Full title: Paul Ryan says reversal of DADT repeal is step in wrong direction, sets out to revive American dream.

I am amazed that these cowards pretend to represent us. Obama goes full gay marriage, and the GOP obliges by retreating as usual. All they do on social issues is try and fail to hold ground, never attack, never advance, never force the enemy to react. Wars, culture or otherwise are never won like that.

I suspect right now Ryan is throwing a nerf football against the wall over the bad call at the end of the Packers game.

Unless his intent is to go back and kick all the homo's out of the military then he is for the destruction of the finest fighting force in the world.

because they never agreed with us on any of those issues, they just used those issues to get our votes, with no intention of ever actually doing anything to stop this kind of thing.

we are all being played for suckers.

and now we are stuck with this Romney putz who’s going to insure Obama gets re-elected.

Unbelievable.

I can’t even quite get my head wrapped around this. If you have the power to try and change something that is wrong, and you don’t try, then I have to question if you ever thought it was wrong in the first place.

Going back to DADT is the WRONG direction? This ticket is driving me insane.

"Now that it's done, we should not reverse it,"

So does that go for Obamacare as well? Lower taxes and less spending in Sodom and Gomorrah is not my idea of a conservative victory.

Its frustrating. R&R are good on economy, good on foreign affairs but the moral values crowd is told to go pound sand as always. Notice how not a single Democrat running for national or statewide office is actually pro returning to DADT (not that DADT was conservative to begin with).

Dunno what the problem is. Plenty of Freepers said principles don’t matter. So it’s OK. But if the Dems do it...well THEN it’s a problem.

THANKS FOR NOTHIN’ GUYS!

If I were him, my answer would be it’s up to the military commanders to decide what the policy should be to create the best military effectiveness and he will support their decision. I thought we had agreed that the military knew how to run itself better than civilians in Washington D.C. It’s a good political answer, because it punts the decision to the military. But I think it’s the right answer too. Conservative principles dictate that you let decisions be made at the local level or the people closest to knowing the ground truth of the situation.

Even if it’s true that the commanders told him they don’t want the policy reversed, he shouldn’t go all the way out on the limb to say “it’s done” for good. There hasn’t been enough time to evaluate how the change in policy has affected military readiness, for one thing.

Answer to your question - they don’t really see anything wrong with DADT repeal. They had to vote with GOP to cover their butts, but they are not about to expand an ounce of political capital to advance morality.

"Now that it's done, we should not reverse it,"

The official motto of the Republican Party. Sure they may cut taxes and the RATE of growth concerning federal spending, but not much else, even most of their Supreme Court picks are filled with disappointments as well.

This is a culture war that is near to bullets and Ryan knows it. Lets get rid of Obama and we’ll fight the next battle. Ryan is a sharp cookie and a great VP pick. The homo issue is a distraction the Marxists would love to make us focus on. It’s one of thousands but the Marxists know how much media traction it would get and Ryan did not take their bait.

If Obama wins the election, we’ll all see a rollback on homosexual “rights” and feminism such as won’t be believed as his Islamism kicks in. Our whole way of life will become very different very soon.

Blah, blah, blah...and get elected then do nothing. Why do you think Dems have advanced government so much over the 20th century and early this century? Because who dares wins, get a clue. Dems are not ashamed to peddle and PERPETUALLY push insane policies for decades on end, but Repubs are scared to death of being correct over one election cycle, give me a break.

Your handle should be cowardice or death.

"Now that it's done, we should not reverse it," Ryan told WPTV NewsChannel 5 during a visit to Miami.

Ryan is correct . . . . . . . if we NEVER again want to have the best military on this planet.

IMO, the repeal of DADT will cause a ton of highly qualified, motivated and dedicated patriots to abandon our military. Anyone who has never served in the military has no idea how close the sleeping quarters are.

Well, hell, then I’d rather see it reversed but I’d settle for at least enforcement of the current policy which says sexual preference is personal and private. It means no gay pride, no gay events, no special gay emphasis. Can we get someone to at least go that far?

I haven't served, but the repeal of DADT has already proven that homosexuals were serving in the military and were already in those sleeping quarters. I would expect there are still policies that would punish anyone for engaging or attempting to engage in lewd activity.

That’s exactly what these party hyjackers are up to, Extortion-Care. RomneyHillaryRobertsBernackeites.

Plants, in the Post-Reagan hyjacked GOP Government Fascist Party.

“Replace” propaganda “it”. At the overt extortion of as many they can exploit. Front door phony no-collateral financial instrument and debt bailout.

The public with honest worked for assets, has had it with the facade.

Already sexual attacks on men by men have increased tremendously. Already homos are on the march, chaplains are silenced, it’s just the beginning; it will get much, much worse unless and until it goes back to “Ask, and if the answer is wrong, out the damn door!”

Homosexuals DO NOT BELONG IN THE MILITARY and there is so much evidence to prove this that only those pushing a depraved agenda ignore it.

America is dead and gone. The final nail in the coffin was the 2008 election of an African communist as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Hey, America had a great run... remember it fondly for what it was. There’s no point hanging onto the past. The upcoming election is meaningless.

The United States of America is now little more than a land mass populated by cretins, ingrates, and parasites who have absolutely no respect for the military and who vote for big government to confiscate money from their neighbors so that it may be “redistributed” to them in exchange for their votes. It is not an America worth defending anymore. That America no longer exists.

The parasites outnumber the hosts now, and there’s no going back. America is dead.
The Democrats have won.

Nothing lasts forever (shrug) and there’s no point crying or whining about it. My recommendation to every decent human left out there is to throw some cold water in your face and proceed to ‘Plan B’. Figure out how to grab every government dime you possibly can before the parasites who comprise the Democrat party “base” gobble it all up. Look for angles. Look for refuge. Hide what you have. Get under the radar and game the system. Every man for himself.

Good luck, everybody.

I have a feeling Ryan will start walking this statement back within 48 hours.

Especially since the very influential Ralph Reed was on TV tonight announcing the start of a program for a get-out-the-vote crusade beamed to the Evangelical Right.

Talk about the Evangelicals being blind-sided by Ryan on the same day.

Every guy who has ever serve has known that there were homos in the military. But those homos kept it very, very quiet. Why? Because otherwise they'd be booted. The difference now is that the homos can be as open as they want, and if the regular guys say anything about it, it's the regular guys who get punished. All you have to do to see what's coming to the military is to look at what's happened to corporate America since all of this pro-gay and feminist nonsense - corporate America is now one of the most PC areas of society. So it shall be with the military.

The way this country has descended into depravity and stupidity, not only would I never serve in the military now, but it makes me regret that I ever put my ass on the line for this country of spoiled, worthless, amoral, degenerates.

Well some are protected on high like this Lt. Col who was caught hitting on an enlisted in Afghan. Keep in mind this chick was a squadron commander, who needed to be eventually babysat until her replacement arrived (Who was not very happy). She should be locked up but as far as I could tell the chick went right back to her previous assignment Stateside.

Of course this is anecdotal and the press does not mention these inefficient problems so all is well in same sex disorder land. Whatever, better to pretend no one knows and keep a lid on the perversion but I guess we are just too enlightened by our own good. Same goes for females with long tours on ships and subs, they won't get pregnant, no way, impossible, lol.

Triple Negative. Animal Farm ... here we come.
Yes, I’m on your side. But this language is a reflection of the collective hypnosis, sucks that this is part of the conversation. Sucks for Paul that he has to talk this way.
