4. The kid told me
They are pissed at Bush for cutting the Vets benefits, cutting VA hospital benefits, making the soldiers pay for their meals, giving them crappy equipment, etc
I always wanted to go have a beer at the American Legion, but figured they wouldnt like some liberal like me in there
Not so, says their bartender...he says they hate Bush...I would be very welcome.

3. Vets Don't Like Bush
The American Legion needs to get its head of its ass. The vets don't like Bush but they'll vote for him. The American Legion will express concerns, but when they endorse a candidate, it will be Bush.

6. The Max Cleland Revenge Tour 2004....
Max is going to EVERY vets group around the country and filling them in on exactly the way the Bushites crap on vets and the military. Max is heading up Veterans for Kerry.

left-wing military coup?

8. As long as they don't pull the lever for *, I'm happy. . .
But if they chickenshit out and vote for * anyway, then they'll lose my respect.

9. The traditional alternative:

10. they don't need to now...
the entire country, even the mediawhores can see that bush is a disaster....so his old supporters like these 'vets' don't need to exert themselves for their country....they should 'stay true to
double-you'
