Ironically, the current administration is more concerned about getting undocumented voters to the polls than getting ballots to our men and women in the military. Could it be because two thirds (2/3) of the military opposes Obama?

Colin Powell, along with four (4) other retired military officers recently announced his support for Barak Obama to great fanfare.
Contrast that level of support with the list at the link below. How about this list?
500 Generals and Admirals support Romney
500 retired Generals and Admirals thought it was important enough to pay for the ad supporting Governor Romney. 66% of our active military members support Romney.
500 retired top military brass. 66% of active Military.
I know whose opinion I am giving more weight to.
Please make sure you vote tomorrow.

Why is your vote important?
In a nutshell, either Barak Obama or Mitt Romney will be elected president on Tuesday. No amount of wishful thinking will make any other candidate President. A protest vote or “principle” vote for another party only leaves your country’s future up to the whims of others.
Watch and consider before you “protest” or just as bad, abstain.
What else do you need to see? Religious intolerance, suppression of free speech? One man has already been arrested for making a YouTube video – a scapegoat for failed foreign policy. Do you really think 4 years from now you will still be able to “protest”?
Or might you be explaining, very quietly, to your grandchildren what it was like when we were free…
Get out and vote – and make it count.
Obama has stated that the United States will find the perpetrators of the attack on the Embassy in Benghazi and bring them to justice weeks ago and is desperately hoping that the whole event will go away. Become invisible.
How about if we just prevented them from being killed in the first place? We now know that approximately 7 hours of video from the attack was available. But the President was out at a rock star fundraiser in Las Vegas instead of taking action.
Many are calling it “Benghazigate” and talking of a cover-up. It was not just a “cover-up” as we have become accustomed to the word in a political sense. It was incompetence, then arrogance and insensitivity followed by cover-up and deceit.
Take a look at what happens when an Ambassador is in peril.
There are a lot of questions being raised, but I think the most important is “if no one seems to have given the order to ‘Stand Down’, then please tell us all who stood their ground and gave the directive to ‘go save them’”?
Politics aside, ask yourself how you would feel right now if one of the four “invisible men” asking for help had been one of your loved ones.
