We bid farewell to our sons and daughters as they fly off to distant countries, spreading the idea of democracy to others, while gay and lesbian couples stay behind. This makes no sense in our God fearing society. There are already homosexuals in our military fighting side by side with our children, hiding their true nature in order to serve and defend our freedom. What, then, is the point of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" if it cannot protect our children from exposure to these alleged immoral individuals, individuals who love their country enough to lie in order to serve in the military? Military recruiters will tell individuals, including homosexuals, to withhold information that might prevent them from serving, which leads to the question "how do I know who is next to me in battle?" Do we then resort to lie detector tests for all recruits? Or brain scans to observe the medulla oblongata, which has been scientifically proven to be larger in homosexuals than in heterosexuals. Let us examine some facts, in the 1980's more than 15,000 homosexuals were discharged from the military, while in 1994, with the inception of President Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, 5,976 military personnel were ejected for homosexuality; in 1997 the total was 996.
The 1997 total was low compared to 2000, with 1,212 individuals ousted from our military and 1,250 were removed in 2001. During this same timeframe, our military was involved with the Iran-Iraq war, the conflict in Grenada, the invasion of Panama, and the Gulf War, just to name a few, And that only takes us through 1998. Think about how many of our children were wounded or killed while professed homosexuals sat safe at home. The "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy has put our children in harms way and, in effect, protected homosexuals. Imagine, if you will, our society in another 10 or 20 years under the current "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, as the heterosexual population is thinning, the homosexual population is not.
