It doesn't matter to me if you are a veteran or not. Please read and forward this to all your e-mail buddies. It needs to go viral.

The 2014 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and VOTE!!!!)
A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014.. They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us. The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight. Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either. Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN's ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal. The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power.
If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger. Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists.
Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet. ---
More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan.
The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.
It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war. Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.
The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turnout to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.
Veterans: Please forward to your lists. Lets Make it High Priority!
Should be election 2014.
Don’t believe I’ll be around in 3014 for those.
I will be here, thanks to cybernetics and Chinese prisoner organs
Those that own L4B (little bath-house barry bastard boy) want things to degenerate to the point of the bullet box, so this may be our last chance in America to apply the ballot box solution before the collapse and end to the Republic. And I am DEAD SERIOUS on that count. This may be the last chance for a vast majority to exercise sovereign power over the political scumbuckets. Get everyone you know can vote out to vote and throw the damned bums out before they end the chance to do so.
Yeah. But an hour later you’ll need another Chinese organ.
Make that 1002 years!
Another 102 1/2 ? Check yer math
No math points for you...
Not the headline — for some reason it isn’t part of preview.
The message should be taken seriously typo or not!
In the year 3014, elections will be interstellar......................
So far this thread is full of mistakes. You might want to have it deleted and start over! lol
Well....I asked the moderator to correct the title before there were any posts you can see what good that did.
If they'll delete it, I'll re-post it.
Thirty six Senate seats. But who's counting.
Thanks for posting this, obviously we have a lot of ADD readers who can’t concentrate.
This forwarded email is dated, probably from being forwarded so often so I thought I would do some searching.
Know your enemy...those who are fighting FOR signing w/ICC...
Info from the 2nd link regarding the Rome Statute and the status of the U.S....
“On 31 December 2000, David Scheffer, Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues under the Clinton Administration, signed the Rome Statute. Signature of a treaty does not create legally binding obligations for the Signatory State, however according to Article 18 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969), a signatory who intends to ratify is bound to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of a treaty. On 6 May 2002, shortly before the Rome Statute entered into force on 1 July 2002, the administration of US President George W. Bush sent a note to the United Nations Secretary-General nullifying the Clinton signature. Since 2009, the US has sent observer delegations to the ICCs Assembly of States Parties and, more recently, to the Review Conference. The US position has gradually evolved into one of principled engagement with the ICC and strengthened support for the Courts current investigations and prosecutions. The Obama Administration has stated that it has no intention of ratifying the Rome Statute in the near future.”
However, this is by no means a reason NOT to VOTE. Are the COIN Rules of Engagement Constitutional? Signing with ICC is not.
