There was a vote? Did they require a picture ID?
Was there any hangin' chad? I demand a recount!
I am pro-military. But not the way it's defined by those that are anti-military.
I am pro-strength. But with strength comes responsibility, and more importantly restraint.
I am pro-military action. But only in the defense of the United States from an attacker, either response to an attack as a prohibitive response to a KNOWN threat; or in defense of the defenseless from aggression and/or genocide; or as response to assist our allies in the very few treaties that we are actually signatories to.
I am pro-Constitution. In that the power to declare War rests solely and squarely with the Congress of the United States, and just like any other member of the United States Armed Services, the Commander-in-Chief has a superior officer they must report to and follow their orders. That superior officer is the American People through their Representatives in the United States Congress.
I am pro-American Government regarding military actions. In that the United States is a Sovereign Nation and does not and must not subordinate that Sovereignty to any other country, or group(s) of countries (the UN).
I have many other pro's regarding the military, but I think you get the strong position upon which I stand regarding the military, and my fellow members of the All Volunteer Armed Forces, that every day, write a check to the American people, payable up to and including their life.
bah we've been fighting like madmen around the world since the end of world war two
