    I love you my dear. God bless you. Wish I could hug your neck and thank you for your service to our country. I am the widow of a WW 2. Miss him dearly.

    Veterans would make great elected officials. Most are experienced pragmatists and have the heart of regular citizens. We are the enemy of the corrupt political state!

    This was much more of a mandate compared to Bush's so called mandate in 2004.

    Way to go I as another vet applaud ur willingness to serve again. I wish that I could summon to will to server a people as ungrateful as this nation again. Once through that particular rabbit hole is enough for this guy.
