    Veterans for Trump

    Why do veterans support Trump? Do they really think he will change the republican party's policies? Trump like so many republicans was a draft dodger. Lots of men were, I've only met one in my life who was honest and admitted getting a exemption. And while the lower classes served, the upper classes hide. And face it folks, bringing back the draft would create more crying than a Dear John. When Trump beats his chest like some superman, I have to laugh, when he had the chance to serve he too hide. So why the support? And this question is about policy, not the usual equivalency apologetic rebuttal.

    "Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home -but not for housing. They are strong for labor - but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage - the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all - but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine - for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing - but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing - so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it." Harry S. Truman

    Military folk have always been republicans. They're as brainwashed as republicans that don't believe they used to be the party of big government ....

    You clearly dont have a clue what you are talking about.

    Veterans had supported democrats for decades, years ago the only way the military got a raise was if mendell rivers D fought to get them one.

    Veterans now rightfully "SEE" the destruction of the military happening in front of them and they see what Obama is really about in the middle east.

    I know die hard democrat vets that are registered democrats that are voting for trump

    Conservatives tend to flock to military service. Liberals tend to avoid it.

    NO most of the vets I know were traditionally registered democrats that are now independents and some switched parties.

    WW2 vets and Korean were just about ALL democrats. That changed some during nam with the protests

    According to post #7 either conservatives somehow vote for democrats, or it isn't accurate.
