    I'd say respect your brothers and sisters in arms regardless of their political choices. It's not like the Democrats are clean on the issue of veteran's either.

    By refusing to respect and support a fellow veteran based on their politics you are playing into a party system meant to shape your ideology and thus your world view. That bond of service should never be broken by anything so petty.

      If you just say you are going to respect everybody equally  it makes respect meaningless. I respect what people do if its positive and lose respect for people including other veterans if they act irresponsibly.

      Respect and support aren't always the same thing. A Democrat can help somebody they have no respect for, somebody with an addiction or bad habits, someone with no respect for themselves, somebody who needs healthcare or social security or education maybe unemployment insurance or a way out of prison, someone who needs a way to change their life and earn respect.

      I consider being a Republican requires selfishness and the stupidity of self delusion, exactly the opposite of service. The suppression of other peoples right to vote is cowardly. The denial of climate change foolish, but its not too late to straighten out and become respectable. We can help you here.
