First, a brief history (because history is always important). Armistice Day was originally proclaimed by worst-president-ever Woodrow Wilson on November 11, 1919, the one-year anniversary of the end of World War I (a war he promised to keep us out of).
Today, Veterans Day is pretty widely celebrated. It isn’t hard, even in the more left-wing communities, to find “Support Our Troops” magnets and to occasionally get a “Thank you for your service” if spotted in uniform. Generally speaking, support for and approval of the military is fairly high in America.
The question that should be asked on Veterans Day is, what is the proper way to show support for the military? If you feel that servicemembers deserve a thank you, how do you properly thank them? Well, as you may have guessed, I have one suggestion. Why not figure out what they want, not for themselves, but for the country, and help them achieve it? I don’t believe that anybody joins the military “just for the money.” There are other ways to get money. Anyone who joins, I believe, has at least some part of them that truly cares about the nation and wants to help protect it.
We’re about one year out from an election. Statistically speaking, it is without a doubt that current and former members of the armed forces prefer Ron Paul. Congressman Paul is the only candidate on either side of the aisle who will bring the troops home “as soon as the ships can get there,” and will end foreign wars of choice. This Veterans Day, if you want to thank the military, do so by researching their preferred candidate. Ask yourself why so many members of the military are donating to Congressman Paul’s campaign. Consider registering as a Republican so you can support him in the primaries. Consider making a donation on today’s Veteran’s Day moneybomb.
Congressman Paul has one important thing in common with every current and former servicemember. He took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Not to transform it. Not to change it. Not to scour it for loopholes allowing him to achieve certain political objectives by creative means that obviously subvert the original intent. If you want to help the military, then you need to help Congressman Paul Restore America Now.
