will make you more savage, it will make you rationalize brutal behavior as entirely necessary for survival when in fact that brutal behavior when aimed at the defenseless only creates generations who hate us.
I understand my words may be hurtful to many and I regret this but it is what I believe needs to be said and dealt with.
