    agree 100%... I was enlisted for 11 years before I got commissioned.

    I have a strong preference for military veterans, but I won't sacrifice my core issues to vote for one.

    It doesn't matter.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    We have had great presidents who haven't served, awful ones who have, and vice versa. Doesn't matter to me.

    Even if I wanted to, I couldn't serve in the military. I have a hearing disability. I was born with substantially decreased hearing in my right ear. There are reasons for no military service.

    Or, even a Senator or Representative?
    Not very important unless they are rattling the sabre on the campaign. There is nothing worse than a chicken-hawk, to me its a form of hypocrisy.
