I mentioned earlier that my father has been a Republican all his adult life, and that he is a combat veteran of WWII. Every WWII veteran I've met from my extensive visits to veteran's hospitals etc are Republicans and or Conservatives. These Repubs/Cons chose their particular ideology because they viewed honor of and defense of America to be the first and foremost character trait among all the others combined.
The very nature of and fact to war(s) is that any sound and democratically run governments/nations will go to war to prevent further attacks on its homeland, and or to answer the call when their homeland was attacked. Such was the case against Hitler since he (Germany) declared war against America, and against Japan after they attacked us at Pearl Harbor.
These modern wars also find the Republican leaders answering the call once again to engage in them to uphold and honor the American tradition of utilizing our military might when called upon.
If current liberal leaders and former liberal military men like John Kerry and the late John Murtha himself are representative of what it means to be a liberal, then I truly suspect that there are zero liberal veterans from WWII still alive today. We do remember how Murtha sided with our enemies by trying to get our Marines convicted of murder. And we all remember the shameful past of Kerry as he spoke negatively of our Vietnam veterans--calling their acts worse than those carried out by Ghengis Khan, and with his eventual membership into VVAW (Vietnam Veterans Against War), where he sided with his fuck the established ho-in-tow buddy Jane Fonda, and when he became the traitor he is today.
So my question to you fine upstanding American members of this forum is.......Do you know of an American WWII veteran that calls or claims to be a liberal?
