How much longer is our "Freedom" to survive?

     Some of you might think this crazy .... but ..... Mark the words of a Veteran on this one !

The futures of our children & grandchildren, and with our country as well, are now at a crossroads !

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

     I'm not necessarily a "big fan" of Donald Trump ..... but If the Republican's are able to stop Donald Trump from becoming the nominee of the party then our Republic will fall !   Our children & grandchildren will have no future !

     Mr. Trump is not a politician .... he is a "very" successful businessman .... and it is because of these two facts that we need someone exactly like him in the White House.   It's about time we had a "non-politician" in the White House that simply wants to do what is best for the country .... and since he is already fixed for life he doesn't need to know how to wheel and deal like most politicians ( including Hillary ) to get himself ahead in life.

   I realize that Mr. Trump has some crazy ideas like building a wall between the U.S. & Mexico and stopping muslims from entering the country ( which by the way President Obama also did a few years ago ) .... but remember this .... he can't do either of those things if he is elected President without the approval of congress!

     No matter what his ideas .... no matter what he wants to do .... He will have to work with the congress to get anything done. And he, being the successful businessman that he is, realizes that.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

     If Hillary is elected President .... then our Republic will fall !   Our children & grandchildren will have no future !   She has absolutely "no record" to run on except the fact that she is a woman, was once the First Lady, and served as Secretary of State !   Listen to her speeches ... they are "never" about what she has done .... but about what is negative about Donald Trump!   That's because she hasn't done anything of any value for our country or the world itself !

Sorry .... but that is a reality that stares us all right in the face !!

Who has given us our Freedom?

It's the "Soldier", not the reporter who has given us Freedom of the Press .....
It's the "Soldier", not the poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech .....
It's the "Soldier", not the campus organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate .....
It's the "Soldier", not the lawyer, who has given us the Right to a Fair Trial .....

It's the "Soldier" who SALUTES THE FLAG,
SERVES UNDER THE FLAG
and whose COFFIN IS DRAPED BY THE FLAG!

     Worked on a project with the "Democrat & Chronicle" of Rochester, New York.   This project included two parts:   First a database of all the soldiers and sailors that "Gave Their All" during World War II from Monroe County and secondly stories where printed on some of the soldiers on their front page on the Sunday before Memorial Day 2012.   Those stories are no longer available unless you subscribe to that paper.


The database is online and located at the following address and is available for all to view:

     I proudly served my country as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army.   In the 60's, when I was eligible for the draft, they used a lottery system based on birthdates to determine who would be drafted and who wouldn't.   Based on my birthdate it was " positive " that I " would not " be drafted!   " I enlisted in the Army anyway to serve my county despite the fact that I wouldn't be drafted! "
