Posted on 11/04/2008 9:08:46 PM PST by A_perfect_lady
As of right now, my humble advice to young conservatives is this: Don't go into the military. We don't know how Obama will use you. Chances are, you'll end up in areas not protecting our security or US interests, but fighting and dying in feel-good missions at the behest of the Murthas and Bidens of the world. Somalia. Rwanda. Who knows where.
You'll also run the risk of falling under UN command, and being handed over to international courts.
If you want to serve this country in a manner that will best benefit yourself and those you love, consider the police force. These will be the ones most likely to be sent to quell internal dissent. How handy mightn't it be for many of our young cops to be secretly conservative. You'll be the ones who still have guns if the majority of the populace is disarmed.
Just a thought.
Buy a good rifle and lots of ammo. Practice. Practice. Practice. You might need it sooner than you think.
Not only “feel-good” missions, but also missions to silence conservatives.
Obama will turn young soldiers against their parents.
It is the way of fascism, Marxism and academia.
Keep your kids out of the military.
What about Obama’s proposed civilian security force, which he said should be at least as well funded as our armed and uniformed military forces?
I was going to sign up for the reserves conditional upon whether McCain wins. Guess that will have to be delayed for 4 years.
I will be proud to serve under Jindahl or Palin.
I expect a draft for Obama’s new Gestapo. Perhaps he will wait 10 or 12 years down the road for that, however.
Hmmmm...I have 8 more years to “get my twenty”...wonder where I will end up? I began my service during the Clinton years...hope I do not end it still in Obama years...
Be a (strong) voice for reason. The Left will keep pushing, but don’t let them destroy the nation.
Young folks ought to reject the socialism and 0bama's BS rhetoric that will be shoved down their throats and think ONLY of using the country as a financial vehicle - it's all this balkanized nation is good for now.
Darfur. That is my prediction. Real vital to America's security, right?
I just posted on another thread the very same thought. My son (and only child) has applied to Navy OCS and I will now encourage him to pull it. There is no way I’ll have him serve when the president voted in the senate to cut funds while troops were in the field (shades of Nam), while retired senior officers carried the water for this guy and while the govt is planning on making beggars of his parents. Let someone else do it...
I have never feared for my two military sons under Bush. I am now scared to death what’s going to happen to them. I wish they would both choose to get out as soon as they can but the oldest has been accepted to Marine OCS. I think the younger one will get out of the Marines when his enlistment is up in March. Thank goodness!
That's what B.O. said in the debate - he's sending troops to Darfur, a country that never attacked us ... oh nevermind ...
Israel now has no choice, they have to take out Iran before the inauguration. Our military is going to have plenty to do.
What about those of us who already took our oath? And none of our ballots had even been counted when McCain conceded. I have to pop and snap salute Obama as CIC? Yes ma’am.
yes. both of my sons were thinking of joining the military but now i will forbid it! I will not have them fighting and possibly dying for a country that spits upon them and their beliefs.
I have a son in the Marines who is deployed... and he was very nervous about this election. His intentions were to make the military a career. That will now change I’m sure. I have a daughter who was entering the Navy’s DEP. I will now discourage her... which is a shame because up until tonight’s elections I was pushing her in that direction.
My advice to young conservatives:
We need our own conservative media more than anything else. Until we can bypass the MSM and speak directly to the people we are going nowhere. Find a way to get rich creating that and you will make a contribution to the cause worthy of a Buckley or Rush Limbaugh.
A CNN type news outfit that exists only on the internet? That will be norm in ten years. Create it now and we will have the advantage.
There is an online dating site called “plentoffish” that apparently is run out of a guys bedroom and yet makes $10 million a year solely from Google advertising. I see potential to get rich and save the world for some web savy young conservative that creates the online replacement for the New York Times.
don’t sign up for selective service to get govt aid because he will try to bring back the draft
Are you sure that leftists will even allow elections in ‘10, ‘12, and beyond? Why suffer political embarrassments when the left can just avoid having any elections in the first place? The left doesn’t care about either the law or the U.S. Constitution, unless it helps the left even more.
To be brutally honest, I'm thinking about it. I don't think the Army would take a guy in his late twenties, tho.
So what you’re saying is offering your children up for sacrifice to George W. Bush for the Iraq fiasco (and Iran soon probably) was fine, but not fine for Obama?
