Barb,

To answer your question about donating to groups helping soldiers or active duty soldiers. There are 2 really good programs that I've worked with that are fantastic about helping our boys! The first is the Wounded Warriors Project that aids injured Veterans.

The other one helps out our soldiers currently deployed. That would be Operation Shoebox.

I hope these links help!

I was drifting towards supporting Herman Cain because when originally asked if he would appoint a Muslim to a high governmental position, he said "No".

He has recently came out to say that he has reconsidered his stand and that he would appoint a qualified Muslim to a high government position.

I'm hoping his rhetoric revolves around the word "qualified" and that he actually wouldn't do such an outrageous thing, but .....

"A government big enough to give everything you want is also big enough to take everything you have."

I'm a little leery of Herman Caine. All we know about him is wat he tells us. Too similar to what we've got right now.
But whoever the candidate is, I will vote, and I will vote for the Republican, whoever it is.

I don't care at all for Romney, but I sure did like the cadets response when he talked about BO.

Well said even though not a Romney fan, but still well said.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

While we are speaking about the military...Is there anyone who supports financially, any of the military groups? Any advice about donating to any of the Wounded Warriors groups? I did send personal CARE boxes to sons of some of my SP friends who were serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, who have since, fortunately returned home.

(Sharing this doesn't mean I endorse Romney, I just couldn't resist sharing the reaction of the cadets)

Romney Criticizes Obama at Military College — and Cadets Cheer!

This Morning, Mitt Romney used his foreign policy address at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina to criticize what he called the Obama administration’s “feckless policies of the last three years.”

Romney criticized the president on cutting the defense budget, as well. “I will reverse President Obama’s massive defense cuts,” he said. “I will begin reversing Obama-era cuts to national missile defense and prioritize the full deployment of a multilayered national ballistic missile defense system.”

In his closing argument, Romney contrasted his vision of America’s role in the world with that of Obama. “I will not surrender America’s role in the world,” he said. “This is very simple. If you do not want America to be the strongest nation on Earth, I am not your president. You have that president today.” The cadets appluaded.
