36. I'm in my 70's and remember FDR's " Fireside Chats."
My very first campaign and vote went to IKE because we, even as small children were involved in the WWII war effort and knew who General Eisenhower was.

It saddens me to have lived through so many family hardships and losses to protect our Nation, only to see it being destroyed from WITHIN by these very same traitors that have taken THE OATH, upon "their family bibles," to defend it. Never in my lifetime, would I have ever imagined that our civilian Military defense would be replaced by a hired Mercenary militia such as BlackWater. Never in my lifetime, would I have ever dreamt that our Justice system would be corrupted so dangerously that our US Constitution is deemed nothing but a dirty, old, piece of paper. Never in my lifetime, and a working lifetime working beside, WWII Veterans, VietNam era Military/Veterans, have imagined that our Active Duty and Veterans of the Iraq/Afghan war been so abused and mistreated by their own Commander in Chief, their Military Commanders and most of all by WE THE PEOPLE. While well paid Mercenaries receive the very best of equipment and training along with pay and benefits and our Volunteer real military are left to fend for themselves, relying on only their families to purchase needed protective equipment, etc., no better than the wives, girlfriends following the camps of Poncho Villa to cook and take care of their loved ones.

This is the worst and it won't get any better until WE THE PEOPLE wake up and realize, that this is not how it is supposed to be and that your fathers, great grandfathers, great-great grandfathers and yes mothers and sisters, Aunts and Uncles, died and fought to hold on to the very freedoms that these Traitors are taking away.
