Lady Gaga on" Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

Don't Ask, Don't Tell is finally coming up for a vote in the Senate on Tuesday (the House voted to repeal it in May) and I agree with Lady Gaga that it's time for remove this law from our books and allow all people to serve in the Armed Forces without prejudice based on gender, race, religion OR sexuality. Making the decision to serve and protect our country is one of complete selflessness and no one should be turned away because of some outdated stereotypes and fear mongering.

Please join Lady Gaga and me by calling your Senator and urging him or her to vote with Senator Harry Reid to repeal this unconstitutional law and oppose Senator John McCain's filibuster.You can also call Senator McCain directly at 202-224-2235 and let him know that America supports the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and he needs to stop standing in the way of equal opportunity and let this measure come to the floor for a vote rather than filibustering it. It's time everyone be able to serve our country. Click here for more information on the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network that Lady Gaga talks about in her video.
