Ft. Hood and the Presidential Election

Ft. Hood and the Presidential Election

Tomorrow is the third anniversary of the Ft. Hood shooting. It is also Election Day.

Are you going to vote for the guy who called it “work place violence”?

While both candidates have focused on the national debt, the economy and health care, both sides telling us this election will determine the course of the country for many years if not decades to come, none of these issues really matter.

With a Commander-in-Chief who refuses to name our enemies as our enemies for fear of insulting them, there won’t be a United States of America to leave to our children. There are people in this world who hate us and don’t distinguish between Republican and Democrat. They hate us because we are Americans. They hate us because we believe in freedom of choice, freedom of and from religion, freedom of speech and that quaint notion that girls are as deserving of education, of the right to determine their own destiny in life as are boys.

Sometimes, it really is that simple. Sometimes, the choice really does come down to one issue. Defend us from our enemies, so we can have a country to leave to our children. President Obama, you swore an oath on our Constitution to protect us from all enemies, foreign and domestic. To do that, you have to be willing to name our enemies.

    Views and opinions from the Gold Star, Military and Veteran perspective are generally different from those of the civilian world. Much of what I write is "their" stories, as told to me as the Gold Star Mother of PFC Andrew Meari, KIA 11/1/10 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. This is how I continue to honor the Oath my son took. I don't like labels or boxes as the former is insufficient to describe a person and the latter limits a person but if you insist, call me a Progressive Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
