Rep. Roy Blunt, the House Republican whip, on July 8 introduced a resolution demanding that the Defense Department better enable U.S. military personnel overseas to vote in the November elections. That act was followed by silence. Democrats normally leap on an opportunity to find fault with the Bush Pentagon. But not a single Democrat joined Blunt as a co-sponsor, and an all-Republican proposal cannot pass in the Democratic-controlled House.It was so reassuring to know that komrade party Leader Novak was once concerned about the troops and the horrible threat of bringing democracy to them...
Analysis by the federal Election Assistance Commission, rejecting inflated Defense Department voting claims, estimated overseas and absentee military voting for the 2006 midterm elections at a disgracefully low 5.5 percent. The quality of voting statistics is so poor that there is no way to tell how many of the slightly over 330,000 votes actually were sent in by the absentee military voters and their dependents and how many by civilian Americans living abroad -- 6 million all total.

Clearly we must stop the threat of the spread of democracy in the US military before it turns into some form of dope smoking hippie dippie draft dodging moral cesspool, you know like the last time around when the draft dodgers were the dogerist of most!!!
Thank GOD we have RoboBushCheney!!!
They Bring It ON!!!
And what more do the troops need but a Unitary Executive!!!
It is what they are fighting for, so who cares what they are voting for...
