A recent study shows that Presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul is the candidate with the most support from members of the U.S. military, despite calling for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
While I don't support many of Paul's positions and probably wouldn't vote for him, I like his honesty and sincerity as well as his position on the war. This is another example that despite what the Republicans say, our service men and women are not all blind followers of the far right-wing agenda. Just because they don't traditionally speak out on political matters doesn't mean that they all support what is going on in Iraq.
When this study was brought to Paul's attention by a FOX News correspondent he replied:
"We take the traditional position that you should only go to war under a declaration and win and get out," Paul explained. "It's protecting the troops ... and the fact that we get the money from the military more than all the other Republicans put together is a pretty darn good endorsement."

WASHINGTON - Republican Sen. Sam Brownback, the Kansas conservative who struggled to raise money and gain recognition in the 2008 presidential campaign, will drop out on Friday, people close to him said Thursday.
GOI: Well it's about time this troglodyte knuckle scrapper dropped out of the race. Even though he really never had a chance It's nice to hear one less conservative bloviate about 15th century thinking. You name the issue and he's so far right that he walks in circles. It's always a great day for me when someone like that drops out of the national spotlight. It was nice that he barely even registered in the polls, there might be hope for fending off the religious radicals after all.
