Senate Votes Today: Support Our Troops by Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

OK, everybody. This is it. The Senate is to vote today at around 11:00 a.m. Last Wednesday, the House passed this legislation with a 75-vote margin.

We know that our troops' morale will be greatly improved if the Senate does the right thing and repeals "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Here's why:

Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" will show our troops deployed in harm's way that the American people, through their elected Representatives and Senators in the Legislative Branch of our government, really care about them, that they have the character to discern the right thing to do, and the courage actually to do it.

More that mere platitudes by political wanna-bes, and more than the College Republicans collecting discount store-bought stuff like Chapstick at their National Convention in 2005, to box up and send somewhere, because they don't know any enlisted servicemembers or junior officers, those most at risk in combat.

Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is about national leadership responsibility to make the tough decisions that the American people elected YOU to do.

'Sort of like Sending Something Homemade.
