You Posted," I don't understand how some posters have already voted while our military are being denied the right!!"
The reason that the democrats have in the past and are presently doing everything they can to disenfranchise the young men and women serving in the military overseas is that the democrats realize that the servcemen and women are republicans and would vote that way. "Perhaps this administration's reluctance to guarantee the voting rights of soldiers is due to the fact that the military leans further to the right politically than the general voting public."
"An April 8-11 Gallup poll found Americans overall were 26% Republican, 29% Democratic and 42% independent. A survey of 1,800 active duty troops in the April 11 Military Times discovered that GIs were 41% Republican, 29% Democrat and 32% independent."
"In close elections, as many races promise to be in this turbulent year, military votes could make the difference. An estimated 17,000 military voters were disenfranchised by missed deadlines and administrative glitches in 2008. Such votes could have changed the results of the Minnesota race that made comedian Al Franken a U.S. senator. Maybe that's the whole idea."
"In the 2000 Bush-Gore recount battle, Team Gore tried to disenfranchise soldiers, sailors and airmen willing to die for our right to vote because it was likely such votes would be more likely Republican."
"In Bill Sammon's blockbuster book, "At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal the Election," it was revealed how Mark Herron, who said he was retained by the DNC on election night to help shepherd Democratic presidential election lawsuits through the local courts, sent a five-page letter to Democratic attorneys throughout Florida giving them tips on how to lodge protests against military ballots."

The democrats say they support he troops.... But... allowing the young men and women to have the right to have their votes counted isn't in the democrats best interests especially since they vote republican.
