2. Not a surprise to me,

just a bunch of chickenhawks who ultimately don't give a good god damn about our Military or our country.

Did I mention that I fucking hate chickenhawks?
Include that POS coward, Josh Hawley, who said he will vote no on NATO membership for Sweden and Finland.

4. But Romney spent two years in France

trying to convert people to Mormonism, which is (in his mind) the equivalent!

9. The fields of combat:

The Champs Elysees, I also spent time there. But never as much money as the Romneyís had.

15. and he actively supported the Vietnam war

A newly-unearthed photograph showing Mitt Romney demonstrating in favour of the Vietnam War draft might leave the presidential candidate feeling somewhat embarrassed.

6. Romney gleefully engaged in anti-anti-war protests when he was a college student, in addition

to fucking off to Paris for two years of very arduous Mormon missionary activity.

7. As a combat veteran, I hold no grudge against anyone who avoided the draft

Combat is by far the worst experience Iíve ever dealt with on my life. I wonít disparage anybody for avoiding service in a war in an effort to avoid combat. However, avoiding service then adopting a pro-war stance when your skin isnít on the line is among the lowest thing a person could do - on par with pedophilia and the exploitation of disadvantaged peoples.

Republicans who shunned military service, then advocated for military actions while they were too chicken to put their lives on the line, then refused to take care of those who had served is inexcusable.

Leave it to republicans to let us down. Iím not surprised.

11. Disgusting

Romney and Toomey are very disappointing.

Rand is Rand. Useless. Same with Lee.

Tommy Tubervilleís talent was patrolling the sidelines on Saturdays.

Lankford - I canít take anyone seriously if they think 13-year-olds can consent to sex.

14. This Tillis vote is baffling

For years there have been water issues at Camp Lejeune and funding for those affected was in this bill. For him to vote against this will enrage people.
