I’m so pissed off right now.
I know everyone’s already written plenty about what Republicans did yesterday regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. But I haven’t been able to rant yet.
I was shocked when I heard the final vote count. I can’t believe that that many members of Congress think so little of gays and lesbians in the military that they would deny them the ability to serve openly like everybody else.
I don’t know whether to blame Republicans for blocking equality to gain votes, or Christians who push this idiotic notion that giving GLBT people the same rights as everyone else will make our society worse, or President Obama for not simply signing an Executive Order to end DADT.
We need more Democrats in the Senate. Get out and vote, even if you don’t think your vote will make a difference. Better yet, drag your friends to the polling booth, tell everyone on Facebook to get off their ass on Election Day, and make them vote with you. It’s sad that even with the majority in Congress, we still can’t accomplish common sense legislation. But the Republicans aren’t capable of governing — they’ve shown that time and time again, especially the past couple years. There’s no reason to keep any of them in power.
Especially John McCain, who spearheaded the fight against repeal, and then put his fingers in his ears while reporters asked him questions and pretended like no one was saying anything of importance.
“Liberty and justice for all” my ass.
There’s no good reason to keep this policy in place. Let the bigots defend themselves.
