Veteran betrayed

As an American citizen and a veteran, I believe the executive, legislative and judicial branches of our government have put this great nation in jeopardy. They have become corporate agents and have trampled on the Constitution of the United States.

Both the Democratic and Republican political parties do not care about the 99 percent of the population. Their main interest is to gain as much financial and corrupt power as possible. The love of money and their lies will be the downfall of this great country.

I do also believe that the code of ethics in media for responsible journalism has disappeared. The media was to be the watch dogs of a corrupt government. The main mantra of the code is “Seek truth and report it.”

When I took the oath of enlistment to become a member of the military, I did solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United Sates against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. So help me God!

John C. Wodynski
