Ron Paul's salute to veterans

"Most of my efforts on Capitol Hill are focused on reducing the federal government’s size and scope, but I make an exception for a very important group of people. Our nation’s men and women in uniform commit a selfless act of patriotism when they take up arms in defense of our country. As a veteran myself, I salute all those currently serving, or who have served in our armed forces. Our nation owes them a debt of gratitude for their sacrifices, their courage, their time away from friends and family, and the dangers they undertake. This Memorial Day we honor our soldiers and vets, we remember those who never came home, or who have since passed on. Above all, we acknowledge our respect for all who have served in the military."

It's about time this cause got some high level support. For a country that relies so heavily on the willing service of its citizens, the thanks they get is a bit superficial.


Check out the names at the bottom of the article. Not their finest hour.

Over and over, this Presidential candidate show he's the only decent and qualified person for the job.

Ron does display honesty, and shows good character with his words, and deeds....ohh man, this the first time I have ever agreed with Marc's opinion. Maybe the rednecks from the west can get along with the soverignists from Quebec???

"Maybe the rednecks from the west can get along with the soverignists from Quebec???"

It's possible, but unfortunately there are the ignorant rich bigots of Ontario which stand in the way of everything.
