Last Thursday, Breitbart News' Mike Flynn broke the news that the Obama campaign was suing in the swing state of Ohio to block a law that extends early voting for members of the military for an additional three days. A fierce battle erupted, with Democrats (and a few conservatives) arguing that Obama campaign was simply trying to extend the military's privilege to everyone else. Regardless of the remedy they seek, Flynn points out, they are suing to end an exemption for military voters.

These are the same people who burned their draft cards and fled to Canada. These are the same people who introduced LGBT issues into the military to undermine that institution. These people will stop at nothing to destroy our military in its current form and to remake it and the rest our country’s institutions into their own twisted dream of a socialist paradise.
