This guy was a Marine?

Marine Corps veteran Moulton joins 2020 presidential race

U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton from Massachusetts is the latest Democrat to jump in the race for the White House.
The Massachusetts lawmaker and Iraq War veteran made the announcement Monday.
“I’m here to tell you and to tell America that I’m running for president of the United States,” Moulton said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Moulton said he wanted to run a presidential campaign that would “bring this country back together,” talking “about patriotism, about security, about service.”

"These are issues that for too long Democrats have ceded to Republicans," he said.
Moulton first came to prominence in 2014 when he unseated long-term incumbent Rep. John Tierney in a Democratic primary and went on to represent the state's 6th Congressional District, a swath of communities north of Boston including Salem, home of the infamous colonial-era witch trials.
Speculation about a possible Moulton run has been simmering as far back as 2017 when he spoke at a Democratic political rally in Iowa, home of the first-the-the-nation presidential caucuses. At the time, he brushed aside talk of a president.

Talk of possible run ramped up during last year's election when the former U.S. Marine helped lead an effort to get other Democratic military veterans to run for Congress — a cause he continues to push.
"16 years ago today, leaders in Washington sent me and my friends to fight in a war based on lies. It's still going on today," Moulton said in a recent tweet. "It's time for the generation that fought in Iraq to take over for the generation that sent us there."
The 40-year-old Moulton also gained national attention for helping lead an effort within the party to reject Nancy Pelosi as House speaker after Democrats regained control of the chamber. Moulton said it was time for new leadership.
Moulton has also been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump — from foreign policy, including Trump's recent veto of a resolution to end U.S. military assistance in Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen, to his push for a wall at the southern border.
And when Trump claimed to be the target of the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history," Moulton responded that "as the Representative of Salem, MA, I can confirm that this is false."

Despite occasionally differing with some on the most liberal wing of the party, Moulton has staked out familiar policy positions for those seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
He's called health care "a right every American must be guaranteed," pushed to toughen gun laws, was a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, has championed a federal "Green Corps" modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s, and has called for an end to the Electoral College.
Money could prove a challenge to Moulton, who has raised $255,000 so far this year and had about $723,000 in his campaign account as of the end of March.
Moulton is now the third political figure from Massachusetts to take a stab at a White House run. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren — a Democrat — and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld — a Republican — are also running.

Moulton supports same-sex marriage and abortion rights.He supports increased gun control.
Cybersecurity
In September 2018, Moulton co-sponsored, together with Elise Stefanik and Dan Donovan, the "Cyber Ready Workforce Act" advanced by Jacky Rosen. The legislation would create a grant program within the Department of Labor to "create, implement and expand registered apprenticeships" in cybersecurity. It aims to offer certifications and connect participants with businesses in order to "boost the number" of workers for federal jobs in said trade.
Transportation policy
Moulton is the driving force behind the North-South Rail Link, a project aimed at uniting Boston's north and south-side MBTA Commuter Rail lines, decongesting its subway lines, and linking the commuter rail to Logan International Airport via the Blue Line. He is an avid proponent of public transportation and frequently rides the commuter rail.
Economic policy
Energy policy
Moulton supports the expansion of nuclear energy.
Views on President Trump
In a March 2016 interview with The Boston Globe, Moulton compared the rise of the Republican presidential front-runner, Donald Trump, with Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1930s. Moulton said that, in order to understand how an educated society "can elect a demagogue," voters should read about how the German people elected Hitler in the early 20th century.[53]
Gun policy[edit]
On June 15, 2016, Moulton appeared on the cover of the New York Daily News with the statement "No Civilian Should Own This Gun" in reference to semi-automatic assault weapons. The cover pictures Moulton during a deployment to Iraq, carrying an issued M4 carbine.[55] The particular gun in the picture has never been legal for civilians to own due to the "Hughes Amendment" in 1986.[citation needed]
Moulton penned an opinion piece promoting gun control, including the statement: "There's simply no reason for a civilian to own a military-style assault weapon. It's no different than why we outlaw civilian ownership of rockets and landmines."
2020 presidential campaign.
Main article: Seth Moulton 2020 presidential campaign
Moulton has been seen as a potential candidate for the Democratic nomination in 2020.[57] He was seen traveling in early primary states such as Iowa and New Hampshire in March 2019.[3] It was announced that he would make a formal announcement on his candidacy before April 24.
Moulton officially announced his candidacy on April 22, 2019, with his website being updated that day to show it was paid for by "Seth Moulton for America."
During an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, just after announcing his run for president, Moulton said, "I’m not a socialist. I’m a Democrat. And I want to make that clear."[

Folks like this boot licker are not my countrymen nor my concern , always remember Benedict Arnold , was the hero of Fort Ticonderoga during the Revolutionary War and the Cannons captured there helped turn the tide of the War and most were used at Yorktown to shell the British to surrender. But in the end Arnold died a traitor in ENGLAND. He betrayed his country and his Army for 30 pieces of silver. Actually I believe it was 10,000 pounds of Gold. But you get the point and this boot licker is not the only traitor there are plenty more of both the D and R turd eater variety in the last few years SEMPER FIDELIS!
