I am not exaggerating. If anyone should disagree, please show me a better one.

Mike Banzet is not a quitter, though he says he quit.  After 22 years of active duty, Banzet retired this year as a major in the U.S. Air Force. The reason? Major Banzet was extremely displeased with the political leadership in America, i.e., the Democrats. Remember, this is a political party whose leadership despises the military.

Two days before the November mid-term elections, Major Banzet wrote a pointed letter to America's electorate that appeared in the Daily Inter Lake. Here are excerpts:

You’ve elected officials who, for partisan points, spoke openly that the ‘…war is lost.’ I happened to be in a dining facility in
that day, filled with the (mostly) young faces of (mostly) Army men and women. CNN was on the TVs, and things got very quiet when this elected official continued on, railing that the mission that some of these very people were here to do, had ‘…failed.’ Yet, they would be donning their body armor, strapping on med kits and weapons, mounting HMMVs or MRAPs and heading outside the wire, ensuring that the newborn democracy in Iraq, purchased with so many lives, would be safe another night. The newly re-invigorated insurgents would be waiting, teeth bared back in a hateful smile, gripping the IED detonator, the RPG launcher, or the AK-47s to ply their trade with new energy, because the Senate Majority Leader had said they were winning.

You elected officials who continually defame and berate military members, whether it is the observation that if you’re not too bright, you’ll get ‘…stuck in Iraq.’

You’ve elected officials in the role of commander-in-chief who ‘loathe’ the military, while using ROTC deferments and special treatment to avoid military service that the less ‘connected’ take as a responsibility.

On the basis of ‘change,’ you elected someone who had close, ongoing associations with people who were part of an organization that tried to kill us [
U.S. military] on our own soil.

You elected officials that promised to take property from some Americans, and give it to you, merely because they had more than you did.

You elect officials who openly embrace illegal activity; but they don’t have to live with the consequences.

You support an administration that leads a party that gives a standing ovation to the leader of a country that exploits our kindness and actively encourages law-breaking in our country while insulting our fellow citizens who dare to try to enforce the law.

You elect officials who are openly racist, decrying that ‘White folks’ greed drives a world in need…’ and that their own grandmother was a ‘…typical white person.’ Someone who sits in admiration as their pastor (small p; no capital letters for racists), in a church he attended for 20 years, slanders the
United States as the ‘…U.S. of KKK America’ and delights that the 9/11 ‘…chickens have come home to roost.’

You support the tactic of using the epithet of ‘racist’ as the cudgel of choice for racists who don’t like policies that conservatives advocate.

Don’t like illegal activity? Racist.

Your party insists that to provide a photo ID — proving you are who you say you are — is not only too much of a burden to ask a voter to bear, but it’s racist as well.

Don’t like a particular female’s policies? Sexist.

Yet, you support politicians who prey on 20-year old interns, seduce underage male interns, and, as a double bonus, support a person for the Supreme Court who says she is ‘wiser’ than white people because of her race and sex.”

Outstanding stuff, a must-read.
