Yep, those in the uniformed services will always have the majority supporting the candidate who supports them.

Conservatives believe that the Fed should be small and that it's main role is national defense. Socialists prefer a big gov't nanny state with intrusion into our freedoms, at least the freedoms that conservatives hold dear. They must destroy our institutions first, however, in order to do so and where better than inside our burgeoning gov't bureaucracy.

Nothing odd about it. An awful lot of Civil Serpants are just people on the .gov feed-bag. The welfare advocates and the social service people. If you'd look at them and break them down by job description, you might find that, for example, that FBI agents are conservative and that social service people are libs.

Let's face it, if you're making , say, 80K/year as a social service person, the LAST thing that you want is some mean old conservative to come into office and eliminate your job.
