Good Soldier = Progressive Democrat

Kos explains how his military service made him wise-up to the bullshit of the Bush Crime Family and the right-wing:
There's a reason most vets running for office this year are running as Democrats. The military is perhaps the ideal society -- we worked hard but the Army took care of us in return. All our basic needs were met -- housing, food, and medical care. It was as close to a color-blind society as I have ever seen. We looked out for one another. The Army invested in us...

... The Army taught me the very values that make us progressives -- community, opportunity, and investment in people and the future.

Returning to Bush Senior's America, I was increasingly disillusioned by the selfishness, lack of community, and sense of entitlement inherent in the Republican philosophy. The Christian Coalition scared the heck out of me. And I was offended by the lip service paid to national service when most Republicans couldn't be bothered to wear combat boots. I voted for Bush in 1992, but that was the last time I voted Republican.

I personally wish we all could "come as we are" and not have to conform to one of these 2 parties in order to get elected. A two-sided mafia runs the U.S. government, but running as a Democrat is the best available option for turning back the damage cause by the Bush Crime Family. Kos' explanation couldn't have been better.

Support the dozens of service men/women who are fighting on the front lines of this government take-over by the neo-con rat bastards who are selling us all out for a profit!
