Sign Petition Supporting ROTC at Marquette
The link to the petition is here.
Of course most conservatives will be happy to sign it, but we think a fair number of liberals will too.
Consider, for example, this comment by a liberal poster on the GOP3.COM blog.
ROTC won’t be shut down and everyone knows it. It gives too much to the school for being there and it’s far too helpful for students who need it.That’s the right spirit. Feel free to disagree with the Iraq War if you want, but don’t try to stifle a program that has large benefits for both students and the university.
It’s not the ROTC’s fault that the government is sending soldiers to fight an unjust war. I’m pretty sure it’s Congress’s fault for approving the insane “First Strike” law and not invoking their power to end the war, when ending the stinkin’ war was 99% of the reason anti-war Democrats were elected to congress last year.
If you don’t want to serve in the military, by all means don’t join ROTC. But have a little respect for those who do.
