A Petition Requesting
the U.S. Congress
to Stop Funding Additional Troops
Whereas, Congress has the responsibility to decide whether to go to war under Article I, Section 8; and
Whereas, it’s not up to the United States to be able to choose the government of other countries, and
Whereas, Congress has the responsibility to focus on conditions at home in America, addressing infrastructure, putting millions of Americans back to work, saving millions of people from foreclosure and helping 47 million people to receive health care; and
Whereas, Congress must acknowledge public sentiment in our communities, where people are desperate for jobs, trying to protect their wage levels, worried about their investments, their savings, their security; now therefore,
I STRONGLY URGE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO VOTE AGAINST ANY FUNDING FOR ADDITIONAL TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN AND THAT CURRENT FUNDING BE REASSESSED AND REDIRECTED TO THE ECONOMIC NEEDS OF AMERICANS AT HOME.

But this street theater was not against the wars or federal government spending and debt that jeopardizes their future or any other worthwhile cause that students should be speaking out against.
No, it was over a f**king basketball game.
