Day534 Tuesday 02/14/12

ran 4.6 miles
I stumbled across an interesting article today at InfoWars, written by Kurt Nimmo. The article, “Active Duty Troops to March on White House”, claims that over 1,000 veterans and active duty troops supporting Ron Paul will be marching to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on February 20, 2012. Protesting the “unconstitutional forever war agenda of the establishment”, the veterans and troops will do an about face and salute a folded American flag for the same amount of seconds as the number of troops who have died since Obama has been president.

We don’t hear about it much in the news but Ron Paul has been receiving an overwhelming majority of donations from active duty members of the service. This same trend existed in 2008, as well.

Regardless of how you feel about Ron Paul, the pie chart above makes a loud statement. Those of us who never joined the military have many opinions about issues that directly affect servicemen and women, but they are the ones who are in the middle of those decisions fighting for their lives and seeing firsthand the results of war. The fact that 71% of these brave men and women support Ron Paul is a fact that is hard to ignore.

444.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day169.
