LETTER: Ramming Through a Social Experiment

By Beacon Staff

Congress’s repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is just the latest attempt to undermine another institution in our society. Our military is responsible for the defense of our republic, and quite frankly, all of Western civilization and liberty in the world. As such, our military should not be the subject of some absurd social experiment. A recent poll of the combat troops showed they are opposed to this. Along with DADT, this lame duck congress attempted to ram through more pork, treaties, land grabs and amnesty just before the Christmas break, all of which are opposed by most Americans as evidenced by the November election. President Obama called the lame duck session, progress. “Progress” to most liberals is the growth of Government, while returning any measure of liberty to the people is “regressive.”
