Suka speaks: This dangerous "landmine" shouldn’t escape the attention of the Department of Education. It is unbelievable that this nation is left behind in graduating students with bachelor’s degree because of deleterious national politics that invades the campus. I don’t blame radical politicians that poison the mind of the nation’s studentry into hating the Government, although it cannot be denied that it is dangerous. I mean, Ron Paul is Ron Paul. We may be against his "ideas" because it is destructive and dangerous, but the right to espouse and express those "ideas" is constitutional, and I have only but the highest respect for that right.

Universities are blameworthy for lack of collegial responsibility in seeing to it that the students’ time in the campus is not wasted on these so-called "worthless activities".

The rate of college students dropping out of school is alarming. "Just 56 percent of those who enroll in a four-year college earn a bachelor’s degree."

It threatens growth. Worldwide, we are "12th place in the ratio of young people with the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree, well behind Russia, Canada, Korea and Japan."

Too much fun due to lack of proper university guidance [28%] and financial pressure [38%] are the top culprits for this landmine. High College Dropout Rate Threatens U.S. Growth – The Fiscal Times.

Students waste their time associating themselves with crappy politicians, i.e., in off-campus campaigning as student volunteers, and in listening to political bull craps and bullyrags. MSU students wasting their time listening to Ron Paul is a good example. It is wasting their time because what the students will hear from Ron Paul are what he had been telling the farmers across the country to violate the law in the name of liberty and freedom.

Specific example: the Federal Government had issued a warning that fresh milk is 150 times more dangerous than pasteurized dairy. To protect the public, anyone who makes a business of producing and distributing or selling unpasteurized raw milk and dairy products is against the law [FDA]. But Ron Paul is telling the farmers and dairy consumers that to drink raw milk is their freedom to choose what to eat or drink. Just recently, he also publicly declared that there is no reason why farmers should not be allowed to grow hemp although he knew that this is against the law.

All of these bravados are at the expense of the farmers and gullible consumers. It is obvious that this politician doesn’t care if those who listen to him die or go to jail as long as he gets his television coverage, like any publicity maniac always do. Students waste their time listening to this kind of bull crap.

Fun-loving students need a break from their daily academic routine. They are having some fun listening to politicians like Ron Paul. Their excuse for gallivanting with their school time supporting Ron Paul is even macabre, although they know that he is "unelectable".

One MSU student summarized this vain excuse. "We are going to continue to support Ron Paul even if he doesn't win the republican nomination …it's about the ideas …"

It is precisely because of this politician’s anomalous if not invasive ideas that students should focus their time studying rather than wasting it not only in worthless but also destructive political activities. Joseph Vanderville
