Would You Want A President With PTSD?

WHEN MIGHT A MAN [A WAR HERO A POW SURIVOR)
have a PTSD EVENT...A flashback? A outburst of anger?}



P.T.S.D. is no joking matter. This is an illness that is profound
and and can be lifelong, usually requiring medications to keep
(it) under control! ARE THE PEOPLES nominated for
Leadership of this Great Nation required to disclose any
and ALL Prescription MEDICATIONS They are taking?

I NEED TO KNOW THIS Answer? I believe we all know drugs
can alter mood anxiety,...and if not taken can, CAUSE very
unpleasant episodes. I would not want anyone in this position to
have rely on these types of medications for optimal performance,
because without them they become less efficient and think in a
different manner!

My reason! I know that all medications can stop working for any
number of reasons and before a replacement can be found the
person in question may not be in there right mind as we know it!

I feel Senator McCain, has does his best to keep it under control,
or at least, keep the knowledge of it out of the Public View. Why?
It is also my understanding he has released Medical information
which is required for a Presidential nominee. However, we know
very little about His Psychiatric History and medications which
should also be required. As a Vietnam Veteran, with PTSD,
and on several medications, I feel this is also justifiable.

Remember the way he clenched hid jaw so often when debating
Obama, his inability to look at him with respect in his face, I feel
has a deeper significance then just trying to win. I feel that was
the only way he could maintain control of his emotions. PSTD
manifests itself in many ways, uncontrollable anger and many
other ways and has many different features> More info on
PSTD, best source I am aware of:
(the DSM VI American VERSION)

In addition to all of this there's his nasty sense of humor aimed
as hurtful humor that jokes of rape, bigotry or prejudice or the
fact that that McCain twice attempted suicide as he
reported to his doctors in his recently disclosed medical reports.
All of this really begs the question IS John McCain really
mentally fit and rational enough to be president?

This is a difficult question that voters need to seriously answer.
Plus should the McCain Campaign be more forthcoming with
any mental health records, as this information is just as
important if not more so, than the health records they have
so far released.

The U.S. needs a president who seriously weighs when to
actually use military power only when necessary and not one
who sings a song parody of a Beach Boys song,
"Bomb,Bomb, Bomb Iran" when asked a question about
the Iranian nuclear program. The U.S. has the most
powerful military and nuclear arsenal in the world.
Voters need to be darn sure that the person with their
finger on the "red" button has good mental health and
anger management.

How DO WE KNOW ; THAT HE WON'T HAVE A POST
TRAUMATIC EVENT AT A CRITICAL MOMENT IN
TIME! WHAT IF HE HAD A FLASHBACK BACK
TO THE ATROCITIES HE LIVED THROUGH?

Countries like Iran are always going to do nonsense things
to anger the U.S., however this cannot be used as some
justification to take some bold step from which there is no
easy return. Sticky situations like Vietnam and Iraq are
very easy to get into, but famously difficult to exit from.
There's no "I'm just kidding" excuse once U.S. troops or
even worse, nuclear missiles are sent off to answer
something.

Kennedy was famous for the nuclear war that he avoided
with the Soviet Union over the Cuban Missile Crisis in
1962. From what we know of John McCain's reasoning,
judgment, TEMPERMENT and poor anger management
skills, who could really say that McCain would be able to
get the same positive outcome if he had been in the same
position as president.

Would the other presidential candidate be
treated with the same indifference if he had an
attempted suicide in HIS biography?
