To show how loyal Vermont is to the way we VOTE would not be right to send 100 % of guard and Reserve. The point I am making is with the second highest % for( THE OBAMA ) in the 2008 election what better way to show our faith in OUR DEAR LEADER ??

Mr J.W. McSherry. From your point of view Obama is at fault for everything in the world today. Your current view obscures the fact that each and every one of todays problems come from your repub friends. Kick them, not those trying to disentangle us from their messes,

I don't like it. They're taking the only few Vermonters who might vote Repulbican, and sending them all to Afghanistan. People, don't you see what's happening here????

From my point of view ( THE OBAMA )is at fault for the Vermont National Guard going to Afghanistan. As for everything else I am willing to wait and see. Give him time he might a bigger mess than the Republican Kennedy in Vietnam The Republican Carter with high inflation The Republican Clinton with NAFTA Look how it helped Bennington with Stanley Tools and Johnson Contron Going to Mexico. Hope we don't get a Democrate like Nixon who got us out of Vietnam and ended the draft. Now answer the question ( THE OBAMA )is sending the guard should we ie VERMONTERS not support him by sending 100 %?

Before they go let them register as a democrat. Then if like Senastor Kerry they kill a civilian they can also run for President. As was said ONLY A COMBAT VETERAN SHOULD BE PRESIDENT.

Mr Rob McWaters as ( THE OBAMA ) can do no wrong why is there no support for my plan to send all of yhe Guard ??? Next question why are not all of ( THE OBAMA ) people joining not just the Guard but the regular militaly. Have yet to see a car with both a sticker for (THE OBAMA ) and any kind of military sticker ??? The war can not be wrong now..

Same here in Bennington last time I saw any was only 3. Ask around on my question " How many of (THE OBAMA) people have joined up to go with the guard next year. I even would like those who support him to be able to bump non Democrat Vermonters if not COMBAT JOBS for all who are non ( OBAMA ) backers

Most people against war don't care who's war.I don't care who is in the whitehouse we should not be in either country.Remember ,the bushy's started these occupations and now we are stuck there.The National Guard were missused and still are.The fact is we don't have the personnel to maintain multable occupations and an empire.Thousands of contractors are being used to pull this off and we are going broke.We know of Halliburton and Betchel's problems and now Blackwater's CEO(Eric Prince) is up on multable murder charges as well as torture.You don't think some of that money could be spent on healthcare do you?

( ONE )In Bennington when Bush was in whitehouse the number of anti war protesters was the 30"s now down to about 3.( TWO ) we are not stuck there look at how fast we left Vietnam just ran to roof left by helicopter. So all that has to be done is to say " IN THE NAME OF THE OBAMA DO LIKE E T COME HOME.( THREE ) the National Guard is being used because Bubba Clinton cut the regula military over 30 % and made the guard our front line troops.( four ) Going broke look at 1800 in Guard have jobs in Afghanistan in Jan plus in Bennington a company got a contract to build armor vehicles.( FIVE ) health what is wrong with people getting a job to pay for it why does every thing have to be a free federal program.

mr/mrs. common sense - perhaps your boy obama now realizes the real danger of terrorism. oh yeah - it was sooo easy for him to bash bush about this "horrible war". well guess what - you think maybe he is now reading some intel reports. perhaps that is the reason he is building up more troops instead of getting out.
furthermore, if you left-wing moonbats had nads you would be down at the post office protesting for an exit strategy. come on - you did it when bush was there. please explain the difference now.
