Inquiring minds are reading a new author, Darin Selnick, who used to work for the Department of Veterans Affairs. For full disclosure, Darin is an old friend. We have gone through many wars. Some political, some actually even charitable. He is an honorable, intelligent person with good writing skills and he just posted a new article on TheDailyCaller.com entitled “The repeal of DADT is a wake-up call for social conservatives“:
Why do Democrats want to repeal DADT, considering that it has been in effect since 1993 and has worked well? This is not about what is good for the country or the military; it is about jamming the Democrats’ left-wing, radical social agenda down the throats of the American people. This is a wake-up call for social conservatives that we are in a culture war that the left will not give up on despite suffering historic losses in the November midterms.
Although social conservatives lost the battle on DADT, the culture war and the fight on this have just begun. The repeal of DADT is mobilizing a large group of previously inactive social conservatives, just as the health care fight, TARP, the stimulus and other fiscal issues mobilized fiscal conservatives. Going forward, DADT will be the rallying cry for social conservatives, and the issue will not fade away. Social conservatives know that the military is the last line of defense in the culture war and if it falls, so does the rest of the country.
Surviving California invites you to read the rest of Mr. Selnick’s article. He is a very intelligent, well-balanced writer who has good common sense approaches. Watch for future articles. They are sure to be very informative.
