Again emotional ramblings. Look at the numbers and facts. Additionally, I have a very intimate knowledge of the war. I have faught there and lost friends there. I hear the oil thing a lot. I have never heard it from a Soldier who traveled off of a FOB.

For the readers of this, because this guy is an idiot. Assuming the oil thing is correct; and it is ridiculous. Most of the oil was seperated from Iraq in the Persian gulf. Pissed off Hussein, but not a lot to do with us other than our support. And Afghanistan has some natural gas.... But forget that. Why would anyonw who owns American oil want to open up the foreign market? Wouldn't a dictator driving up the price only help you?

Oh yeah, Bush did such a wonderful job that he was the least liked and approved of President by the American people! Didn't it feel wonderful when Bush gave our tax money to the bankers so they could get huge bonuses and take their vacations! After 8 years of Bush, this country is doing so much better. He started two wars killing thousands of our men and women for OIL! Did he go after Ben Laden??? HELL NO...that was a friend of his. They had "business" together. After Bush put this country into a depression, government spending money was the only way out. Better check your figures, mister! Mitt is incompetent not Obama! I would be ashamed with Mitt as president, he does not know shit from apple butter! Now he has Ryan (an atheist) as a running mate. One says there is no god, the other says we will all be gods of our own planets. Crazy both of them. There will be no medicare. Oh yeah, I can see a 86 year old knowing what to do with a voucher. Ryan and Mitt only want to give more power to insurance companies. Exactly the opposite of Obama's plan. He doesn't think that insurance companies should make profits on our illnesses. You better check your sources, the auto industry is paying the money back, the banks paid nothing back and no charges were ever made against their gambling with money that would effect our whole country. Yes, we have been a aocialist country under bush but it was only helping the rich. Did you know that Mitt received a $10 million government bailout when he under Bain bankrupted. That is socialist, my friend! In American, we help the handicapped, poor, hungry, elderly, our children, and those down on their luck. NOT THE BANKERS AND THE 1%
You need to think for yourself and not the propaganda you see on tv. I have been in the military 19 plus years now and have no problem with Afghanistan but think Iraq was meaningless and Bush should have been brought up on charges. Fact is if you want to support the military then vote for Romney unfortunately. We won't have any funding or benefits by the time Obama is done. We are hosed either way.

..... Also for us to speculate on why we go to war is insane. Politicians are crooks and criminals who can get 2000 people killed in a blink of an eye and still make their tee Time. No rhyme or reason. Doesn't matter once your there.

What is it?
Ryan's Budget:

It substantially restructures Medicare; cuts Medicaid, food stamps, and transportation infrastructure; and it reduces the top tax rate from 35% to 25%. Regarding Medicare, the 2011 version of the Ryan budget would transform it from a government-run program to one where future seniors receive a voucher or premium support to purchase health insurance from private insurers. The Congressional Budget Office said the plan would force most seniors to pay more for their health care than under the current Medicare system. The latest version, however, would give future seniors the choice of purchasing private insurance or through Medicare's traditional fee-for-service model.

My son-in-law was in Iraq 3 times....My friend who was in Afghanistan said WE ARE THE TERRORISTS! So you see my friend, not all soldiers have the same take on the wars as you do. I suppose it depends on how much of the white matter of your brain you use.

By the way, I do think for myself. Research has proven that people who vote republican only use the lower part of the brain, all based on fear. Democrats are thoughtful utilitizing a higher level of cognitive processing.

I read people very well. If you can't read Romney/Ryan, you must be blind in more ways than one.

That has to be the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. Would like to see where that research came from. Some biased format I am sure.

If you can't break this down and see this for what it is then obviously you are not using your white matter. Not sure what you are even saying opposed to the other poster.

Wow that is shocking. I am not exaggerating when I say I heard the exact same think in Afg. But it was from a Taliban (and wannabes, get a lot of those). I think your friend may have been FOBbit. I don't mean that as an insult. Just they don't really see a lot of what is going on. I can tell you for a fact. Anybody who can say that, has no real idea of what goes on. I have first hand experience. I can tell you we have saved people from horrors that rival the worst Steven king novel. You can't say those things and know.

My goodness! this is something a third grader would say, i.e., my mommy is prettier than your mommy, my home is bigger than your home, my daddy makes more money than your dad etc,. I have voted lots of Democratic votes and probably more Republican votes because I support conservative causes. For the period, I voted Democratic I Got my intelligence back.Your research has to be from a think tank run by Jesse and Al saying voting Republican makes one dumb or not thinking clearly. So when we say we can not vote for anyone favoring abortion, same sex marriage, funding of the abortion with our tax money, Obamacare, and abortion camouflaged planned parenthood we are dumb and not using our white matter in our heads.(lol).

Please define what you mean with facts; you can't it is simply not true. It is nothing against Obama. We hired him to do a job and it didn't work out.

Here is an example. Did you know our GDP is now less than our national debt? This means we are spending at a rate / amount more than the value of all of the goods our country produces. This is bad and cannot continue. Verify it yourself, it is called the debt to GDP ratio. Or look up the GDP then the national debt and do the math. I can give you many more examples. Did you know that the spending is increasing at a rate faster than our economy is growing? This is a negative growth progression. This was opposite under Bush. Spending decreased. Also consider we have cut things and it is still increasing. Plus the new healthcare is about to hit.

Do the research yourself and see. If not you are simply lying to yourself and others.
