I'm sure all have heard or read about General Pace's comments about gays and lesbians in the armed forces for the United States. Now, as with all of our stupid political issues in this country, Presidential candidates have begun to take sides and support either the General's view or the opposite view. In the second to last paragraph, Mitt Romney said "He can believe what he wants to, that's the great thing about America -- believe in what you want. But in a governmental setting, the right way to go is to show more of an outpouring of tolerance." Why doesn't every other politician understand that statement? THis country was built on the fundamental rights of FREEDOM. A person can believe whatever they want to believe, but when that belief starts to infringe upon someone else's rights there is an issue. When will political squabbling end. This is a stupid issue for people to take sides....SEPERATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. I understand that people have their morals and fundamental ideals in life rooted from religion. I am no different, but why do people need to express dislike and hatred. It sounds stupid, but maybe we have to go back to preschool again and say that if you don't have something nice to say about people don't say it at all. This is stupid political issue. People are dying around the world. Soldiers are being killed, along with many innocent people in Iraq. And all this time, people are starving and people are killing each other in our OWN COUNTRY. Hey, here's a thought, instead of investing over $100 Billion in this defense spending, lets try and make the United States a better place to live before we go out and force other people to live the way "we do". We have enough of our own problems in teh United States that we should fix up before we get caught up in other countries. When will political discourse and action be taken to better the United States instead of hypocrisy and destruction abroad? When will someone step in and handle the important issues in this country instead of making hateful comments about someone's sexual preference?
