To appease radical homosexual groups, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid will schedule a vote next Tuesday, which will allow full and open inclusion of homosexuals in our military. Reid’s parliamentary maneuver would cut-off any debate on the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act and this crucial national security issue. Senator John McCain has filed an objection to Reid’s maneuver, but needs 41 “NO” votes to sustain his objections. Reid’s action is nothing but a blatant political move to shore up his faltering political campaign and implement a promise President Obama made to homosexuals to repeal the 1993 law referred to as Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT).
Senator Reid’s action betrays all the men and women defending our nation; over 1160 retired military generals and admirals, as well as the current four service chiefs oppose it. We must not allow partisan politics to control our national defense.
YOUR VOICE MUST BE HEARD
The majority of Americans do not support the repeal of DADT.
We cannot allow Congress to force another controversial issue on the American people.
YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING IMMEDIATELY:
1. Call, Fax, or E-mail your Senators and ask them to vote “No” on Cloture on the Defense Authorization Bill.
3. Call Senator John McCain at 202-224-2235 and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at 202-224-3135. Encourage them to continue the fight to defeat this betrayal of our military.
God Bless America,
