Josh Levy is a young man I admire very much for standing up for what he believes in. His blog, "Win the War," advocates victory in Iraq and he backs it up with sound arguments and background information. He talked with the Charlottesville Daily Progress about school, his role in supporting the troops, and his future. One of his passions is his support for John McCain for President.
Josh organized a "Win the War" rally last June in Charlottesville when anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan was in town, a job he very successfully succeeded in by pulling in over 100 pro-victory supporters from the surrounding area including SWAC. It was the first time I had met him in person and I found him organized, pleasant, and determined in his beliefs. He was not afraid to stand up to the rabid anti-war protesters. He was standing up for the silent majority, the people who could not be there or felt uncomfortable in the presence of people who shouted them down and called them names.
The Daily Progress put it well:
... with the next presidential election around the corner, Josh Levy, a third-year University of Virginia law school student, believes it is critical to speak to what he views as America’s new "silent majority": those who support or could be persuaded that it is in America’s best interest to achieve what Levy and others view as victory in Iraq. Levy organized a "pro-victory" rally in July, when anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan came to Charlottesville, and is thinking about starting a citizens advocacy group to argue, in part, that withdrawal now would mean "retreat."It is an excellent article and well worth the read. Carl applauds Josh over at Spark It Up!!
But he knows that time is of the essence.
"When a president takes a country to war … an invisible clock starts ticking," said Levy, 34. "[Americans are] not going to wait forever."
