Please no personal attacks. Nothing ever gets done when you get personal. Most people will feel threads in places like this are useless, but I disagree. I think regular people that discuss these issues go to the polls with a different out look. The polls are where we the regular people have our words heard. We talk things out hear, get the opinions and ideas from the other side. Maybe we are missing something. Maybe, just maybe it might open your mind to a different view.
The problem with gays in the military is most of the people that will vote or decide what will happen have never and will never give their life for their country. They don't have the nerves to stand up and take a bullet for their fellow man. Yet they think they should have a right to decide for all the men and women who do. I say we let the people that have served and are serving decide. Now I know that wont happen. But I know that allowing gays to serve openly in the military WILL put them in harms way. It takes a special kind of person to be able to kill another person. I'm not talking about the kid that wants to go to college so they join for 2 or 4 years. I'm talking about the people that join for life. They have been in 4 or 5 wars or conflects, they've killed so many people in battles. These people tend to be very hard core and this will be the person that will feel is crossed.
You might thing these people need to be dealt with, but we need them. Unless we go to a draft, or like other countries make all people server, we need these over the top killers. With out them we would not be Americans, some one would have taken us over a long time ago.
