Actually it is not. It is quite simple. All that is required is for people to shed their bias and partisan views, cease to be entrenched by politics and use common sense as opposed to blindly following a particular party.

Very easy indeed.

When you look at recruitment data by state, it seems a mixture with some red states having very low numbers and some blue states having very high numbers and the totals showing differences that aren't all that much. Certainly not enough to support the rather insulting point the OP is trying to make.

It really had nothing to do with them vs us. it had to do with who joins the military more.

Who is willing to die to keep freedoms. no matter if you support what the Government is using the Military for.

the fact that the Military is always there is what helps prevent us from being attacked.

OBL promised more attacks on the U.S. and actually by the U.S. being in Iraq, and Afghan helped prevent them from coming to the U.S.

They have stated many times it was easier for them to get to Iraq, or Afghanistan to try and kill a U.S. soldier then it was for them to get to the U.S. and commit a attack.

now just think of the devastation that could have been caused if any of those people decided to come to the U.S. and blow up a mall, or some other government building. instead of trying to kill U.S. forces in the middle east.

if you look at the overall #'s its actually more then just a insignificant amount. since it comes out to 114 for red states per every 10K to only 84.99 for blue states.

the highest # per capita is from a red state. now the lowest number of recruits was from a red state. but that red state also had 5. for every 10K people joining.

Since you were comparing those joining the military, do you really think that anyone doesn't know exactly what you were trying to say?

By asking "Do Conservatives care more about the U.S. and its freedom then Liberals do?" you are making it an "us vs them" issue. And it is not.

I never joined the military. Does that mean those who did love this country more than me?

what I was trying to say is shown in the statistics that support my post.

If you want to know more statistics Guam actually has the most per capita joining the U.S. Military. more then double the highest rate of any state in the U.S.

Which was.... "conservatives love their country more than liberals, as evidenced by more people joining the military from conservative states."

With absolutely no corroboration or proof, that it is actually conservatives that are joining the military in larger numbers from those red states.

Patently false, laughingly partisan and pretty pathetic...........any way you look at it.

Don't ask me questions when you have no intention of reciprocating.

I presented the facts. you can take your own way of looking at it. but again. look at the type of laws that the red states present.

Such as giving tax money to illegal aliens so they can go on to take American Jobs. such as is being done in California with AB 130 and AB131.

Or you have a red state that is trying to protect its citizens from the continues attacks on Legal citizens. by illegal aliens. and you have Democrats that fight the laws that would help protect citizens.

its not just the facts of who joins the military more. but its also the type of laws the states create.
