I’ve been trying to come up with the right words to express just how upsetting and disgusting I find Trump’s comments, actions, and attitudes toward our military, veterans, and military families and I can’t come up with anything that will do it.
This isn’t the only reason he’s an awful and terrifying choice for POTUS – and not even the most compelling – but it does show his incredible disrespect and ignorance with regard to the principles and dedication required to be a member of the US military.
I urge all of my fellow veterans, do not vote for this draft-dodging piece of shit. For so many reasons this man is a danger to our country and to the larger global community. Voting for third-party candidates only serve to boost Trump’s chances of securing the necessary number of electoral votes. Protest voting isn’t the way to effect change at this point. There’s too much at stake. People of color, LGBTQ folks, non-Christians, women, and others are in danger of losing hard earned rights. His influence wouldn’t just be felt for a minimum of four years, but for decades to come by filling the Supreme Court with extreme right-wing judges.
Early voting is available in many locations. Vote. Help others to get to the polls.
