A Letter to a Senator

I wrote my Florida Senators regarding Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.   I am against repealing it.  I feel it is a fair compromise.  I don’t feel that open displays of immoral and unnatural behavior should be allowed.  The Constitution doesn’t offer anyone the right to serve, and it doesn’t afford military members total freedoms of speech and expression.  Also, gay personnel knew the rule when they VOLUNTEERED and they signed a contract.

Here is my letter:

Sir;

I sincerely appreciate and respect your speedy reply to me
on this issue.

I am disappointed that you support the
repeal.  I do not seeing this going well for the morale, unit
cohesion, or even the overall effectiveness of an all volunteer
force.  Perhaps a study of demographics in where most of your
volunteers come from is in order:  Southern, rural, Christian valued
members.  

Are you willing to support a draft to fill the
ranks when the lack of volunteers causes a shortage in ranks?

Also, I would also like to respectfully point out that this isn't a
typical civil rights matter such as race or gender.  This is a matter
of people making decisions on how to act or behave.  Can a certain
percentage of homosexual people do the job?  Absolutely.  No
doubt or question in my mind.

Do we want pedophiles in our
ranks?  How about murderers and rapists?  We all hear the outcry
and demand for punishment/discharge when a member of the military is found
guilty of these offenses.  They made decisions.

Military
service cannot ever be considered a right for anybody.  The Air Force
is kicking able bodied people out of the service because of their waist
size.  We have members that lose their limbs fighting to stay in but
can't.  

This is not a typical job.  We don't play
9-5 and go home every night of the year.  You have people that sleep
in crammed quarters, take showers in open bays, and get way too close for
the comfort of most Americans.  Remember, less than 1% of Americans
serve.  But it's most of those Americans that haven't that are
supporting this.

Fair?  Not likely.

For
instance sir, homosexual men find arousal by looking at the male
body.  I, as a heterosexual man, find arousal looking at the female
body.  So are we going to give homosexuals a "perk" by
saying it's ok for them to go into the showers and see what they
WANT...but I can't?

Fair?  Not likely.

Are you
willing to make the military co-ed?  Are you comfortable with men AND
women sharing quarters and showers?  I doubt many Americans are.

We want to use the excuse "Well they have done it in other
countries".  True.  However look at those other
countries.  They aren't as sexually repressed or restricted as we
are.  Do they have a UCMJ that makes adultery and sodomy (oral and
anal sex) offenses punishable by discharge?

And then you have
to look at marriage.  Has the Federal Government recognized unions
for homosexual couples?  Right now the DoD pays to move a member's
family to their new duty location.  Homosexuals do not currently have
that right, as most States don't recognize the Unions.  Are you
prepared to trample on State rights to force a recognitions so a
homosexual couple is treated "equally" with the benefits that
married couples get?

Military service is not guaranteed under
the Constitution for all people.  Stating that a policy is
unconstitutional for the military is also invalid, as a lot of my rights
to speech and expression are prohibited because of military image and
national security.  For example, if I were racist (and I truly
believe I am not), I cannot join and actively participate in the KKK or
other hate groups, nor can I distribute any propaganda supporting said
groups.  So long as the average American isn't being violent, they
are allowed to do so.  A military member knows and understands they
can not.  We also agreed to those prohibitions when we signed the
contract, just as homosexuals knew of DADT when they signed a contract.

Why is our country so against forcing people to uphold their end
of a legal contract?  It was no big secret what was required under
DADT.  I felt it a fair compromise.  I personally don't feel
anyone that participates in immoral or unnatural behavior should be fit
for volunteer service.   The image of the men and women that
protect our country needs to be pristine.  People doing indecent acts
with animals and children don't uphold that image, and honestly sir,
neither do people that engage in these acts with members of the same
gender.

Please consider this.
