Vancouver Veterans Parade Cheapened by Political Stunt – Updated

by lewwaters

WHEN DID VETERANS DAY STOP BEING ABOUT VETERANS?

Soldiers TearsHow inappropriate that some people are so politically charged that they feel they must invade a Yearly Parade to show honor and respect to those that have fought to defend our nation in our wars to promote their political cause.

Left or right doesn’t matter, Veterans Day and events held in association with it are no place to promote anybodies political agenda. It is one day out of the year set aside just to honor those men and women that have sacrificed their youth to protect our way of life.

If you are wondering why I say the above, I too was taken aback to stumble across a facebook page asking others to join in marching in the Veterans Parade to be held Saturday, Nov. 7 in Vancouver to promote and gather signatures for an initiative some want to see passed to eventually overturn a Supreme Court ruling on funding political campaigns.

Democrats Continue the Highjack of the GOP Legacy

by lewwaters

I’ve lost count of how many times liberal Democrats have bashed the Republicans for being mean-spirited, racist, cold hearted, evil and just the worst sort of people to ever exist on the face of the earth. Every election or whenever faced with a major piece of legislation they wish to promote, Democrats pull out the race card, the homosexual card and in spite of calls for civility, engage in some of the worst condemnations imaginable of conservatives and Republicans.

Listening to Democrats, especially since the 2008 elections that saw Barack Obama installed at the helm of the nation, the first ever Republican president, Abraham Lincoln was actually a strong liberal Democrat. Dwight Eisenhower, who led Allied Forces to Victory in World War Two and who was president during the 1950’s was really a strong liberal Republican.

And perhaps the strangest of all of their highjacking is after heavily bashing of Ronald Reagan during his time in office and since, he too is being embraced as more of a liberal Democrat.

It has even been said by liberals, “Obama is more of a Reagan/Eisenhower Republican than a Truman Democrat.”

Race huckster columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. even wrote a column titled Reagan wouldn’t recognize — or like — today’s GOP.

Perhaps in regards to their lack of spine today, he might be on the right track, but that is not what Pitts is saying. No, he is actually condemning Arizona’s Republican Jan Brewer because she had the audacity to wag her finger in the Lord High Mighty Barack Obama’s face and it was caught on camera. Blasphemy!
