Majority of veterans respond that the U.S. should follow
non-interventionist foreign policy LAKE JACKSON, Texas – Today, the Pew Research Center released a pollhighlighting veteran views on America’s ongoing, decade-long ‘War on Terror.’ The following was found in the poll:

  • 59 percent of post-9/11 veterans respond that the U.S. should focus on domestic issues versus be active in world affairs;
  • About half (51 percent) of post-9/11 veterans respond that the use of military force to fight terrorism creates hatred that breeds more terrorism;
  • 33 percent of veterans respond that neither war (Afghanistan nor Iraq) has been worth the cost;
  • Veterans and the public agree: The nation should not bring back the military draft, which ended in 1973. 82 percent of post-9/11 veterans said they are against reinstating the draft; and
  • 44 percent of post-9/11 veterans report that they have had difficulties readjusting to civilian life, and 37 percent say that — whether or not they have been diagnosed – they have suffered from post-traumatic stress.

As a 2012 presidential candidate, Dr. Paul has garnered more donations from active-duty military than all of the other Republican presidential candidates combined, and more than President Barack Obama as well. Paul’s consistent adherence to Constitutional principles regarding American foreign policy has gained him broad support among veterans and active military alike.

In late September the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign released its latest television ad.  The 60-second spot titled “He Served” highlights Paul’s military service and unrivaled commitment to veterans.
