Why Do The Troops Hate The Troops?
Interesting data from the Center for American Progress. Since the end of the Vietnam War, members of the military have, by a large margin, contributed to and voted for Rethuglican candidates for office. Interestingly, the Iraq War is changing that. Some 40% of military contributions have gone to Democratic candidates, including the candidates for President. This is up from 23% in 2002. And while the majority of military contribute to Rethugs, it's interesting that the Rethug candidate drawing the most support is anti-war candidate Ron Paul.
