I am disappointed in the filibustering of the Defense Authorization Bill on the 21st of September 2010. I know excuses given by Senate Republicans are just that, excuses. It is shameful that we live in a country that treats certain soldiers as if their willingness to sacrifice their lives for us means less just because they love differently. When a soldier dies it is not their sexual orientation that is printed on their headstone but their name and their rank and that is all that should matter. The Republican Party has long claimed to be the party that most strongly supports our brave soldiers so playing politics with their Civil Liberties is NOT acceptable.
I ask that you demand that Don't Ask Don't Tell be repealed! It has already been ruled unconstitutional by two U.S. Judges. We are a country that expresses so much pride in our liberty that it's existence makes us seem hypocritical. The integrity of our country rests in the hand of you and your fellow Senators. Do not disappoint your people. If it is not repealed I will hold the Republican leadership in this country responsible as will many others.
Your country is watching you.
