No active practicing homosexual should be allowed in the service; I don’t care if they “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

This type of perversion has no place especially in the service.

Repeal or whatever, the whole idea stinks that homosexuals are in any way acceptable with our fighting men.

Push pool designed for the politically correct answer. Simple Yes or No without qualifiers would be more honest.

The Sodomite revolutionaries in the Democratic Party and the “already Captured” Republicrats fundamentally changed our American Military to accommodate Barak Hussein Obama.

Agreed, DADT was just the foot in the door awaiting repeal. It was another example of incrementalism. But, your point is correct.

MITT ROMNEY: " One issue I want to clarify concerns President Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t pursue” military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share."

the repeal was completly political.

Senior officers were ORDERED to support it.

The so-called “surveys” we had within the military ultimately focused on one thing alone...one question...that was “If gays serve openly will you or will you not do your job?”

Of COURSE the answer is I will do my job as I am bigger than that, but the lying bastard scum in the media and in political circles all did the same lowly scumsucking thing...they went out and LIED and said that the huge number who said YES was SUPPORT for gays openly in the military.

Nothing, and I mean nothing could be further from the truth! I resent the politicans involved and the military leadership who sold out.
