Kerry is a fraud

This election could be the most important in our history. The president of this country should have, at minimum, the qualifications of veracity, honesty, and patriotism. John Kerry has none of the above. The written records, witness’s testimony, even his own words themselves prove that.

He did not volunteer for duty in Vietnam; he joined the Navy to avoid the Army draft (as many did), then was sent to Vietnam. What duties he performed there, I dunno, wasn’t there. But the records show that the medals he “earned,” and brags about, were the results of his own devious report-writing. However, they were enough for him to say, after four months of “service to his country,” ‘I’m outa here!’

At that point, he began two decades of desecrating the uniform, denouncing those he left in Vietnam as “Baby killers” (words he coined), teaming up with Jane Fonda, a traitor if there ever was one to castigate and harass those left behind, even in Vietnamese prisons, and then spending 19 years in Congress denying our military funding for virtually every tool, weapon, and the financial support they need to keep our country military strong.

Presidential candidate John Kerry is a fraud.
