Young Republicans and Don't Ask, Don't Tell

With our governing party controlling the Presidency, the Senate and the House, they must accept leadership responsibility and accountability for the current condition of our military.

Although Democratic Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia pushed Don't Ask, Don't Tell into law, American society has changed a lot in the past twelve years. The fine young people now considering enlisting in our military were in junior high or elementary school when Gays in the Military and Don't Ask, Don't Tell overwhelmed the previous President's new Administration.

The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) and 12 recently kicked out Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have filed a federal case in Boston to be allowed to serve again. The Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military (CSSMM) at the University of California at Santa Barbara has reported that even Arabic and Farsi linguists have been discharged for being gay. [So much for plans to invade Iran.]

One would think that, if Young Republicans choose not to enlist, they would at least encourage their party not to ban real servicemembers who still want to serve.

And, in the same vein, homosexuals in combat reduce a yellow elephants chance of dying there, AND decrease the chances of a yellow elephant getting turned down by a hot lesbian on the home front.

Seems like a win win to me.

I proudly served in active duty and agian in Guards with gay men and women. We all take the same oath to defend and protect etc... under our US Constitution. This is the same Constitution that is being mis-interpreted by the careerist, elitist, corrupt solons. Equality is clearly written in that document. but it appears we need more legislation.
Time to pass Freedom to Marry in this Granite State and this Country!!! Peace.

Peace without an army to enforce it is like a logical fallacy without a liberal to point out when others use them but not when he uses them.

I'm glad they don't let gays in the military because when the draft comes back I get to say "sorry but I'm gay".
