This really does make for gruesomely fun reading
. College Republicans meet in their national convention. All stand firm on the war, but few seem interested in fighting it. Many believe they can accomplish more fighting politically to support the war on the home front.
Vivian Lee says "Frankly, I want to be a politician. I'd like to survive to see that." Put her in the category of people who are ineligible for service because they want to survive into adulthood.
Chris Cusmano, a 21-year old from Rocky Point, NY says that "If there was a need presented, I would go." But he hasn't considered volunteering. Maybe someone should send him the clips about how the Army hasn't been able to meet its recruiting targets in months.
25-year old Matthew Vail, wtih Students for Bush, says "I'm in college right now, but who knows? The bug may get after college."
The fighting and dying for your country bug.
: Note this is from last year's
convention. I didn't realize that when I first read the piece. So at least the recruiting issue doesn't apply with the same force.)
