Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

Who will you vote for in the 2012 presidential elections?

Obama or Romney?

You hold out both hands palms up and someone places turd A in one hand and turd B in the other hand and then asks you which one you like the most. Apparently you, NP, would seriously consider both turds and then pick one over the other. Brilliant!

Bigger margin than I thought there would be voting for Obama among the forum veterans.

Still, likely not representative of the military on the whole.

Possibly, still the majority of post 9/11 vets did not think the Iraq war was worth it, and Obama ended the Iraq war when Romney thought we should stay, Obama helped get Veteran's benefits increased, and he ended the the stop loss policy which was sending troops on repeated tours, some as many as seven with little time between.

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

I scare myself even considering voting for Obama.

But Romney scares me even more with his attitude that we are going to have to "take care" of Iran.

Im not saying Obama wouldn't put us in that position...... I'm saying Romney seems to be talking about it proudly, almost like he has been trying to pick a fight.



PLUS: I just wanted to troll your poll.

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

I was also a little skeptical at the number of "military" who selected Obama in the poll_

No offense guys, but most liberals are simply too wussified to serve in the military_

Can you imagine a liberal stationed in a country with no Starbucks, much less in a combat zone_

This liberal has done more to serve their country than you will ever do. You just made one of the most retarded posts in the history of DP. Good job.

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

Let me tell you something my left wing friend and I want you to concentrate like a laser beam..........I did not agree with the Bush spending but it pales to the spendind of Hussein Obama who has spent more then all the other presidents combined.......One more thing My vote for GWB was more a vote against 2 of the biggest incompetents ever to run for prez. One Kerry a traitor to this country.............I hope that explains it to y ou.....

You just called Ikari left wing. That is painfully silly. Ikari is 100 times more conservative than you will ever be.

By my count it is at least 10 to 4. Not sure how that qualifies as close. Maybe in the bizzaro world where Ikari is a liberal the word close means something different.

I find it extremely ironic that some so called conservatives consider spending as much as the rest of the world combined on the military, a conservative position.

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

I read some voter purge going on in Florida depriving veterans the right to vote.

Bill Internicola is a 91-year-old, Brooklyn-born, World War II veteran. He fought in the Battle of the Buldge and received the Bronze Star for bravery. He’s voted in Florida for 14 years and never had a problem.

Three weeks ago, Bill received a letter from Broward County Florida stating “[Y]ou are not a U.S. Citizen” and therefore, ineligible to vote. He was given the option of requesting “a hearing with the Supervisor of Elections, for the purpose of providing proof that you are a United States citizens” or forfeit his right to vote.

This decorated World War II veteran is just one of hundreds of fully eligible U.S. citizens being targeted by Governor Scott’s massive voter purge just prior to this year’s election, according to data obtained from Florida election officials by ThinkProgress. The purge list, according to an analysis by the Miami Herald, targets mostly Democrats and Hispanics.

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

I can sort of imagine NP sitting there, consumed in the idea that pot shots at Obama on the internet actually matter, thinking to himself, "Hmm, what can I post to beat on Obama, that I can actually win? I know! A vote aimed at military personnel!"

...And the roaring "GODDAMNIT!" when the votes started rolling in. :lol:

Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

Between Romney and Obama I would vote for Obama. I may still elect to vote Green Party, though, depending on how their primary turns out.

Can't take the reality of the matter, can you NP? Reality is that your belief that vets would NOT vote for Obama is completely false. Come on, NP... stop living with your head in the sand.

In all fairness to NP, recent polls have shown romny has a huge lead over Obama in the veteran vote overall.

I believe this is what you psychologists call "cognitive dissonance." Sounds like Navy is having a little bit of trouble adjusting to reality lol.

Idaho is a right to work state, union and non-union work in close proximity...
I once showed an article that smeared unions to a fellow at work, suggested he read it. He came back and said he agrees, then I had him re-read the part he likes. He missed a negative, got it wrong.
Took a while, but I convinced him that his union was screwing him over by paying him the same as others who either could not or would not do the hard work, the mentally challenging work. He bid a job on the non-union side the next month, and got it, and got a raise out of it.
when a person is excessively biased, he sees and hears ONLY what supports his pre-existing opinions...and this describes people like NP.
