2008 Election Season

General NewsAs-Salaamu Alaiukum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

With the impending election season upon us, we thought it might be a good idea to remind each other of some important matters.

DoD regulations state that uniformed or civilian Defense Department
employees cannot, among other things, "knowingly solicit or discourage the
political activity of any person who has business with DoD; engage in
political activity while on duty; and engage in political activity while in
any Federal workplace."
Additionally, directly endorsing a candidate while identifying oneself as a
member of the Armed Forces is an issue. Please read the following for
further information:

That being said, you are fighting to defend the freedom of this land. You do have many rights politically and most importantly, you have the right to vote. As a Muslim and as a US Armed Forces Service Members, you should consider this right more than just a right; You should consider it a duty. Make it a point to be a registered voter. Make sure you get an absentee ballot. Make sure you vote no matter where you are in the world. Every command has someone to assist you in making sure you can carry out your duties. Make full use of those resources.

So out of curiosity, Who are people leaning towards voting for? Are you taking the day off to go vote tomorrow? (We do not get the day off, but I will stop by the voting place after work, Insha'Allah).
