Can You Spare the Time to Vote?


War                            No. of  Years              No. Killed


Revolutionary                 8                                  4,435


War of 1812                    3                                2,260


Civil                                4                              140,414 (North only)


WW I                             1,5                              53,000


WWII                             5 291,557


Korean                           3                               33,739


Vietnam                      11 47,434


Gulf/Iraq/Afghan          8+                              3,662


                                    40.5+ years                576,501            


Forty plus years out of America’s 236 years as a nation.  Over half a million lives – 576,501 – given in the cause for freedom.  Never mind that malarkey from Hollywood about how the soldiers were only giving their lives for each other.  What a dishonor to every soldier who ever fought for our country to say such a thing.  Only since the Vietnam War, which the Media and Walter Cronkite helped us lose, have veterans uttered such disgraceful words.

They gave their years and their lives for freedom. Think you can spare about 15 minutes to go and vote?
