    It seems that Ron Paul received the most money from our men and women in the armed services than any other candidate in the GOP. Ron was given about $36,739 and his closest competitor was Herman Cain at $6,223. In fact, Ron has received more money than what Obama has recieved.

    Can you really blame these poor bastards with no hope in sight of ever coming home? Deep down they know Ron is their only hope, and you know it as well.

    Wow. Even the military wants to cut military spending.

    I'm not sure cut is a good word to describe it.

    Perhaps a light trim in spending would be more accurate.

    That says something about the war policies. They're not allowed to express anti-war sentiments in any other way.

    Well, seeing as how the President is not opposing his own hawkish policies, I'm not sure it matters. There may be Democrats in the service who are giving to the only candidate with lots of coverage opposing the wars.
