Surge of Support

You may have noticed that I added a banner in the upper right part of the blog supporting Mitt Romney for President. I never intended to turn this into a political blog, and I’m not starting now. However, I’ve never been afraid to share my views and opinions. I would encourage you to check out what he, and all the other candidates, have to say. Then make up your own mind and support your candidate.

One thing Mitt and I agree on is unwaivering support for our troops serving in war zones. No matter how you feel about the various military actions the US is engaged in, we (as citizens) need to recognize the dedication and sacrifice being made by these young men and women on our behalf. Take just a few minutes today and decide how you want to show your support. I chose to donate 10 USO care packages, but there are many other ways to give of your time and talents. Take a look at Mitt’s “Join the Surge of Support” page for other ideas.  This is a great entry to post your comments.  I’d love to hear what individuals and communities are doing to show their support.

    I’m supporting our troops by voting for a candidate who will get them out of GWB’s vanity war and bring them home. And that sure as hell ain’t Mitt. (Ain’t Hillary, either, btw.)

    …and I should add that it’s a bit tasteless of Mitt to appropriate the “surge” language, as if his faux-patriotic Web page is an act of courage on the scale of what our troops go through daily. A bit like certain Congressmen wearing ink-stained fingers to work a while back, as if they’d ever braved anything worse than a hangover to cast a vote.

    Okay. Perhaps you missed the part where I said this wasn’t going to become a blog about polotics. I am well aware that people have different views – especially about the war. I applaud your decision to let your vote be your voice, but that really doesn’t fall within the scope or topic I was trying to address with my post. Can’t really say anything more without breaking my own rules on this subject. 🙂

    Yeah, you’re right. Let’s leave the shouting to the folks at DK and LGF.

    Anyway, I suspect we agree on a lot….
