How could America’s Veterans forget the events of August 26, 2021? After two decades of waging war in Afghanistan, the American government began executing its doomed withdrawal from the country in the summer of last year.
Instead of an orderly, competent execution worthy of the sacrifice made by America’s troops, what unfolded on that day in August was chaos. Mobs outside the Kabul Airport, Afghans hanging from the wheels of American planes, and worst of all, the deadliest day for US troops in a decade. That billions in cutting edge military equipment was left to the enemy was just the cherry on top.
After such a shameful disaster, could things have really gotten much worse for the Biden Administration? Apparently, yes.
Within six months of the Afghan humiliation, Americans once again witnessed the failures of this administration when Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine. Undeterred by threats of sanctions, Putin’s forces began its quest to carve the country up.
With no effective strategy to neither prevent nor resolve the conflict, Biden now sends billions of taxpayer dollars into a new quagmire with no end in sight. And it’s one that may lead to the largest global conflict since WWII.
Perhaps we could focus on China’s posturing over control of Taiwan. Or point out North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un’s brazen missile launches over allied Japan. Record inflation or the self-inflicted energy crisis. You name it!
No matter where we look, the outcome remains the same. The extreme liberal leadership of President Biden and the Democrats has weakened America’s position on the world stage and is destroying its standard of living at home.
As a Veteran, you have served your country honorably in its time of need. This November, it is time to answer the call once again and cast your vote in the 2022 Midterm Election.
To put it plainly, it’s time to end the madness!
November provides voters the best opportunity to begin getting our country back on track. But research shows that midterm elections often yield lower turnout than presidential elections.
For example, data provided by Statista illustrates that in our last cycle, 60 percent of the eligible voting population came out to vote in the 2016 Presidential Election, but only 50 percent showed up two years later to vote in the 2018 Midterm Election. This is a trend that has remained consistent for over 150 years!
While it is inevitable that some voters will sit out an election, or never vote at all, it doesn’t mean you have to be one of them. Every vote matters and by mobilizing our votes we can change the outcome of an election and send a message to this failed leadership.
In the coming weeks it is our goal to begin mobilizing as many of these Veteran votes as possible. We will be reaching out to hundreds of thousands of Veterans in key states to galvanize their vote and make a difference. We hope that you will be one of them!
On Tuesday, November 8, take a stand and vote!
