A College Republican Responds
Blake Adami of the College Republicans at Texas A&M responded to our March posting.
Howdy, this is Blake Adami and I just wanted to make a correction about what was posted above. I did receive an e-mail asking if I had served in the military to which I replied no. I was a bit unclear to the other [standard Operation Yellow Elephant] questions that I was being asked, so I thought I would explain myself now.
After graduating high school I went on to Texas A&M University, where I am currently at. After I graduate here, I plan on attending law school. For these reasons, I do not plan on joining the military.
If in time a draft was ever reinstated and my number was called, I would happily serve my country. I also fully do support President Bush. I had the honor to vote for him in the past election and fully support the war in Iraq.
I hope this clarifies some of the confusion. If you have any questions for me, please let me know.
Thanks and Gig'em, Blake Adami.
Thanks for Answering The Question. Frankly, you have more guts than many other College Republicans we have contacted. All of that said, however, given your support of the war and our military's continuing recruiting challenges, we nevertheless urge you to consider changing your current plans (not for your career, but just for a while) in order to Support President Bush where you are clearly needed. As a future leader of our governing party, it's up to you to set a good example for the rest of us.
