I watch politicians constantly, and I listen for some spark of hope, but it never comes.

This is what I would like to hear someday: “Fellow Americans, I watch TV daily and see commercials from Wounded Warriors asking an already exhausted people who are paying way too many taxes to contribute $19 a month.

“I intend to flood the Senate, the House of Representatives and the White House with non-stop letters demanding some of the billions and billions going to non-helpful useless countries be given to our veterans.

“I don’t care what reason for exporting U.S. dollars the government gives; it holds no water. I will be relentless in this pursuit and I invite anyone who thinks the same to join me.”
