I Am A Sucker

I have spent a lifetime of service to this country, under Presidents of both parties, and later served the communities with pleasure and honor. I never considered myself neither a “sucker” nor a “loser” and I have served with a smile on my face. I never asked for fame or fortune nor did I shun from the job to be done and ask why.

I, like many others before me and after me, come from a family of honorable servers that put their life on the line for God and country. Before me, there was the draft and I do not know of anyone that refused to serve or hid from the commitment of serving. I have friends that have died and friends that are wounded (medically and/or mentally). There is no one, that I am aware of, who have a frown on their face and have said they do not want to be a loser or sucker.

This President is tearing down the very principles that this country was built upon. He is doing the work that the enemies of this country want done. I can imagine the leaders of our enemy countries smiling knowing that a sucker/loser is doing their work for them. They are probably applauding the followers and those that will not verbally oppose him. They will do anything to keep him in power and further destroy our democratic way of life.

To be for him is to want further destruction of our way of life then on to the other countries that stand in their way. Country after country will weaken and fall just like we are weak and is quickly falling. Newspapers, magazines, radio, and television will be gone. The last nail is being hammered into the coffin of the Stars and Stripes, others will follow, and WE will be at fault for it. The supporters of this President will be shoulder-to-shoulder to blame.

I can not go to a cemetery and see the gravestone of the fallen and call them “losers” because I could have proudly been one of them. Every time I am at the Veteran’s Hospital and see the sick and crippled vets, I cannot turn my head and not want to be around them or see them. They, as I, are not “suckers”. I have never said, they have never said, “screw this country, screw this President”, we served because we wanted to serve, and we are proud of it.

If we are suckers and/or losers, let the President’s followers protect him and this country the way we did. Let them do the jobs we did and have a smile on their face. Let the President do one single job that we did, and others are presently doing. Let him lead by example or has his leading come down to lying, cheating, and dishonoring those that gave their all for our futures.

No, I am neither a loser nor a sucker and would proudly serve this country again if I could. I could have run out of the country or I could have gotten a medical excuse for the pleasure of not being called a “sucker” or a “loser”. I could have let others provide me with a safe and comfortable country so that I may possibly acquire a fortune because of those that did serve and became a “loser”, a “sucker”.
