    Oh, those liberal anti-military college campuses just can’t catch a break, can they? First, Congress wipes away their former excuse for keeping the Reserve Officer’s Trainings Corps (ROTC) off campus, the Clinton-era “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy, and now the leader of the liberal Left is urging them to bring ROTC and military recruiters back to campus. Yes, you heard me correctly – President Obama actually supports our pro-ROTC cause.

    President Obama said during the State of the Union address last night:

    “Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love.  And with that change I call on all our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and ROTC.  It is time to leave behind the divisive battles of the past, it is time to move forward as one nation." (Emphasis my own.)

    Is this just empty rhetoric? Perhaps, but it’s an admission of guilt too. The President knows that a college campus banning ROTC and military recruiters because of anti-Vietnam sentiments or a federal policy that has now been repealed is simply unjust.

    Your move, liberal anti- military college campuses with an ROTC ban in place. (And no Princeton, forcing ROTC to operate as an “outside organization” doesn’t count as “opening your doors.”)

    • I have to say banning JROTC is just anetohr liberal attempt at control of information. If you remove a system or mind set that is not favorable to a socialist/liberal agenda early in a persons life they are less likely to be American. That seems to be the general plan of the left side of politics. If kids don't learn to be patriotic and don't learn a sense of self respect and responsibility they will remain weak and controllable. I was in JROTC in high school and its not a club. It is in fact a class and it has a period everyday just like any other class. I left high school and went out on my own for a year and eventually after weighing my options and thinking carefully about my future ( something I learned in JROTC )I proudly joined the U.S. Navy and currently serve overseas. I'm working on my college degree and learning everyday the meaning of hard work and true citizenship. When are people just going to stop being politically correct, the crap in San Fransisco is just anetohr attempt by the socialist liberals to control and filter information into the minds of the American youth. Stop questioning whether its right or wrong and just call it.
