Vet: Open Letter to Karl Rove
I spent 11 years serving this country with distinction in the Army. I come from generations of soldiers who have fought in every war this country has had. My ancestors fled from an oppressive government in the mid 18th century after fighting the Second Jacobite Rebellion. My forebearer Sir Robert Keith led the cavalry charge that dispersed the archers that led to defeat the English king at the Battle of Banockburn. My family fought along side of William “Braveheart” Wallace.
I’m liberal because I want a government of the people, for the people. I want a government that serves the common good. I want my taxes to help the community and make it stronger. I want a government that stands for our founders cries for Liberty and Justice! That Fat F#$k Rove (capitals because it is now a proper name I use for
him)questions my Patriotism?!?! He is the traitor. He is the Tory. He has committed sedition. Even after he’s passed on, I will remember his name and make sure it remains in disgrace. I will not allow one person in my presence to ever again justify any support of this craven coward. I want his ass serving on the front line. Fat F#$k...Look me in the eye when you say it!
Question my Nationalism! Question my Imperialism! Question my Fascism! But Never!, Never!, question my Patriotism.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt
