Judge Roy Moore graduated from High School in 1965. He was admitted to West Point and graduated in 1969. He was deployed to Vietnam as the commander of the 188th Military Police Company. He was discharged from the U.S. Army as a captain in 1974. He then attended the University of Alabama School of law. He graduated in 1977 with a JD degree. He then went to work as a lawyer and later as a prosecutor.
This means that by the time Judge Moore completed his education at West Point, his service in Vietnam and his education in Law School, he was 30 years old. Now any of you who graduated high school in 1965 think back about the girls you knew in your high school class. Imagine returning home, really for the first time, twelve years later when you were 30 years old. You look up some of the girls you remember from high school. You quickly discover that a high percentage of the “good” girls are married and several of them already have children. In 1970 the median age of first marriages was 22.5 for men and 20.6 for women. Even now the average is 28.4 for men and 26.5 for women.
People remain oblivious to the sacrifice paid by a lot of Vietnam Veterans. In addition to getting shot at, we missed at least four years of our life. These were critical years. The years our fellow class mates used to graduate college. A majority of them were married, had graduated college, were in the workforce and probably owned their first home. By the time Roy Moore graduated from Law School he had sacrificed 12 years of his life.
Who did you expect him to date? Many of the girls age 19 to 24 were in college. Certainly the girls that would be interested in someone who had graduated from West Point and the University of Alabama would be in college. They would naturally be dating other college students. It is quite possible that Roy Moore started dating young girls because there simply weren’t many girls close to his own age that were available.
It is interesting that no one in the main stream media or the RINO Republicans figured this out. I do not know what will happen in the election today. What is clear is that if Roy Moore loses, every Republican running in a major election will be slammed with a similar hit piece, just before the election. In some cases the allegations will be true. In other cases they will not be true. In all cases it will be an attempt by the main stream media to defeat conservative candidates. At least one of Roy Moore’s accusers has admitted to forging a document. One should also not ignore something obvious. The other guys accused of sexual misconduct seem to continue the same pattern for their entire lives. I believe the most recent allegation against Roy Moore happened over 34 years ago. We can only hope that the good citizens of Alabama are not this naïve.
