I am a veteran of the armed forces and retired after 24 years of service to this country (ten years of active duty and 14 years in the national guard).

I believe this country is great because our ancestors were not afraid to stand up and fight for what they considered right. We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave as demonstrated by America’s next great generation who is out on the front line of freedom.

I can not stand liberalism and feel it is a disease that eats away, like a cancer, at the fabric of our society. I also believe that if this country does not stop pandering to special interest groups and does not stop taking away the rights guaranteed under our Constitution, and if they do not stop creating a welfare class of dependent people, there will be another civil war. It will start as an uprising to take the government over from the politicians who have lost all touch with the core values of this country. Then anarchy will set in followed by civil war.
