Very easy indeed.
Then why can't you shed yours and answer a simple question?

I never joined the military. Does that mean those who did love this country more than me?
Not at all.

It was a question. why do people from red states join the military more then people from blue states.

Having been to Guam, I would guess the primary reason for the large difference is people looking for a way to get the hell off that island...

Maybe they're trying to get off the island because they're scared you might return...

Because they're too stupid to get a good paying job.

so this is what I find funny... here you are saying that Republicans are to stupid to get good paying jobs.

and then you complain that Conservatives that own corporations make to much money.

and then lets look at the jobs that the left gets.

Public Unions that bully Americans into higher taxes. so they can go to strip joints while working.

Molest children and then just get transferred. and still get paid.

Kill people. and then go home and get paid.

Nice jobs the left has.
