USA: Libertarian veterans call for end to drug war and VA restructuring

Veterans and supporters of the Libertarian party held a demonstration calling for a restructuring of the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and an end to the drug war before heading to the Libertarian party convention in New Orleans on Sunday. «We have 20 veterans committing suicide every single day in this country, and especially when Democrats and Republicans in power don't seem to care about... Еще this, it's all the more important that we call attention to this issue, and support those who are doing something about it,» said Adam Kokesh, a Libertarian activist and former RT America television host. «The answer is simple: end the drug war, free the VA (Veterans Affairs) and the LP, the Libertarian party, is the only party that represents a position that veterans can get behind on this issue,» he continued. Larry Sharpe, a candidate for Governor in New York State, who also attended the event, said «the VA needs to be shut down and rebooted from scratch. The idea that it controls as much as it controls is embarrassing to our country.»
