Thank You Swiftees (Vanity)
Vanity ^ | 12/21/2005 | MarineBrat

Posted on 12/21/2005 5:21:41 PM PST by MarineBrat

 

While I am not a member of the Swift Boat Veterans and POW's for Truth, I was a financial and moral supporter of theirs during the last presidential election.  I will be forever indebted to them for standing up to that lying weasel "Hanoi" John Kerry.  I'm constantly reminded by stories here at FR about the bullet that we dodged, and I'm still completely astounded that he got as close as he did to being Commander In Chief of the US Armed Forces.  Thank you Dear God for summoning your angels to head off that disaster of a man.

My first ever visit to FreeRepublic was after seeing a link on the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth message forum.  I'm thankful to them for that as well!

So anyway, I thought maybe it'd be good for us all to remember just what it looks like when old soldiers arise to the occasion and give up their time and ease of mind to stand in harms way for their country.  THANK YOU SWIFTEES!  Every one of you is a true American Hero, and your Christmas gift to US pays off every single day!

Merry Christmas, God Bless the Swiftees, and God Bless the United States of America!

I dont care about whether he earned his medals or not. As far as I am concerned, he served his country. After that, he deserved every one of those commercials. He had to be the first presidential candidate that could go through a whole campaign without mentioning his senate career and the press wasnt even a bit curious why

Stand by, though, the Rat will certainly make another run at the Dummie nomination in '08 -- and Dummie's being, well, Dummies, we may well have not seen the end of this moral equivalent of pond scum. Bad pennies and aged gigolo's never seem to disappear for good.

Thanks Marine Brat for all those great links. I was a financial supporter of the swiftees too and still have all the stubs they sent me. Eventually I will frame them. It was absolutely the best money I have ever spent.

John Kerry is vomit. Worse than a draft dodger...in fact it would have been nice if he did dodge the draft and saved so many good people from the misery he so selfishly doled out during and after his service in the Navy.

Just thought it was worth repeating.

"the Rat will certainly make another run at the Dummie nomination in '08"

Imagine the primaries when Hillary makes mincemeat outta him.

At ease, Swifties.

However, you are not yet "dismissed".

As you know Sailors, you may yet be recalled for duty.

That is all.

The liberal press gave Kerry a pass like they gave Bill Clinton a pass on Clinton's medical records.

Can you imagine running for President without having to produce your medical records. - Tom

Thanks for the tribute... These guys put their lives and fortunes on the line forty years ago, then had to do it again. Lies wouldn't stand with these men. They spoke truth without hesitation. And the world changed. We are in their debt...

The Swift Boat Vets revealed more truth than the RNC could. Supporting them was good money well spent. I don't know of any other campaign contribution I made that was more effective. God Bless all those good men for being so brave and telling it like it was.

What really made my blood boil was when that schmuck John McCain called these great Americans "dishonest and dishonorable".

That's when he lost the '08 nomination.

I sent them three donations. It was money well spent.

I am pleased to note that I have not received any solicitations since.

Amen. I believe the Swiftees saved America.
Hear that, Kerry? THOSE men are the brave ones. Their commitment to exposing your fraud is seared, seared into my memory forever.
God Bless You, Swiftees. SOTG

I'm another old sailor who served at the Cam Rahn Bay Swift Boat support facility in 1970. I was proud to serve these heros.

I went on to complete a 26 year career in the Navy. During that time, I did run across a few junior officers like Kerry....but by and large the Navy has a pretty good system for culling them out. The ones they didn't manage to discharge seemed to be the folks that were political enough to be selected for Admiral.

Nicely done, and concur. I sent 150% more money to the SBVT than I did the Bush campaign, and I feel it was well spent.

I remember doing the screen capture for the "Friends" ad for SwiftVets.com -- I tried about 20 different frames of Kerry before I found one with the perfect nightmarish quality I was looking for...
