You are absolutely right. The repugs have been and will continue to steal votes and elections

In the case of 2012 they are going all out. They see ,and I believe, that they have so consolidated their power that they are just one major election away from stealing our democracy perhaps forever.

If they do steal the presidential election they will appoint right wing ideologues to the the Supreme Court. A court that will alter any law they do not like. We will really see what activist judges are capable of doing. Citizen United will seem like child's play.

Say goodbye to national healthcare, say goodbye to Medicare, say goodbye to Social Security, say goodbye to the right to vote if you are a woman or a person of color, say goodbye to public education, say good by to the middle class. Say hello to the top 1% owning 99% of the wealth.

In other words a government of, by and for the ultra-rich.

To the veterans reading this. Remember the day you raised your right hand and took an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. We as veterans have always done the job of defending against foreign threats.

NOW is the time to stand up one more time and fend of the domestic enemies.

None of us wore a uniform and served so that a few billionaires could simply buy our democracy at a bargain basement sale in 2012.

All of us owe it to those who have died in the defense of this country to ensure they did not die in vein.
