John is a firefighter and a patriot. But unlike the people who run the republican party these days, he doesn't go on and on about it. And he doesn't buy into fear mongering, either; he just quietly does the work that makes this country great. Oh, and he's a democrat.
Don't believe that the right wing thinks this way? Check out this quote from Mitt Romney:
"[Obama] says we need more fireman, more policeman, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.” ~ Mitt Romney
And just in case you enjoy Mr. Tea Party himself, Rush Limbaugh, here's what he thinks of everyday American heroes:
"teaching jobs, firemen, policemen — they are all paid for with money out of the private sector. They are paid for with tax revenue from citizens. They cut into the amount of money left for private sector. They don’t grow the number of private sector jobs, they reduce them." ~ Rush Limbaugh
So, for any folks who want to rumble over this, please do your homework to find out where the republican party stands.
