    Voted no.


    Edit: Once you go in to vote, post the results here as it seems not only can you not vote again, you can't go back in to see the results again.

    I voted no. Repealing DADT (as well as DOMA) is a dead issue after the last US election.

    I voted NO. But that doesn't mean I will give up on DADT being repealed or DOMA or ENDA. And I will be keeping track of hiz honors Senators Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the presumed Speaker of the House Representative John Boehner and Senators Jim DeMint (darling of the Tea Party) and Lyndsey Graham of South Carolina. Mitch, John and Jim have all said multiple times BEFORE the election that it was there duty to see that President Obama fail. Now, they claim that they will work with anyone who wants to work together. And Mitch, at John's press conference, said the Republican's #1 priority is to make sure Obama is a one term president. John did roll his eyes though. So much for focusing on the needs of the country during the years BEFORE the 2012 election. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I voted no.
    This issue will vanish from importance, while the Republicans eviscerate the healthcare bill and cripple President Obama's legacy...fer shits and giggles.

    I pray I will be proven wrong tho.

    You're a total fuck up. You qualify to be a general in the US military or member of Congress.

    Not that it matters ... I voted no

    because with the newly elected republican majority it will be raining flying pigs in hell before they'd let that get off the ground

    .... and why would anyone in their right mind think that them passing a repeal of DADT would even be a possibility ................. did anyone live through the last ten years?

    i agree with the fact that the morons in this country elected all their rich, fat, white R. and now the rest of us will have to pay the price. DADT is a dead issue unless the courts force it out.

    I guess I'm in the minority of optimists who voted "Yes". I think we could be very surprised by the outcome of a vote -- if, in fact, it comes to vote.

    Next survey question: Will OBAMA sign an executive order ending the policy? It's not over 'till it's over.

    Yup. It will end by the Judicial branch. The recent, post-present injunction suspending DADT had a very good point about the 5th amendment, the right to due process.

    Based on recent observation, it is my firm opinion the our military brass couldn't plan or execute a successful panty raid!

    DADT is part of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and it takes an act of Congress to amend it. Obama cannot issue an order that would contravene the UCMJ.

    On that note, I think as long as the Pentagon's report is receptive to the idea then that will be all the political cover required to get at least some Republicans to vote for it. The Joint Chiefs, the Secretary of Defense and other higher ups in the military have expressed support for the idea of allowing gays to openly serve. As long as they say its ok the Republicans probably won't stand in the way.

    The only thing he can do is stop discharges under stop loss, since we are war. Although technically that could work because if people come out, you can't go back in the closet if another president attempted to overrule it.
