Subject: "HOT-OFF-THE-PRESS" - EVIDENCE REVEALS HOW LAWMAKERS GET AWAY WITH BEING CORRUPT AND SELLING OUT ITS VETERANS AND OTHER AMERICANS...

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN HERE IS HOW AND WHY CONGRESS, THE PRESIDENT AND OTHER POLITICIANS GET AWAY WITH THEIR CORRUPTION, PORK-BARREL SPENDING, AND THEIR FAILURE TO APPROPRIATE MANDATORY VA FUNDING AND OTHER BENEFITS FOR VETERANS
 
UNITED STATES CENSUS BUREAU REPORT FOR THE YEARS INDICATED
 
PERCENT OF ALL ELIGIBLE U.S. CITIZENS WHO DID NOT REGISTER TO VOTE AND WHO ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE BUT DID NOT VOTE:
34.1% of the U.S. Population who are eligible to Vote DID NOT REGISTER VOTE.
41.7% of all Voters who are registered to Vote DID NOT VOTE.

PERCENT OF ALL ELIGIBLE VETERANS WHO DID NOT REGISTER TO VOTE AND WHO ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE BUT DID NOT VOTE:
20.5% of the all U.S. VETERANS who are eligible to Vote DID NOT REGISTER TO VOTE.
41.6% of VETERANS who registered to Vote DID NOT VOTE.

As long as these large percentages of Veterans and other Americans do not register to vote and then fail to vote once they are registered, thereby allowing the same "Corrupt"  Lawmakers to keep getting "Re-Elected" rather than being replaced by "PATRIOTS," the Lawmakers will continue to do what is in their best interests rather than what's in the best interests of Veterans and other Americans, regardless of the Political Party of which they are affiliated.
 
You may not like what I point out here.  But it's THE TRUTH. 
 
Sincerely,
Terry Richards
