Americans should support equal justice for all

I have seen and heard enough. I cannot believe how people can be appalled by a sports star kneeling on a field during the national anthem, can call them names and ask for them to fired when some of these same people think it’s justifiable to kneel on a man’s neck for almost nine minutes, until he dies and the man was already in handcuffs.

I took an oath to uphold and protect the constitution of this country when I went in the military and I served with pride. Now we have a leader in the White House who talks about sending our military against the citizens of our country. That same man also criticizes and tries to tear down military heroes like General Mattis.

I also ask you to remember that that same man in the White House I am talking about was the same one who did everything possible to not serve in the military. He has absolutely no right to say anything about any veteran or anyone’s military records.

We have to stand up to get justice for all people – not just people who can afford to buy it. I know we have to remember how important it is to get out and vote for representation for all of us, not just those who donated the most. I ask you to take a minute and think about the last few years.

Please get out and vote. It’s up to “we the people” to save this country.
