So are we done pretending most of the military does not favor Republicans?

That's the sound of our hearts breaking because you on the left are so easily led astray. It's saddening to see otherwise intelligent people getting sucked into such obivous and blatant attempts to change the truth into a lie. Even when it's pointed out as being a lie and the mechanism for the lie exposed, you still CHOOSE to believe the lie rather than the truth.

Open secrets has an impeccable reputation. I never said that the majority of military would vote for Obama. I posted an article that surprised me that the Armed Forces as a whole (which has always included civilian and military), has almost double the $ amount to Obama than Romney.

You righties proceeded to blow a gasket.


As a side note, thank you for your point that we, on the left, are intelligent.

$$$ Does not always equal support. If there were 100 people and 2 of them each donated $1000 to candidate A, while the others donated $10 each to candidate B, does that mean that the group supports candidate A or B? I know that this is an exercise in logic, so take your time and try not to strain parts of your brain that rarely get exercised (I hear that those pulled neurons take forever to heal).

Again, as I stated in the very post you replied to, I never said that the (much) higher dollar amounts for Obama would equal more votes for Obama...and for you to continue to misrepresent what I said is telling...as are your personal attacks.

Intelligence and application are often VERY far apart. Most people I know are fairly intelligent, it's how they apply that intellect that makes the difference. This whole issue is a classic example. You know full well that the dollars donated do not equate to the fact that you are pushing, yet you still push the idea. You have to CHOOSE to ignore historical trends and cherry-pick a piece of data to make your point. I believe that intellectually you know the truth on this issue, but you can't bring yourself to apply that truth and accept it being real because it conflicts with what you want to believe. So you have the information and knowlege and you choose to ignore that and believe the lie.
