He violates their First Amendment rights; cuts defense spending; subjects them to asinine “Rules of Engagement;” demoralizes them; and then asserts returning veterans are potential terrorists and takes away their Second Amendment Rights.
He takes away their voting rights: They usually vote Republican, so Obama hates them. He doesn’t ensure timely delivery of absentee ballots to war zones. Thousands of soldiers couldn’t vote in 2012.
He cuts the Defense Budget. He has fired over 80,000 soldiers, cancelled production of F-12 and C-17 transports, grounded destroyers, cancelled maintenance, bankrupted small defense contractors and harmed military readiness. But he insists on squandering money to benefit his “green” cronies, spending $27/gallon on biofuels instead of $4/gallon on petroleum products.
He has introduced gays into the army for political reasons, with no discussion of the consequences of an HIV/AIDS infected injured soldier on the battlefield. The TSA, and all medical personnel, wear gloves for fear of infection. What if another injured and bleeding soldier has to rescue the first?
Obama has also introduced women into combat positions for political reasons. They have less strength and stamina. Standards have to be lowered. Unit readiness is undermined. Putting women in close quarters without privacy increases harassment and pregnancies. Worst of all, this removes the natural chivalry of men in the presence of women. What should they do? Fight twice as hard to protect our women and prevent them being kidnapped and raped?
Obama has taken away their freedom of religion. Christians have religious freedom only inside chapels. Outside, discussions of their Christian beliefs about homosexuality or abortion are prohibited. Atheists even demand removal of Crosses commemorating dead soldiers’ graves. But the Pentagon celebrates Ramadan and Obama hosts Iftar dinners. In Afghanistan, Qurans defaced by inmates’ scrawled messages were burned as trash. Obama apologized profusely and promised to punish the “miscreants.” But Obama confiscated and burned Bibles translated into Pashtun because “it offends” Muslims. Christians are not even permitted to pray together before going into battles where they could be killed!
Obama is taking away the Second and Fifth Amendment Rights of returning veterans saying they might join “Right Wing Extremists groups!” Without prior notice or hearings, Veterans get letters stating the VA has rated them “incompetent for VA purposes.” To get a hearing, the veteran must pay the costs. Once deemed “incompetent,” a government “fiduciary” will handle the veteran’s benefits payments. And the veteran is prohibited, on penalty of fine or imprisonment, from purchasing, possessing or using any weapon!**
Do you think Veterans who have served our Country deserve this kind of treatment? Do you doubt that Obama is trying to demoralize and defeat our Army?
