(CNN) - Lawmakers and elected officials of both past and present took to Twitter on Thanksgiving to send their holiday greetings.
I also wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and very thankful that I live in the country that I do. So next time you have folks that want to cry out stuff like "sociolism", "communism", "dictatorship" and "I want my country back" should also be thankful that they live in a country well they are free to say such things, where they can not only be critical of either party but of the president himself no matter if what they say is true or not. If they actually lived in such countries they would not have the freedom to do what we can do here.
My family will offer the same toast today as we do at every Thanksgiving. "Sincere thanks to our deployed Service-members spending their Thanksgiving overseas in harms-way in defense of our freedom."
thank you to our president to all the men and women in uniform and to all the people that have been effected by sandy. God bless and keep us all
