Hi ATS
Can the poll numbers be correct? Was this poll conduct properly?
With news like there are more questions than answers usually.
I know there a lot of military folk here on ATS who better to ask.
There are just way to many news forums here.
So if this is not worthy of BAN then please find the proper place for the thread.
Thanks as always ljb

I believe it.

Romney is just more warmongering and profiteering. The military prefers Ron Paul first and foremost, as do I, but if we can't get Paul, then what? It certainly isn't Romney, so Obama is the default. Take the known bad over the unknown bad? Take Socialist over Corporatist? I think so.

Personally, I will be writing in Ron Paul, knowing full well that it probably means another Obama term, but I refuse to throw my vote to Romney just because those are the only two choices on the plate.

I liken it to a person who has been sitting in front of a slot machine for 12 straight hours. Feeding one coin after another in hopes that the flashing neon sign with the promise of a really Big Win, sitting on top of the machine, finally happens.

After so much blind faith has been put into that stupid machine, it has to pay off soon. So, they just keep mindlessly feeding and hoping.....

No winners here....none at all. Except the machine.

Hi get,
I went back and checked. RON PAUL was not even mentioned unless I missed something. MSN sucks big time.
The media communists are hard at work here.
LOL ljb

Paul is mentioned in the article, the 3rd paragraph.


In South Carolina's January primary, the one-time Reagan supporter voted for Ron Paul "because of his unchanging stand against overseas involvement." In November, McDowell plans to vote for the candidate least likely to wage "knee-jerk reaction wars."

My bad for missing that. But he was never considered for the pole, Bizarre.
Thanks for the catch ljb
What would this pole have looked like if Paul was a choice for some of the questions?

. The other 36% undecided? That is an overwhelming 73% DO NOT APPROVE

Here are some snips from the article

Asked about Obama's handling of his job, 27 percent of veterans approved, and 37 percent disapproved, with the rest undecided

The Pentagon counts more than 6,300 American dead and 33,000 wounded in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. A Rand Corp study estimates that as many as 300,000 post-9/11 veterans suffer from PTSD or major depression, and about 320,000 may have experienced traumatic brain injuries, mainly from bombs.

But this father of five shudders at the memory of the young Vietnamese-American at Fort Jackson, whose fear of deployment was brushed off by an officer. The soldier tried to commit suicide by shoving a pencil up his nose into his brain.

They'd strap gasoline cans to IEDs. Our soldiers burned alive. You'd hear them screaming, and you couldn't do anything."

He chokes up when he recalls "the geek-faced kid" from Oklahoma who was brought in to fix office computers in McDowell's Iraq bomb dismantling unit. The young man, with no combat training, was sent into the field to hack into terrorists' laptops. Within weeks he suffered a mental breakdown. Returning stateside, he shot his two children to death and killed himself.

Nice lives for our citizens. Or should I say deaths too.
