Political Games With Gay Lives

One wonders just how many times the gay communuty has to be disappointed by Obama? The Democratic POTUS was by ALL accounts missing in action on yesterday's DADT repeal debacle. It's time for gays and lesbians to grasp the fact that equality will only come when we forge a movement independent of both Democrats and Republicans, and when we are willing to do the hard work of serious demonstrations and non violent civil disobedience. Look at the civil rights struggle of the 50s and 60s. Dr. King forced the government to take action with marches, sit-ins and demonstrations. That's what we've got to do. Obama has proven that he won't help us, and after the mid terms Congress will be MORE hostile, not less. The clock is ticking. When will the gay community withold support an our votes from Obama and company, and start the hard work that we have to do?
