If we are to preserve our republic, we must have veterans in Congress. Veterans serve as a “hard drive” where we “backup” our files on war and peace. Ralph Hall has served with several presidents, the good and the bad. As a member of The Greatest Generation, world war isn’t something he read about; he lived it.
“The number of veterans in the 113th Congress reflects the trend of steady decline in recent decades in the number of Members who have served in the military. For example, 64% of the members of the 97th Congress (1981-1982) were veterans; and in the 92nd Congress (1971-1972), 73% of the Members were veterans.” – Congressional Research Service, March 14, 2014
With the retirement of John Dingell earlier this year, to my knowledge, Ralph Hall is the last of WW2 veterans serving in the House of Representatives.
This sitting president declared his intention to set up a “civilian national security force” equal to our military.
By all appearances, Obama is well on his way to achieving his goal. Every ‘alphabet-soup’ department of the executive branch now has a SWAT team. GSA is purchasing firearms ammunition the equivalent of 30 years of Iraq war for use by his civilian security defense force.
Why does the Department of Education need a SWAT team?
If by now you fail to understand whom Obama is targeting, you are in for a very unpleasant awakening.
Congressman Hall has consistently, even at times at odds with House GOP leadership, opposed the Obama agenda. Now, Washington GOP Beltway insiders want his opponent to replace Ralph. Can that be a good thing for us?
Let’s work to Re-Elect Ralph Hall. Early voting opens this morning and Election Day is May 27. I urge you to vote early and remind your friends and neighbors to vote, also. You are eligible to vote in the runoff election even if you did not vote in the primary election.
God bless Ralph Hall and God bless America.
