    By whose standard? You didn't think they were more "badass" than you. Bet they thought different lol.

    Sorry, I posted a retort before I saw this.

    Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

    The vast majority of my career has been in a joint environment. I am Army but I have worked alongside Navy, Air Force, Marines, and even Coast Guard. We have fun making jokes at each other’s expense but we still respect each other. In the end we all chose a career of service. It probably helps that we work in an environment where we are vastly outnumbered by State Department civilians. When that is the case the differences between the services don’t stand out quite so much.

    ETA: As to the thread topic, yes there are military members here but tht doesn't mean the results aren't skewed.

    I don't believe this reflects the military vote here.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Agreed on all points except about the State Dept. There are only about 50,000 State Dept. employees compared to about 1.4 million active duty personnel and 1.1 million reserves.

    Internet forum polls are not scientific and should be judged for entertainment value only.

    I work at an embassy. Trust me, we are outnumbered. At my last assignment I was one of only 3 US military personnel in the entire country. Not even any Marine Security Guards there.

    In an Embassy, sure, but overall, no.

    I was there, Boo. You are trying to correct me about things that I took part in, because you are stuck defending a foolish position you struck declaring something a failure because that would have been ideologically beneficial.

    So.... you don't know? You just threw out the "1%" line as a BS talking point? Hey, what percent of Americans do you think George Clooney is in? How about all the Black Rock guys that Obama hangs out with? Oprah? All those Hollywood actors? How about John Corzine?

    On all the issues that are the highest priority to me, the president's views are the closest to mine. However, if you support supply side economics, deregulation, increased spending on the military, even bigger tax cuts for the rich at the expense of our seniors, taking no action on AGW or developing clean energy, Romney is your man.
    Well now we get to the thick of it. Your foolish "the guy who get's the fewest donations from rich people" is bunk and really, you know it. You are voting for the guy you agree with.

    I'm curious about the "at the expense of our seniors" line, though. What do you think about Obama's plan to cut at the exact same rate as Ryan, but do it to current seniors, and apply it evenly to rich and poor alike, as opposed to Ryan's proposal to make the cuts progressive so as to protect our lower-income workers by not subsidizing our wealthier seniors?

    would be interesting to see how the results changed if you removed the votes from the "old guys" who were drafted instead of volunteering