Where does the loyalty to your country factor in the decision, if at all?
What, Fox News Channel isn’t enough?
If Obama gets re-elected in 2012, look for them to start making noise about revoking term limits in 2014. I will guarantee it.
This soldier will be retiring after 32 yrs. I still have 10 more yrs. left if I want it, but I will not be under the command of this mongrel. I served 4 yrs active duty under the hollow Army of jimmah carter, I refuse to do it again. Dig in people! Improve yourselves, spiritually, mentally, and physically.Read the Bible,and classic books, learn to hunt, fish, shoot. Be self sufficient
I was an Army brat under Carter and a Marine wife under Clinton. It SUCKED. This will be worse.
The first thing that I’m going to do tomorrow is beging the purge of the Jackson County Republican party. It is filled with RINOs who are so bad that they didn’t even run a candidate for my district and gave it to the dems by default.
Then I’m going to work on the Young Republicans in my area. They are more interested in meeting at the local bar during happy hour than actually doing anything. Their website shows their lack of motivation. It hasn’t been updated in almost a year.
It begins tomorrow and we will see the results in 2010 when we take back the congress!!!
Just make sure to include a fully referenced and sourced show that goes through and demonstrates how the rest of the media is covering things up or distorting them.
That would take an amendment to the US constitution. But perhaps there would be some manufactured crisis. And then the ONE could declare marshal law, suspend the constitution, and declare himself dictator until the crisis ends. But of course the crisis will never end.
Please, calm down. I would rather have my son in the USMC than any college in America. Besides, the privates and corporals will be protected by their NCOs and junior officers. So, young men will be okay in the military.
Run your life on a cash basis as much as possible.
Avoid using credit cards.
Pay off debts as soon as possible.
Avoid name brands and buy items on sale or with coupons.
Avoid keeping money in banks.
Buy a safe and keep your cash there.
If you wish to give to charity, give through your church only.
Buy a gun, and get a CWP while you can.
Put off buying any large ticket items...keep consumer confidence low.
Four years of socialism should wake the people up.
I trust that the Generals will stand up to Obama. And they will look after their men.
But I have been dissatisfied with the treatment of our Marines even under Bush.
We put our bravest into war zones, but then prosecute them for PC purposes and to appease the world when they do kill someone.
This will be much worse under Obama.
I am a Texan living in CA right now. I would recommend young people join the Guard instead.
Tomorrow morning, begin reestablishing Young Americans for Freedom as a plo;itical force. We who are YAF alumni will help you any way we can.

You must not remember details of Desert Storm and the Armistice signed between the Allies (50+ nations) and Saddam Hussein.
Less than 24-hours after signing Saddam Hussein violated that agreement by firing upon our troops. He went on to violate that armistice more than a thousand times. There wasn’t a day that went by that his military fired upon our military guarding the Marsh Arabs in the south, and the Kurds in the north. Even the UN chastized Saddam Hussein repeatedly, more than a dozen times.
We had every internationally recognized legal right to go back in and set right what we’d left undone in 1991. Such a right was spelled out in the armistice.
ADHD was a clever statement, very clever, but dead wrong!
I respect your views, but BO did pledge to increase the size of the Marine Corps and the use of special operations. My son is going into special ops eventually so he should be okay.
So he told yet another lie.
Since I don’t have a son on the front lines, I will defer to you on the matter.
I am from a military family, and did a brief stint in the Navy myself.
God bless you and your family.
Great minds think alike -
STOP GIVING YOUR CHILDREN TO THE MILITARY. Don’t let them join or reenlist. The liberals are going to cut the military budgets and the troops will suffer. Too many at the top are closet liberals - power happy and willing to feast at the government trough while screwing over those who depend on them. Just ask Colin Powell. Let the liberals send their children to the front lines. If they want to play referee in Bosnia or Darfur, they can do it without our kids. If your children want to be patriotic, tell them to go apply for an air traffic controller position. They will have thousands of openings with all the retirees, it pays a good wage and they are hiring kids with excellent GPAs right out of high school. Take the job at age 18 and retire at 48 with a government pension. Added bonus: it’s like playing video games all day long and nobody’s shooting at you! Or tell them to become teachers so we can start taking back the public schools, the real front lines. NOTE: Please do take your children to the local gun range and get them to marksman level. Let’s create our own civilian army.
Wow - a genuine troll...
