Republicans, do you feel that it is important for the President, the Commander in Chief, to have served in the military? Currently, only one 2012 Republican candidate for the presidency has served in the armed forces. Dr. Ron Paul was an Air Force flight surgeon during the Vietnam War.
Most of Senator McCain's appeal during the last election was his military experience and POW status. During the debates, he showed his ignorance about the economy, and he left the campaign trail briefly to return to the Senate to vote for TARP, which has now proven to be an ill-advised waste of tax payer money. Is military experience still important in a candidate?

No it is not important to me. I am more interested in what they plan to do for our economy now a days. I want to hear how wasteful spending will STOP. I want someone intelligent with a REAL PLAN.
