My name is Richard Santana, 21, Chicano but not free. lama common everyday person. I spent 16 months in Vietnam; luckily, as a clerk. So I had to never shoot or hurt the people of that beautiful country. I went there as a "true American?" ready to find the enemy. After awhile I soon found out that we had no business there, that the Vietnamese people didn't want us there. Spending hours at the village smoking dope I saw the Vietnamese people degrading themselves to the great American soldier. I saw the hate in their eyes when Americans passed. All this because some rich man wants more money. Then to come home to this pĆ³lice state. It was too much for my head. I have been home for 6 months on my ass. Today I read SunDance for the first time. What can I say ? It was too much. The time has come for everyone to get off their asses. I believe your party is the one to give America back to the people.
