Wonder why seniors did this? It took people that old who remembe our American values too support our troops, not criticize them for what they are doing. I bet you could ask any of those WW2 or Vietnam vets would they do it all again and they would say yes. KIds today are too busy to fight for their country, especially the one we live in today. Who wants to die for a socialist republic? We m ust get rid of the liars and takers in Washington before it is way too late for the rest of us. We want government by the people back. All the people that wanted to give Obama a chance by voting for this liar and deceitful person, I hope you are the first to lose your jobs and feel great about yourself.
