Rolling Thunder

I was pretty psyched about posting on these Rolling Thunder cats because they're veterans, in general, but they openly criticize their government. True patriots, I thought. But I just found out that they are going to endorse Bush again for the Presidency. I understand a lot of people bought into the marketing in 2000, but now, after all we've been through?

The purpose of Rolling Thuder is supposedly to draw attention to veterans issues, specifically the issue of POW's - how and why to keep looking for them, etc. So, Bush dodges the Vietnam draft, and he attempts to cut veterans benefits at every turn. What should Rolling Thunder do? Endorse Bush for President, of course!

Patriots, my ass.
