With the help of millions of Americans who have had enough of President Obama’s  and his Democrat Party’s failed economic and foreign policies,  the Republican Party is positioning itself to win back the White House, and to take complete control of the U.S. government.

But while Americans have finally seen through the phony “Hope and Change” message of the Democrat Party, can Republicans coalesce behind one presidential candidate without destroying him or her in a contested Republican presidential primary race?

Probably not.

So, who will be the GOP’s 2016 presidential nominee?

Will it be Rubio, Walker, Perry, Cruz, or Carson?

Regardless of which of the probable presidential candidates wins the GOP  nomination in 2016, none of them will have had any military experience, except for Texas Governor Rick Perry.

That’s right, only Perry brings a military background to the table in 2016.

In a time of economic uncertainty, and  numerous foreign threats piling on to harm the U.S., does the next U.S. President need to have military experience to convey true American leadership and project “peace through strength” around the world?
