Why I don't vote Republican

Last modified: 9/23/2010 12:00:00 AM
America is the world standard for equality and opportunity. Our actions are watched by all as examples of what is right, just and guaranteed by our dynamic Constitution. It is these principles that American soldiers have fought for and died to protect - for centuries. It is within this context that the actions of all 41 Republican senators on Sept. 21 are distinctly un-American.

The GOP unanimously voted to block debate on a bill to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' which denies gay and lesbian American citizens the opportunity to serve their country openly, as they are able to do in many other industrialized nations with honor, and without incident. What message do the actions of these Republican senators, including Judd Gregg, send to the rest of the world?

I have not and will not vote Republican, precisely because the GOP seems to think denying equal rights to minorities is acceptable.
