Part of me wants to respond to everything you said. However, it would be a waste of time. I'm not far left by any stretch of the imagination. I, too, have a family history of men and women who served our country. So?
Does that mean I should support Donald Trump? My God. No.
I'm not going to waste many more words, but I appreciate your response and the fact you read my story.
I'm 69 years old, I suspect my life experiences are much the same as yours. We just disagree on some things. I am not a socialist -- and socialism and communism are not the same forms of government.
I wish you and your family well - especially your children who are veterans.
God bless you.
