The Troops Hate America: Further Evidence

Our soldiers must really hate freedom, here are the percentage of contributions given by soldiers to our current slate of Presidential contenders:

Group 1
Ron Paul 26.23%
Barack Obama 24.02%
Hillary Clinton 11.08%
Bill Richardson 5.59%
John Edwards 2.63%
Joe Biden 0.84%
Mike Gravel 0.16%
Dennis Kucinich 0.05%
Chris Dodd 0%

Group 2
John McCain 18.31%
Mitt Romney 4.05%
Rudy Giuliani 2.44%
Mike Huckabee 1.84%
Tom Tancredo 1.63%
Duncan Hunter 1.05%
Sam Brownback 0.07%
Tommy Thompson 0%
Jim Gilmore 0%
John Cox 0%

Do you notice the difference between those in Group 1 and those in Group 2? Group 1 represents all of the candidates that want to see an end to the war in Iraq, which had 70.6% of all donations from the troops. Group 2 wants this war to last indefinitely and they got 29.4% of all donations from troops.

Joe Lieberman is going to be hopping mad when he finds out that the troops are being partisan.
