Iraq Veterans for Congress

Here are some veterans running for congress worthy of consideration.

I have pretty much given up on voting for any of the candidates for president in this year's election; however, I still feel it is important to vote for the congressional races.

The only thing that will be able to hold the executive branch in check will be the congress, and not a congress made up of Democrats who only seem interested in issuing so many statements of support for our enemies, insisting on investigations of everything from the stuffing in teddy bears to steroids instead of the actual job you were sent to do.

Here are some veterans running for congress in various districts on the Republican ticket. Some of the names may be familiar, each has their story, but more importantly, I think they have a better grasp on what is needed to address the problems this country faces in the 21st century. For those who care to look at a calender it is 2008 not 1960 and old rhetoric and solutions are not going to solve the problems of the present.

Please take a few minutes to check them out, regardless of your party persuasion and you just might find somebody who better represents you then your current congress critter. It is time to get rid of the old senior citizens roaming the halls of congress. Even if your guy is Obama, who is all about change, how you going to accomplish that if you still have the same old hard line politicians in place?

Let's throw out all of the incumbents and get people who will move us forward and quit all the whining.

If there is one thing our military has proven it is they have the ability to adapt and overcome any obstacle and that is exactly what is needed. I wish our congress was as nimble and efficient as the military.
