My dad served this country for 45 years, 30 years in the Navy, and 15 as a postal clerk. I was drafted into the Army for two years in 1969 and spent 15 years as a structural engineer for the Department of Defense. From my dad’s knowledge and my own experience, and from the wisdom of America’s founding fathers, I am very hesitant to give my complete trust to politicians. I have seen men killed and millions of taxpayer dollars wasted because of blatant incompetence.
And for those reasons, I voted for Trump, a non-politician. But, I wasn’t naïve enough to believe he could “Make America Great Again.” A civilization recklessly obsessed with recreational drugs and, which encourages the murder of unborn and just-born human beings is little better than any second-rate country which murders its citizenry for political and religious reasons.
Now Trump wants to remove troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. Good for him. I’ve been against our Middle East foreign policy since Desert Storm which occurred at the behest of OPEC. That fiasco led directly to the retaliation of Sept. 11, 2001. It is curious that Obama, Biden and the Democrats are now proponents of continued military involvement. It seems a reversal of ideology happened. I can’t help but suspect the influence of large pay-offs. And, I can only imagine where those pay-offs come from.
