Why Richard Burr Has my Vote

I’m not a person who ever votes for (or against) any candidate based on only one issue – but, this is one that comes close to crossing that border. I am an Army veteran, Medic. I’m a few years to young to have gone to Vietnam, but I knew many guys who did.

I’m sure you don’t care about sympathy, but please know you have my understanding and encouragement to persevere. FYI – modern medicine really fails when trying to give a life-expectancy estimate. My father (not a military veteran) was diagnosed with a degenerative form of arthritis that was expected to be fatal within 5 years – 32 years ago. He still lives. There is always hope.

  1. According to wikipedia, “Burr’s father, a minister, said that Burr is a 12th cousin of Aaron Burr, the former Vice-President, Senator, lawyer, and Continental Army officer known most for defeating Founding Father Alexander Hamilton in an 1804 duel.”
