    Why I'm Glad Not To Belong To The VFW

    There's an increasing uproar happening within the membership of the VFW that I really wasn't aware of until I was pointed here.

    Getting questions and emails on whether we realize there is a difference between VFW and VFW-PAC.  Well, there is and there isn't.  Let me just say this- if the local VFW chapters, to include the states, are willing to let National allow their PAC to push this type of agenda and these types of candidates, well, bad on them for just standing by.  They should be rioting over it.  Holding their dues payments where they can.  Put pressure on National to adhere to what the LOCALS want, not what National may think 'is best'.  Because to do otherwise is utter bullshiite.

    To us, this is not an issue of VFW-PAC vs. VFW.  They are the same- don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    So, which politicians in Michigan is the VFW funneling monies to?


    Camp, Dave (R)
    Dingell, John (D)
    Kildee, Dale (D)
    Levin, Sander (D)

    McCotter, Thaddeus (R)
    Miller, Candice (R)
    Peters, Gary (D)
    Rogers, Mike (R)
    Schauer, Mark (D)
    Upton, Fred (R)

    Some other VFW funded politicians?

    Boxer, Barbara (D)
    Pelosi, Nancy (D)
    Waxman, Henry (D)
    Grayson, Alan (D)
    Wasserman Schultz, Debbie (D)
    Jackson, Jesse (D)
    Rush, Bobby (D)
    Reid, Harry (D)
    McCarthy, Carolyn (D)
    Schumer, Charles (D)
    Sestak, Joe (D)
    Jackson Lee, Sheila (D)
    Leahy, Patrick (D)
    McDermott, Jim (D)

    And of all people the Veterans of Foreign Wars chose not to support...

    Unbelievably, the VFW is funding the Democrat who never served opponent of Ret. LTC Allen West.

    I am so glad to be a member of the American Legion and not the VFW.

    fan of Bush 41, but he was a decorated WWII veteran.  I remember when the VFW endorsed Clinton instead of Bush 41 in 1992.

    God help us!

    Was it this...

    ...or this one sentence of denial from here...

      --  The VFW PAC was created by the VFW members and not by VFW national leaders.

    ...that 6 days later, changed the National Commander's "tone and tenor"?  Me thinks it was National blaming the members for commies running the PAC.

    I'm tellin' yah... the people have had more that enough of the bullsh!t.

    I see several Marxists on the list as well as a former Black Panther that spent time in prison as the result of a shootout with the Chicago police. He is also the author of the Blair-Holt firearms registration bill. I can say that most of the Marxist on this list never have served in uniform but have spent a good deal of their professional careers condemning and sniping at the US military. There is also one human shield and former member of the Bagdhad twins along with former Congressman and disgrace to this state David Bonior. So the VFW-PAC is supporting anti-war, blame America first Marxists who would love to see America as a third world power and are working very hard towards that end. Nice.

    Conservative Teacher's blog This Blog: VFW Endorsement of Peters Causes VFW Members to Dissolve VFW PAC!

    "That should tell you something about how bad of a candidate Gary Peters is and about how offensive it was to veterans in the VFW that he was given its endorsement- they were so upset with the endorsement that they decided to completely dissolve their PAC rather than stand for the endorsement of people like Gary Peters."
