I gave a talk tonight to a Political Science Class at Baldwin Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. Professor Tom Sutton said as Franklin Delanore Roosevelt asked the country to sacrifice during war time, the professor said he is personally thinking about sacrificing for the duration of the Iraq War. He said he was considering imposing a 50 cent a gallon of gasoline tax on himself. Professor Sutton said he’d then send the money to a fund to help soldiers coming back with, say, PTSD symptomology, or other problems. I have so often heard on the campaign trail how it almost feels, to many Americans, like we’re really not at war as we go on with our day to day tasks with hardly a thought to Iraq. Making a personal choice to sacrifice for the war effort on a regular basis, I believe, would be a good thing.
