basically it just proves that people that support the war refuse to die for the country.

Biased and disgustingly so. Fortunately, in the U.S. you don't have to enlist, and aren't required to back up your political beliefs with military service.

At least these people have an opinion and are willing to be active in politics (it appeared that the interviewer was at some sort of convention); that's a lot more than you can say for many Americans.

This video is biased propaganda against war supporters. If you agree with this video then answer this: does being against the war give you an excuse not to serve?

Of course it does! What kind of ridiculous question is that?

Oooookay.

So this young wanna-be propagandist seems to start out by accusing "College Republicans" of being too non-violent to actually enlist in the military in support of the war.

Then, when he is pegged as a "College Propagandist" (just made that up), he is informed that he will not be forced to leave, yet is asked to leave.

He then makes a spectacle of himself. "I'm doing an interpretive dance," he says, goading them on and just begging to be removed.

When he is then informed that he is "now ... being a disturbance", he protests, even as he gives way like the French army at a fireworks display, that he is being dealt with with "violence".

O, how I miss my college days.

Ahem...its about hippocrate chickenhawks. The bias is in young college republicans touting how important war is, how important it is for other people children must die...

I agree with Avingard. If you knew me, you wouldn't think so. But this country is great because basically nothing goes unnoticed. I happened to glance at the paper today and President Bush Jr. and Al Gore were meeting to discuss Global Warming. Hey, doesn't Al Gore's kid can serve the military. But he chooses not to, and that's his choice. Perhaps he feels that his greater contribution for his country is being here, abusing prescription medication and breaking the law. Sorry I couldn't help myself.

That's a gross non-sequitor and trollery and I didn't mind telling the mods I thought so. Whoever said Al Gore's son believed in the war?

Where did I say Al Gore's son believed in the war? I can only deduct that being the son of a vice president, he must have an opinion on politics. And I don't see him swinging either way. Anyway, congratulations for using "trollery" in a sentence.

I am sorry, I did not see the memo requiring all college republicans to enlist.

Maybe I missed something while I was on vacation.

So if you support the military or any given war at all you should, in order not to be a hypocrite, join the army?

I'm against the war, before anyone decides to sling that mud, but this is ridiculous. Your beliefs and your choice to serve in the military are only as connected as you want them to be.

By the standards in that video, why aren't those who are against the war looked down upon for not marching to D.C. to protest? Why aren't democrats or republicans scoffed at for not volunteering to help out their favorite candidates? Why aren't those who believe human's are the cause of global warming morally required to remodel their houses to be carbon neutral?

You can't base the validity of someone's opinion's on their action's, only the quality of their argument. The person in this video is not asking anyone to explain their beliefs or justify their opinions; he's entirely justifying the bashing by wether or not they choose to serve. That's why I say it's biased propaganda.

Action's speak louder than words, but actions don't constitute opinions.

btw, the other people's children will die line isn't valid. Those children have the same right to choose wether or not to serve as the 'chicken hawks'.

I don't think interviewing a few college kids at a convention really proves anything.

Should they serve?

I think so, if they are otherwise qualified.

Should they be allowed to pursue an education now?

Why not?

We need good officers.

Are they cowards?

Maybe?

Are they Republicans?

Who knows?

These videos prove nothing.
