Veterans support all candidates 2012!

American popular and political culture insists on dividing people up into groups- then assigning a separate value to each group-


Washington State Governor’s Race:

Veterans support Rob McKenna

But wait- veterans are supporting the opposing candidate too:

Veterans Endorse Jay Inslee for Governor

What about bus drivers- who do they endorse?


For US President:

Veterans & Military Families for Obama

Veterans for Romney


My sense of identity is not very much linked to being a veteran- or a member of any group.


The people who run both major parties & the conventions that nominate presidential candidates agree on the Drug War.

Ditto for the TV networks that host presidential debates & ask scripted questions of candidates.

Both major parties are OK with decades of ongoing, undeclared wars overseas.


Most of the public policy issues I care about will not change no matter which major party is in power.

War on Drugs, Fake War on Terror, ongoing, undeclared wars in distant lands, a costly and ineffective Homeland Security Police State, federal alcohol prohibition for adults age 18-20, violent SWAT raids on the homes of peaceful people who may casually use marijuana, etc.


Hey veterans-

How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?
