housetrancformer saidlook at you people, you are supposed to be soliders in the worlds greatest army but you are hiding what you are from your own country. Thats not strength , thats weakness of character. Again have fun serving and paying into a system that holds you as less then a citizen. Ill take my dishonorable disharge to go please!
And what are you actually suggesting with giving your rhetoric (above)?
Are you really so selfish, to be ready to forfeit even more of the country's strength and morale by making it even weaker than DADT already achieves?
I'm reminded of the expression "to cut off one's nose to spite one's face."
As I said before, we live in a country that thinks we are not good enough to be married, not good enough to serve in its military and die for it. If I were a monarch my soliders would be chosen for their pyshical and mental abilities and certainly not discharged because they like to sleep with men. I stand by what I said 100% and thank goodness we live in America where i am entitled to do so!
One can be a liberal and still be patriotic. (Patriotic doesn't mean anti-foreign or chauvinistic.)
Yes, there are bad thing happening, but it isn't in our interests to just mock and degrade our country. What you posted was counterproductive and fatalistic. It's a bad as those people saying that they wanted to leave the country during the Bush administration years instead of standing up for our rights. As shameful as those USA citizens who hide behind the Canadian maple-leaf flags they put on their baggage when abroad so people won't assume that they are from the USA.
You're not a monarch in the US and you're not going to be. But if you are so restless, DO something regarding DADT. Write letters to people in government, speak with people in the streets to get them involved as well.
This country is, among other things, its' people and their voices. It's important what we think about ourselves and what we are doing about it. If one's so ashamed as to bash it to the extent that it hurts the men/women who serve in the armed forces, then that person is as guilty as the fools who support DADT.
