Most everything else has been tried … maybe this will work

From Neil Mammen,  author of:

Jesus Was Is Involved in Politics!

Why Aren’t You?

Why Isn’t Your Church?

The book is available from Amazon.com

It doesn’t matter if you are a veteran or not.  Please read and forward this to all your e-mail buddies.  Let it go viral.

The 2014 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and VOTE!

 

A movement has started in our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014…They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us.

The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult that our troops are often killed before they can get permission to fight.

Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either.

Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN’s ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal. The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power.

 

If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger. 

Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists.

Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet.

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the five years before that.

 

Many have died since August. During the last six month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a “force for good in Afghanistan .”

The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed.

There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.

 

It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

 

Obama has had 5 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform.

 

There is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive “get out the vote” drive against this president’s party. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members.

 

This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November 2014 mid-term election, if they all respond.

 

The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls.

It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turnout to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.

 

Veterans: Please forward to your lists.
