I came across this list from a message board I participate in. In my opinion, what it reflects, is that the military is government. The right-wing Republicans of course don't believe in government. Although the troops (the majority of) vote Republican, I think that if they looked into veteran's issues they'd see that the Democrats are clearly superior to Republicans in caring for vets (I believe Kerry won the support of most/all veteran's groups). People that run for office are obviously much better informed on political issues (than the average Joe), and they do the necessary research to realize the Republicans are no friend of the soldier.

I just have never figured out why these good-hearted people mostly vote Republican, and can't see how badly they are being used as cannon-fodder by a party that doesn't care, and scoops up the often poorer or undereducated social classes for their own nefarious deeds.

I agree with you, I blame the media, and the educational system. There's got to be a greater effort to have an active, and informed citizenry. But it benefits corporate america, and the war lovers, to keep things the way they are.
