“Ron Paul, has a top three donor list made up of the US Army, US Navy and US Airforce”
That says a lot!
The fantasy that Paul is loved by active duty military personnel continues.
There are many liberal civilians that work for the armed forces. But it looks cool to those that are easily fooled.
It says he’s done a great job fooling a lot of good people, unfortunately.
Yeah. It says that there are retards who believe that paultards tell the truth when filling out their dollar donation cards.
People are in love with the idea of what Ron Paul says he represents. The basic problem is Ron Paul doesn’t represent conservatism. His foreign policy (such as it is) alone would get us all killed.
paul called Bradley Manning a HERO and a PATRIOT instead of the treasonous little $#$#^% he is. How do you suppose REAL military people feel about that one?
“Let’s see. Should I put down ‘busboy’? Nah. I’ll put down ‘Army Ranger.’ Sounds better.”
Somehow we need to delink The Goldman Sack from the US gov’t.
The media seems supportive of Ron Paul, so many people only know that positive side of him. The media knows it would be easy to destroy Ron Paul in the general election season, giving the win to BO.
Yeah, Paul donors claim to be service members on the form. The claims are unsubstantiated. We went through this four years ago. Notice how actual polling data never bears out this Paulestinian myth.
And welcome to Free Republic!
The people on this thread are fooling themselves. young military types really do like ron paul. I’ve seen it first hand. They do not pick a candidate that will benefit them personally. They pick one that they believe is best for the country. That is how military men think.
That was best for the country?
Why are you asking me? Ask the ron paul supporters, they are the ones that believe it.
Paul probably does get some support from them just like any other candidate. The reality is, some in the Military voted for the Zero. Crazy, but happens.
Why not mention in the article of the top ten for Perry, Gingrich, Santorum?
So why don’t polls of servicemembers even show Paul in the top 3? Perry way outpolls him.
Eh, it would be interesting to see an audited report of this, not that there will ever be one. Read ‘Stolen Valor’; it’s a great expository of (among other things) the number of folks who claim military service who never served or claim to have done things that just aren’t so.
you may be right, but the Foreign Policy we have been living under right now gives NO COMFORT, nor did it under Bush - no candidate is offering any rational improvements for the Defense of our country, just platitudes. Our troops are dying in Afghanistan for no good reason. They were never allowed to fight to win and the ROE is absurd on any level. The rot permeates all of our Institutions, and even though I do agree with Paul on a lot of his opinions, he would still just be another captain on the new Titanic.
Rhetorical question. You say they vote according to what’s best for the country yet they want a candidate who was against the War in Iraq?
