RE: DONALD TRUMP CALLS FOR NFL BOYCOTT

Dear Editor:

I have fought for this country, I have bled for it.  I’ve watched my friends die for this country.

No one asked me to, no one asked them to – we volunteered.  I believe in free speech and all of the liberties granted by our Constitution.  If you want to protest then protest – that is your right and from the Revolutionary War up until the current wars we have fought to defend every right.

I will not support anyone disrespecting my service nor the service of my friends that have died or been wounded by putting down the symbol of  what founded this nation.  So keep blaming everything on “the establishment” and injustice on the police.  I’m tired of hearing about it.

If you don’t want to live in this country then leave.  Yes, there are bad cops.  Yes, there are people that don’t behave as they should in every profession.  So to all the players that hate the symbols of this country, take your million dollar or more a year making ass somewhere else.

I don’t agree with everything the president says, but I will not burn a business or start a riot because of it.

Take responsibility for your actions and start living in the real world.  And the same goes to anyone else that doesn’t support liberty and justice.  You can all leave – we will be better off without you.

The NFL can kiss my ass.

Sincerely,

FED UP VETERAN
Cameron, S.C.
