Are College Republicans Heeding the Call?

The call to organize "Finish the Job: Support Our Troops!" rallies January 30, that is, not a call to enlist to fight the war they support.

If they are, they're keeping it a secret. Or maybe they're sick of being asked why they want only "other people" to fight the war they support; just not them.

There's one rally in Washington DC January 30 6:30 pm at American Legion Post No. 8, 224 D St. SE, Metro Capital South.

Are there any others? Please provide details including website or news link, if you can, in the comments. Operation Yellow Elephant will spread the word.

UNC-Charlotte CRs will just watch the speech.

I'd like to share Rick Santrorum's latest thoughts on enlistment:[csuccess]=true

Put on a uniform? Hell, no! Put on a bumper sticker!

I would like you to answer a sincere question I have, because I really would like to know the answer.

In 2000 (after experiencing the Presidency of Clinton), the majority of our volunteer military voted for Bush.

Then Iraq happened, and as many suggest...went south, and is still going southward...

2004 came along, and the volunteer military voted for Bush OVERWHELMINGLY, again.

Is there no doubt that most of our volunteer military men and women are Republican?

Should we not balance the military and urge Democrats to join?

Thank you.

Thank you. Yes, it is true that members of our military prefer one party (our governing party) over another, as is their right as citizens.

But the opposite is not true: our governing party does not include a significant proportion of military personnel or veterans; there are substantial numbers of high-level officials in our governing party without military experience.

It's always better when all parts of our society participate in military service. Because it is the Republicans who won the election and who control our national government (both Houses of Congress and the White House; the President has yet to veto a single bill), we're starting with them.

If they fulfill their national responsibilities as the future leaders of our governing party, then we will ask their counterparts in the loyal opposition to do the same.

Please join us in this effort: January 30, at the College Republicans' "Finish the Job: Support Our Troops!" rally near you!

Thank you.

Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex. This includes hiring people on a just because you were in the military basis.

If you're talking about the Republicans in Congress...blame the voters that didn't vote for veterans, not those who were elected. Does not service to our country come in many forms, not just military service?

We're actually talking about our current military recruiting crisis and how the College Republicans, who are eligible to serve, seem to be supporting the war only if other people do the actual fighting.

As far as the voters who chose Republicans, well, they may be willing to VOTE for Republicans, but not to die for them.

That's why it's time for the College and Young Republicans to step forward and set a good example of national leadership for the rest of us.

Consider, twenty to thirty years from now when these idiot college republicans run for office, they will NOT have military service on their political resume.
Yes, they will have a hard time getting elected to future offices. The future of the republican party is in severe jeopardy because our current commander-in-lies broke the army, and the youth didn't back up his lies by enlisting.
