FIRST THEM CAME FOR Graphic #2 homeless vet

First they came for the Veterans’ benefits.

They said, “Because you no longer protect or serve, we’re cutting your pensions, your benefits, and closing your commissaries.”

The Veterans asked, “What about the promises you made?”

They were told, “Your country is running out of money.

The Veterans said, “If that is true, why do illegals receive welfare and food stamps?”

They were told. “That’s not your concern. Just trust us. We’ll do the right thing. Your government will take care of you.”

They lied.

Americans (who were not Veterans) didn’t stand up and speak out and so . . .

THEY CAME FOR the medical care of sick and wounded Veterans.

They said, “Take a number and wait.”

The Veterans asked, “What about the promises you made?”

They were told. “Your country is running out of money.

The Veterans said, “If that is true, why do VA administrators receive bonuses while we wait and die without receiving medical care?”

They were told, “That’s not your concern. Be patient. Fill out the forms. Just trust us. We’ll do the right thing. Your government will take care of you.”

They lied.

Americans (who were not Veterans in need of medical care) didn’t stand up and speak out and so . . .

THEY CAME FOR Social Security benefits.

They said to the Senior Citizens, “Because you no longer contribute to the greater good, you will not receive a cost of living increase.”

The Senior Citizens replied, “But, we worked, followed the rules, and placed our money into the Social Security Fund lockbox. You agreed to guard our contributions. Instead, you “borrowed” our money and never repaid it.”

They were told, “Your country is running out of money.”

The senior citizens asked, “If that is true, why do able-bodied adults, who chose not to work, receive increased entitlements?”

They said. “That’s not your concern. Just trust us. We’ll do the right thing. Your government will take care of you.”

They lied.

Americans (who were not Senior Citizens) didn’t stand up and speak out and so . . .

THEY CAME FOR everyone’s healthcare.

What were the promises made?

The promised broken?

When will we-the-people stand up and speak out against the massive dishonesty
