In the mid 50’s, the large B-36 bomber was called the Peacemaker for the Cold War because it was the backbone of the USAF Strategic Air Command at Carswell Air Force Base. Our military might at that time was the world’s peacemaker, as the Russian bear did not go into hibernation until President Reagan became commander-in-chief.

These forces have been reduced to pre-WWII size by the current commander-in-chief. Is that why the current Russian bear laughed at the rest of world as it ate its own cub, Crimea? Who’s next Mr. President?

Starting in November, voters need to go back to the polls, not to the streets, and place our current commander-in-chief in hibernation.

Our grandchildren do not have the military for us to be able to sleep at night. There’s a bear out there. We still have the communists in Russia, China, Cuba, North Korea, Nicaragua and elsewhere in the western hemisphere and the rest of the world.
