Retired Navy Commander & VP of Marketing After 4 Years of Me on a Soapbox: "Maybe we do need to revisit some idealism."Submitted by RobHino on Thu, 01/12/2012 - 00:02
After four years of political discourse with my mentor and predecessor at work, he sent me this email today!
I’m beginning to feel unloved here: never did get the Christmas card. If I were a conspiracy nut, I would think someone is intercepting your outgoing mail to former employees (“enemies”) like myself. Just email me a scan of the artwork; I don’t need the rest, I just wanted to see what you came up with.
Got to hand it to Ron Paul --- he’s hanging in there in the race. It appears that he has a large following of young people, and that’s not surprising, given his views on foreign intervention, military spending, social security, foreign policy, etc. Maybe we do need to revisit some idealism. It’s true that the other candidates aren’t really offering any real change. I think Obama will be hard to beat because his voter base of those who depend on federal programs continues to grow.
This guy was as stubborn as a mule on the foreign policy and Iran. He was a Commander and Special Officer with Navy Intelligence!
Can anyone say tipping point?!
