Great post, and 100% correct. The government should stay out of our private lives, and our private choices.
Gary Johnson should be President. Sadly, I don't think it will happen.
Homosexuals ought to keep their private lives to themselves and as long as no one asks no one should tell. I'm glad I'm not in the military any longer because I wouldn't know how to enforce something that has been dropped on me without any guidance and consideration of its impact on servicemembers.
So should heterosexuals. However, being gay should not be grounds for dismissal. Governor Johnson is correct.
Let the military decide for themselves.
Whatever happened to the president being commander in chief? What gives some unelected judge the power to dictate personnel policies in the military? I thought narco-libertarians held up the Constitution. Now I see they'll happily shred it to get the results they want.
The President is only commander-in-chief when there's a declaration of war, and there hasn't been one of those since WW2. The Constitution also forbids against a standing army. So, technically, if we were following the Constitution, none of this would even be an issue.
So you're OK with unelected judges making policy for the military. Got it.
Wrong. He is still the CiC then, just like the Army is still the Army. We do not disband the military when we are not at war, so the president is still in charge of it. I would ask you what part of the Constitution forbids a standing army, but I already know you do not know what you are talking about, so I won't bother.
