Time to quit the U.S. military

I’m not sure there is any stopping the U.S. Senate from approving the repeal of the Congress’ ban on open homosexuality in the U.S. military – euphemistically called the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Worthless Republican senators like Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Susan Collins of Maine have already abandoned ship. Democrat Jim Webb of Virginia has switched his position.

It seems to be up to John McCain and Lindsey Graham to block this vote in the lame-duck session – and those are not two guys I have learned to depend upon in an important fight.

So what’s next if the U.S. military opens up its ranks to flaming homosexuals, transsexuals, transvestites, lesbians and other sexual deviants du jour?

According to the Pentagon’s survey on the impact of the move, 265,000 military service people would leave earlier than planned as a result of just this move. That represents 12.6 percent of all personnel, and, I think, that’s low-balling it.

Military analyst Bob Maginnis, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, said the real number could exceed half a million.

“Twelve-point-six percent is just the people who said they would leave,” Maginnis told WND. “If you add in the number who said they ‘might’ leave, you get 23.7 percent. That would be 528,000, when you count both active duty and reserves.”

What is at the heart of evil in our world, and how do we lessen its power in our own lives? Check out David Kupelian’s newest book, “How Evil Works: Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming America”

As much as I respect and admire the U.S. military as an institution, I would find myself actively encouraging men and women to leave – in droves.

If the U.S. military is going to be transformed into just another tool of twisted social engineering, rather than a force designed to defend America’s national security interests, dedicated, brave and upstanding young men and women should no longer participate of their own free will. It’s just that simple. Let the politicians cobble together a military of social deviants if they think they can.

After all, this is simply a plan being orchestrated by a regime that loathes the military and seeks to destroy it. Maybe it’s time for America to recognize what that will mean to the future of the country.

It’s been a long time since America used its military wisely anyway.

The military should be used to destroy America’s enemies. Period. End of story. That’s not what the politicians did in Iraq. That’s not what we’re doing in Afghanistan. That’s not what we did in Vietnam. That’s not what we did in Korea. The results from those military campaigns of planned stalemate are in for all to see.

I don’t trust today’s Washington politicians with the lives of American soldiers. So, if they are hell-bent on creating a gay Army, they’ll have to live with the result.

Let the social experiment fall flat on its face. Perhaps then we can have a rational debate in Washington about the true purpose of the armed services. Perhaps then Americans will awaken to the necessity of sending more responsible politicians to Washington, as they did in the last election. Perhaps then those responsible for this vote will pay a big price in the next election. And perhaps then we can rebuild a U.S. military with the proper set of priorities.

This move by the politicians, by the way, is not even about what’s best for the U.S. military. That was clear from the hearings in Washington in which no one could articulate a single advantage to the sissification of the U.S. military. It’s about promoting a political agenda of softening up America’s morals and preparing for the next shoe to drop.

The next shoe, in case you don’t get it by now, is transforming marriage from an institution between a man and a woman to one of anything goes.

I hope the best and brightest in the U.S. military recognize the stakes and make the decision to rejoin the civilian ranks at home where the ultimate fight for liberty, morality and self-government is about to take place.
