    Please enlist and serve in the military first before making that decision.

    Too bad. He's putting personal feelings before the security of the U.S. but that's one thing liberals excel at.

    Don't ask, Don't tell, Don't vote! I will not vote for any Democratic candidate until this discriminatory policy has been repealed. Discrimination is always wrong! Back up your rhetoric with actions. With an overwhelming majority in both houses of congress there can be no more excuses. Don't take our votes and our money for granted.

    I don't see why we still have it. Britian and other allies allow homosexuals to serve openly. We have lost many people in the military with vital skills because of this. I sayw that those that want to serve should be able to do so without worry about who they are. If they can serve the country with honor and not jeopardize it, then let them serve.
