Jack Murphy wrote a piece titled Veterans, not even war heroes, are as sacred as Americans try to pretend they are. As a military brat/spouse of a lifetime to include many, many years, it is easy to understand Jack’s feelings toward John McCain and Thomas McInerney. I have my own issues with #HeroWorship regardless of the job a person holds, especially when it comes to politics, see: The Candidate: Scrutinize every Military Veteran and ask tough, pointed questions.
Additional thoughts about McCain from the late, David H. Hackworth in January 2000:
What do you do with the people you voted into power, or maybe you did not vote them into power because the candidate of your choice was far more fiscally conservative, and now those you did not vote for are, seemingly, in a drunken stupor over their perceived power and control to manipulate and gerrymander the legislative process?
I remember when, and still believe, Mitch McConnell lied to Ted Cruz.

Now there are those pushing for Tax Reform. But what about fully repealing Obamacare as essential to serious tax reform?
Get out your copy of The Declaration of Independence. Read it and then read this:

America is not a country for servile men and women. We not only have a right to be free, but a duty to be free. For “when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
