Title of the thread says it all. I don't usually post too much and am more than happy to just lurk and read the threads and comments. However, after reading some of the more recent posts (e.g. the one's supporting Trump), I am wondering if some people are off their medications. I considered myself a Republican for most of my life but now support Obama because of what I see as the Republican party's movement toward exclusion and pandering to the crazies. The fact that there are prominent people in the Republican party still supporting Trump and his "birthed" movement is insane. Obama is clearly a citizen and there is no evidence to the contrary except for some conspiracy nuts "secret evidence" that is unobtainable. I have worked for the government my entire life and was there when LTC Lakin disgraced his country and disobeyed a direct order to deploy (a direct order for his superior, a MOH winner, and the only one on active duty at that time). He was wrong and so are the birthers. What happened to civil discourse about real political issues and the candidates? Why do people on this board have to bring up crazy conspiracy issues to justify their case when a discussion on the merits would work? To espouse these crazy beliefs makes your arguments ineffective and weak. Example: the reply from a former military member who stated that President Obama would never be able to get a security clearance under him because of illegal drug use and lying about it ( whomever you are, you are insane and thank you for retiring because your information is so hilariously wrong it doesn't deserve consideration). The President will receive a security clearance no matter what. TLR: What happened to the rational folks on Glock Talk? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
