    Minimal and isolated incidents of risk to the current war efforts.

    Not only does Cindy differ with McCain, but his daughter as well.

    'Meghan McCain Talks Dad, DADT' - The Advocate - 09/18/10

    'An outspoken supporter of gay rights, Meghan McCain has taken a fair amount of heat in recent weeks for her father's opposition to repealing "don't ask, don't tell."

    Along with majority of America:

    'New Poll Shows Support for Repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell - By DALIA SUSSMAN - NY Times - 02/11/10

    Shall we go over the numbers?

    14,000 discharged. Service Members Legal Defense Fund.

    $1.3 Billion spent on DADT. Congressmen Patrick J. Murphy, PA.

    Critical skill members discharged. Like Arab linquist, Dan Choi.

    And last, cohabitation of gay & straight service members, albiet in ignorance...

    for the last 17 years.

    his daughter has been very vocal for removing the ban too.

    Is it a generational idea that needs to die with that same generation?

    Is it time to allow those who are in the military to live without fear of being discovered?

    I say yes. It is time for DADT to die.
