Don't Ask Don't Tell's Days Are Numbered

 

 Elections have consequences.

And you only have to look to Senator Mark Udall to see why. Yesterday, Senator Udall proved again that he is a champion for equality and national security. You just have to watch this video to see what I mean.

Watch the video and add your voice.

Lesbians and gay men know how to be warriors. Just ask 9-time decorated Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach, an 18-year F-15 fighter pilot who is now no longer flying missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, but fighting to keep his job. Nobody asked, and he didn't tell. He was outed by a third party, and his career hangs in the balance.

At the same time as it has kicked out thousands of highly qualified individuals because of their sexual orientation, the military has repeatedly lowered its entrance qualifications in order to recruit new people. You can now become a member of the service if you're a felon, but not if you're gay or lesbian. We need to end this madness.

Three quarters of Americans support gay men and lesbians serving openly in the military. Vast majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and unaffiliated people. Not to mention Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Why? Senator Udall said it best.

On his blog, he said it's time "to repeal this misguided law, which requires gay service members to lie about their identity in order to serve in our armed forces. Not only does it go against the principles and the standards our military relies on,it puts our national security at risk."

Quoting Republican former Senator Barry Goldwater, Udall said, "you don't have to be straight to shoot straight." How true. Join me now and show Senator Udall and the other defenders of equality in the House and Senate--as well as President Obama--that we stand beside them.
