Our first commander in chief got it right. The Veterans Administration is in horrific shape as the sick and dying vets in Phoenix and other VA hospitals can attest to. The suicide rate of veterans and the backlog of veterans’ claims are a national disgrace. Washington D.C. is a total bureaucracy run amok. It is self-serving and not deserving of our, the people’s, support. Please everyone, vote to get these buffoons out of the White House and get America running again. You know who they are.

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” — Gen. George Washington
