Fred Thompson Picks Up Most Important Endorsement, The Troops

Fred Thompson is about to embark on a campaign blitz that will take him all over Iowa. And after his performance at the last debate the "show of hands" game the moderator tried to get the candidates to play that Fred Thompson was'nt having any part of and let her know it, show's he's got his old gumption back and isnt there to play games.

Along the way Fred has picked up the most important endorsement of all that really counts, The Troops! If they want him to be thier Commander-In-Chief then that's good enough for me.

Here is a *snip* of a letter from one Soldier To Another:



Vets For Fred


Dear Fellow Veteran:

While most of us are stateside enjoying the comforts of home with family and friends during this holiday season, hundreds of thousands of brave men and women will remain abroad defending our freedom and that of others.

We are in the trenches stateside helping Fred Thompson run for President because he is the most experienced and consistent conservative leader of the major candidates. It is imperative to have a solid Commander-in-Chief to lead our nation during time of war, and Fred is that man.

Some of our troops in Iraq agree, and are showing their support for Fred there. You can see more on the Vets for Fred site.

Last month, Fred rolled out his plan to revitalize our military in a speech at the Citadel entitled: "Four Pillars of a Revitalized National Defense" which you can review by clicking here. His plan is being widely hailed as a substantive and sound policy proposal.

Fred's plan increases the defense budget to 4.5% of GDP and builds a "million member" ground force with and Army end strength of 775,000 organized into 64 brigade combat teams and increase active duty Marine Corps forces by 50,000 to 225,000. This will enable us to handle peacetime and wartime missions without wearing out our troops or increasing the vulnerability of the United States. As Fred stated, "Half-measures and small increases will no longer do."

Here is what a people have said about Fred's plan:

*Investor's Business Daily:

"Fred Thompson wants a million-man ground force and more modern equipment on the ground, in the air and on the water. The arsenal of democracy needs some retooling....Once again the U.S. military is depleted and exhausted...It may be time for another buildup like Reagan's that brought down the evil empire and gave us the means for victory in Desert Storm."

*The Weekly Standard:

"Fred Thompson staked out a Reaganesque position on defense spending and the need to increase the size of the military... Thompson is talking about a real build-up of the kind that this administration should have undertaken from the moment it entered office, but failed to do even after the attacks on 9/11."

*The National Review:

"While most candidates have called for increasing the size of the military, Thompson laid out a detailed plan to achieve that end...Thompson has set a standard of specificity, conservatism, and soundness that we would like to see the other Republican candidates measure up to."

Our troops, veterans and their families deserve a Commander in Chief who is ready on Day One, not someone who needs on-the-job training when it comes to foreign affairs and national security.

Fred Thompson will be ready to lead the minute he is sworn in, and that is why we are supporting him for President.

Sincerely yours,

I dunno, Marie. Fred Thompson may be a great guy and all, but here in Topeka, a guy has to have more than that going for him before people will vote for anybody who calls himself "Fred".

Ken,

You should visit Flopping Aces. Curt gave Fred Thompson his endorsement, and has been posting everything he can for his candidate.

Marie,

Fred endorsed by troops? But...but...I thought Ron Paul was the candidate of choice by our military?!

Just about every other Paulbot that posts always claims vet status.

Uncle P,

LOL! Well he has a Red Pick Up Truck!



Ken,

Thank's :-)



Jenn Chic,( Your Name is to long to type out all the time so I'm going make it shorter, maybe even initials. I have another friend that I have that I call CC already, I think I'm gonna call you JC :-) lol

I agree, this was some uplifting news if you like Fred.



Word,

LOL! I am almost positive the Troops dont want Ron Paul for thier Commander-In-Cheif.

Yeah I know, every Ron Paul supporter seems to have some kind of Military experience, or in some cases are SERVING RIGHT NOW!!

Yeah right, Paulbots lerking around, you are creepy.

I'm a vet and a reservist! Fred08!. And I'm stealing your post for my blog in Virginia. You'll get the hat tip. Please, Please help Fred win South Carolina.....

PS Ron Paul is an idiot. Y'all come by and visit. Let me know what you think. Lotsa Fred.....

Cargosquid,

I am helping Fred to win anything I can :-)

Steal whatever ya want!

I think I saw "The Liberal Lie The Conservative Truth" on your blog.

His name is Ken, and he lives in South Carolina and he is a Fred supporter also. He has had many interviews with the candidates already and he is still a Fred supporter :-)

He is your best bet at helping Fred in South Carolina.

I'm in Oklahoma but I do what I can do since we are not ground zero of any political wildness, yet lol

But I am working on getting whoever I can to vote for Fred.

He is the only Reagan Republican in the race and we want him.

You are welcome here anytime :-)

Posing in uniform as part of any partisan campaign is a violation of the UCMJ. Our men in uniform are free to participate in a voluntary status to support Ron Paul, or any other candidate, while on their own time. They are not permitted to pose in uniform with signs, or attend other campaign events while in uniform.

This is one reason why, when you do see a Veterans for ... group, they are retired veterans, not active duty personnel. We do not want to have an overtly politicized military in the United States.

A correction to previous posts: Ron Paul continues to lead all other candidates' combined contributions from our men who are deployed on active duty. I know blogs like this are partisan, but they needn't be propaganda outlets. I think that Old Fred Thompson would prefer that his supporters follow the Reagan example and have an honest, clean campaign.

J. Tyler,

Yeah I know, my son told me. And I dont know what these Soldiers were thinking, hopefully they wont get in any trouble, however you cant see thier faces that well or read thier names, so maybe no-one will know who these Soldiers are.

It's obvious they are in Iraq, but that's all I could tell.


Ron Paul may lead in money raised, but he doesnt even register in the polls.

I'm not real worried about Ron Paul.

I resent however the notion that you think this is a propaganda outlet.

Blogs are used for whatever the blog owner wishes to use them for, recipies, poetry, politics etc...

I'm sure Ronald Reagan and Fred Thompson wouldnt mind me voicing my opinion on a certain candidate, and hoping they win.

There is nothing dirty about that!
