    You see it is a vet and not a hippie defending the ballot box. Yes, I still have hippies for neighbors.

      The two are not mutually exclusive. I am a veteran and I have always considered myself a hippie. Show me where it says in the constitution you republicans are always crowing about protecting where it says I have to show you my ID to vote. To be republican is to be a hypocrite.

        Thought about it after I wrote it, most my neighbors avoided service, but on thinking about it, I guess it is possible to be a “hippie” and a vet. You two prove that the point that even democrats can have bigots. Check my other posts and you will see that I am a moderate and not a Teabagger. I suspect you two are as much a problem for the democrats as the baggers are to the republicians.

    • I TOO SERVED IN THE ARMY AND YOU WOULD CALL ME A HIPPIE. THE QUESTION, A REPUBLICAN NORTHLANDGRAD, IS WHO IS THE SERVICEMAN PROTECTING THE BALLOT BOX FROM? IT IS NOT ACORN, AND YOUR RIGHT WING MADE UP SCANDAL, IT IS THE RNC AND A VERY REAL EFFORT TO DISENFRANCISE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS.

      I HOPE THIS BRUSTS YOUR SELF SATISFIED BUBLE, BUT I FEAR IT WILL NOT.

          I find it very interesting,ARepublicanNorthlandGrad, that the majority of the younger people (under 65) I know who avoided service are good solid patriotic Republicans ready to send other people’s sons to war at a moments notice. Most those of my and my father’s generation served in WW1 and/or WW2 including those who were morally against war in any form (usually served in the medical corps) although even then many of those who were most hawkish were able to get out of actual combat by proving that they were too valuable to the war effort at home to be wasted as mere combatants. It really helps when you own the draft board.

            Cann’t disagree with you.

  • Maybe we need to enlist the assistance of Jimmy Carter in monitoring our vote next month. He has done an excellent job over the past two decades monitoring voting inother countries around the world in which large factions of the established order create or threaten to create havoc among the voters. It is becoming apparent that an individual’s right to vote is coming under increasing pressure from forces outside one’s voting district. Let’s become the Democracy we were meant to be, not the plutocracy the Koch brothers want.
