What is a Combat Flip Flop?

A Commonly Asked Question.


Hint: It’s not footwear.  

It's you.  It's us. We are Combat Flip Flops.

Wiki defines a “Political Flip Flop” here.  To save you some reading, we’ll paraphrase for you. a sudden real or apparent change of policy or opinion by a public official, sometimes while trying to claim that both positions are consistent with each other."  

So how does that apply to you?

A Combat Flip Flop is a person that believes conversation, trade, and economic policies are more beneficial than armed conflict--while supporting an ethical, highly-trained, and motivated armed forces. Extremists aren't born extremists.  They're born out of illiteracy, poverty, hunger, and hardship. And they don't rise to power by defeating the strong--they do it by exploiting the weak.   If you promote education, employment, and independence, the "terrorists" are going to have a fight on their hands. The fight is on two fronts, but I think it's best summed up with this picture. 


 We're giving peace a chance.  

They got us covered.

Hello Matt,

We’re a new Family and Veteran owned start up. would you please take a look at our Kickstarter page? I would really appreciate it if you could help spread the word of our project. Once we are up and running I would like to start getting involved with helping with as many veteran projects as possible.

Kind Regards,

I agree. Decisiveness is a commodity in desperately short supply amongst the leadership in the country today.
