    Cruz, Palin join protesters at WWII Memorial[W:793:1010:1190]

    Cruz, Palin join protesters at WWII Memorial

    Forget the politicians involved, this is political gain for them - the point of this posting is to commend the Veterans who are not sitting back and just taking it. They are standing up to the government because of how badly it is behaving.

    This is NOT the country these men fought for, that country would never barricade statues, close down roads and evict people from private property because they were having a hissy fit. The country they fought for would not try to make anything as painful as they can on the American people just because they want to make a point - the point of you need government and without government you will suffer.

    How does that very government reply to the protests...my sending out police in riot gear to quell the protests.

    Didnt we see the same response from a government 20 or so years ago against protesters who were tired of its governments abuse of power... Tienanmen Square?
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Cruz and Palin are honestly pathetic. I applaud the veterans on the other hand. 80+ years old and still fighting for their country against those who are trying to ruin it; their politicians. Hats off to them. I only wish the people would realize how corrupt the government is and make a true change, not an Obama "change"

    Sarah Palin was the Cn'C of the Alaska National Guard. As Cn'C she paid a visit to her troops in 2007 in Kuwait during the Iraq war. This was back when 99.9 % didn't even know who Palin was. Her son also served in the Army and did a tour in Iraq.

    Obama is suppose to be the Cn'C of our military and I didn't see him yesterday removing the barricades and carrying them over to his crib at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    BTW. Saraha Palin was just not a better Cn'C than Obama, but Palin had higher approval ratings from the troops as Cn'C than Obama ever had.

    Politicians didn't need to be a part of this.

    I bet you'd both be saying something very different if these were leftwrong-wing politicians showing up to support a similar protest against some alleged right-wing abuse.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Every time a veteran does anything the GOP and Fox news are right there playing it up as hard as they can. I find it hard to believe its because they actually give a ****.

    Sarah Palin knew she couldn't beat Obama in 2012 so she went quietly out of the limelight during the election. Election is in 2.5 years. She's already trying to get some votes. Thankfully, there are 5 years worth of tapes showing how insane she is. She's downright unelectable.
