Temecula California Young Republican chair writes about military support for Ron Paul

A local Republican leader posted an article today:

Ron Paul, The Military, and Why There Is Almost No in-Between

There doesn’t seem to be an in-between opinion with service members on Ron Paul. He is either loved or despised. Praised or loathed. Working in politics and being around many folks who have served and now work in politics too, I have had the opportunity to have the Ron Paul conversation on several occasions. With older veterans and service members I find that they tend to agree more with Congressman Paul’s ideas on war, foreign affairs, and military spending. With the younger generation of servicemen I see them divided on the topic. The ones who are downtrodden on Afghanistan tend to agree that we need to pull out as quickly as possible. The ones who still believe we should be in Afghanistan vehemently disagree with Paul.

The author (Ashley Nicole Ingram) seems fair in the article, which is based on interviews she conducted with active duty military. She does not reveal her personal opinions about Ron Paul, but it seems apparent she's not a hater either. She is also the Chair of the Temecula Valley Young Republicans and the Executive Director of the California Young Republican Federation.

I posted a couple of comments already about the Veterans Day march and the heavy donations from active duty military, but both are still pending moderator approval. If there are any active duty or military veterans that can add their personal journey to Ron Paul, it might help sway opinion in this town and draw more comments and conversation to draw local interest. The story gets pushed to the front page when more comments are made, even if when the story is weeks old (though this was just posted 4/11/12).

This is an opportunity to help awaken people in Temecula CA (a town of 100K) and Murrieta CA (another 100K+).

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.
