Not Voting? Explain That to American War Dead!


If you're one of the Americans who aren't going to vote to "protest" the Republicans' tepid defense of conservative principles, think again.

Approximately 1.3 million American soldiers, sailors and pilots didn't die in America's wars so you could sit on your butt and pout. They didn't fight and die at Bunker's Hill, Gettysburg, Belleau Wood, Pork Chop Hill, Khe Sahn or Fallujah so you could act like a spoiled dick or one of those pretentious asses who think that not voting makes them somehow morally superior.

Tens of thousands of anonymous Americans who went in harm's way and who now lie under the sod or the sea gave their lives and their futures so America might survive tyranny and Americans might continue to enjoy freedom. You know, freedom, as in the right to worship as you please, associate with whom you please, pursue happiness and seek your own destiny free from the dictates of tyrants. And yes, to vote for whom you please.

So if you're protesting by not voting, as soon as the radical Left Democrats seize control of the country, go visit your local cemetery. Find the military section, walk among the headstones and say, "Thanks for your sacrifice! Thanks for NOTHING!"

Because if you sit at home and pout on election day, that's exactly what you are saying to our war dead.
