I agree. There will always be a big boy on the world stage. I want that to be the usa as long as I and my progeny are alive. But what we have now is a military strung out. Standing on the brink of collapse and rout. It is the missuse of our military that so many americans object to.

Look at the recent numbers put up on this board today that show the men actually fighting are donating to dr. Paul’s cmpaign. More active duty personnel are donating to dr. Paul than to obama and the other republicans combined.

Our military was organised and designed to protect its citizens. Not those of other countries. It was designed to protect our borders not the dmz. Our livelihoods not the house of saud.

Also, our warfighting is done by citizens with the consent of those citizens. The office of the president is not the congress.

If your answer is the US should be that dominant military power, then you have to oppose Ron Paul. He has stated that he would gut the military. With all bases closed, as he said, we are done as a military power. Ron Paul would destroy this nation defensively and sent the entire world into chaos. He is a dangerous crackpot.

And, the military political donations to Paul is BS PR. 1. His cult can check any box they want when they donate. They/he knows they can get press by checking the “military” box. There is no audit of those things. It is no more credible than on-line polls that the Paul cult stuffs the voting. 2. The amount is peanuts. In a campaign that takes in millions of dollars, a few tens of thousands is chump change.

That has been debunked. Indeed two threads started by Paulitards that tried to push that tripe have been pulled.

There is nothing to show the validity of the poll. its make up or methodology, and such has been asked for again and again.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised Paulitards with their OWS and Code Pink buddies would go for the "repeat the lie often enough" bit.

Here ya go...

"The military donation angle been debunked many, many times. The numbers they are using are from a very limited sampling (and from a Soros funded group by the way, but I digress), only donors who give over $200 (quite large for the average soldier to give) and the sampling has been tainted by his "Military Moneybomb" where they were encouraging Paultards to put down they were in the military even if they aren't currently in the military (retired, ever was a contractor for anything with the military, or "whatever"). The number of donors is also so small (about 90 total) it is statistically insignificant in a population of about 3 million (active + reserves). Other polls of larger sampling of the military show Paul's support only in the single digits."

The "recent numbers" posted were pulled because they were BS.

Paulitard spam doesn't fair to well with Conservatives. its more Code Pinkish...
