Marine vet: "I upheld my oath to this country ... will you uphold yours?"

David Hedreick, a young Marine veteran, said it all at a townhall meeting in Vancouver, Washington. Read his remarks ... watch the video. I can add nothing more except ... Semper Fi!

From Newsbusters we learn from this Marine the background of the the townhall meeting:
"I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy."
Newsbusters continues:
On August 5, Congressman Brian Baird (D-Wash.) likened recent town hall meeting protesters to Nazis:

“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics. I mean that very seriously.”

On Tuesday, at such a political gathering in Vancouver, a Marine Corps veteran named David William Hedrick blasted the Congressman for this disgraceful depiction.

What follows is a video from this town hall meeting in Washington state that every person in America — especially those on the Left and their media minions who continue to shamefully besmirch average citizens for having the nerve to oppose the government takeover of healthcare!!! — should be required to view.
David Hedrick's remarks were spot on and an affirmation that the Silent Majority is stepping forward and being silent no more. New faces ... new voices ... one by one, ordinary citizens are stepping to the plate to stand up for this country and speak out against an overreaching government.

Virginia Family Foundation blog has also posted about this incident.
