NOTE: For obvious reasons active officers do not publicly state political preferences, but our retired leaders give a very clear picture of where our military stands. If you are aligned with the short list, you might want to give that just one more gut check before you vote on November 6.

    The SO and I are USAF enlisted Vets and we absolutely support Romney. Not only is he the most logical and correct choice, he's a proven leader unafraid of responsibility and hard work. I'm not surprised at the list of military who support him. They've all probably had the intelligence to take a look at the pretenders sequestration bill and understand how it leaves our military holding rubberband slingshots.

    Hey Swede_su..........If you are so against democracy, you are free to move to another country. also, Romney hasn't been with Bain for years now. Just thought you might want to know this.

    and this matters because? contrary to popular belief this is NOT a military society. it's a society of PEOPLE who need health care, education, homes. how many of you are on medicare now? social security? how about your children - can they afford to go to college? do they have loans? how about jobs to china, which your dear romney is STILL sending through bain right now?

think about it. what is happening right here in our country.

here is your romneyism - i wish you all luck if this is what we wake up to on wednesday:

The ten guiding principles of Romneyism are:

1. Corporations are the basic units of society. Corporations are people, and the overriding purpose of an economy is to maximize corporate profits. When profits are maximized, the economy grows fastest. This growth benefits everyone in the form greater output, better products and services, and higher share prices.

2. Workers are a means to the goal of maximizing corporate profits. If workers do not contribute to that goal, they should be fired. If they cannot then find other work that helps maximize profits in another company, their wages must be too high, and they must therefore accept steadily lower wages until they find a job.

3. All factors of production -- capital, physical plant and equipment, workers -- are fungible and should be treated the same. Any that fail to deliver high competitive returns should be replaced or discarded. This keeps an economy efficient. Fairness is and should be irrelevant.

4. Pollution, unsafe products, unsafe working conditions, financial fraud, and other negative side effects of the pursuit of profits are the price society pays for profit-driven growth. They should not be used as excuses to constrain the pursuit of profits through regulation.

5. Individual worth depends on net worth -- how much money one has made, and the value of the assets that money has been invested in. Any person with enough intelligence and ambition can make a fortune. Failure to do so is sign of moral and intellectual inferiority.

6. People who fail in the economy should not be coddled. They should not receive food stamps, Medicaid, or any other form of social subsidy. Coddling leads to a weaker society and a weaker economy.

7. Taxes are inherently bad because they constrain profit-making. It is the right and responsibility of individuals and corporations to exploit every tax loophole they (and their tax attorneys) can find in order to pay the lowest taxes possible.

8. Politics is a game whose only purpose is to win. Any means used to win the game is legitimate even if it involves lying and cheating, as long as it gains more supporters than it loses.

9. Democracy is dangerous because it is forever vulnerable to the votes of a majority intent on capturing the wealth of the successful minority, on whom the economy depends. The rich must therefore do whatever is necessary to prevent the majority from exercising its will, including spending large sums of money on lobbyists and political campaigns. The most virtuous among the rich will go a step further and run for president.

10. The three most important aspects of life are family, religion, and money. Patriotism is a matter of guarding our economy from unfair traders and undocumented immigrants, rather than joining together for the common good. We owe nothing to one another as citizens of the same society.

may god help us if this is what we wake up to on wednesday.

    Hmmmmm.....wonder why that might be. No I don't, I come from a big military family...mostly senior enlisted with a sprinkling of junior officers (excepting one hot shot uncle) and in every branch but they're all of one mind on this one.
