    The actual Op-ed penned by Adm. William McRaven (ret):
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/black-lives-matter-navy-seal-031036423.html

    Let's try something new. Read the article before commenting.

    Another one. Trump has lost the middle-ground voter.

    People here will say the guy "is part of the swamp", or a "RINO" or glad he's gone. The messenger isn't the problem. The message is accurate, relevant and timely.

    The fact is Trump is losing voters including middle of the road voters he can ill afford to lose. Look at all the prominent republicans who have spoken out, all the op-eds that have been written. The president won the presidency with a minority of voters. He cannot afford to lose any support to gain re-election, yet he has. Even within the military, former cabinet members, sitting congressmen, prominent supporters and members of the republican party.

    Draining the Swamp. Dollar for Dollar Washington DC is the most corrupt jurisdiction on the Planet and has been so for Fifty years. The Swamp is fighting back. America lives or dies with the Jan 20 2021 innauguration. Ninety-nine percent of America's 'civil servants' are criminals.

    We will know in 2 weeks. Doubt anything at this point could change what will happen so let it play out.

    Don't discount the fact that he's gained a lot of voters - people who voted for Hillary last time or people that didn't vote at all.

    I truly don't think he has. He has lost the middle ground, he has lost the left of center conservative.

    We will know for sure in just a short bit though.

    Yes, we will.

    I honestly don’t know which way it’s going to go, what with all the liberal voter fraud and all.

    But I do know this, Trump has been DOING the right things. His messaging and ability to stay on point and not take bait in the face of relentless 91% negative media coverage is the problem.

    His policies are spot on 95% of the time. Any conservative who doesn’t see that is either not a conservative, or is just an idiot.

    For me this election is about potential Supreme Court vacancies, since Breyer is in his 80s. I have no emotional attachment to Trump, but other things come into play.

    That’s what the last election was about for me. It’s turned out awesomely.

    Along the way Trump has demonstrated (so far) his policies are the best of any president of the modern era. Even better than Regan who signed a disastrous immigration deal.

    His style isn’t great, and it hampers his effectiveness, but he’s still crushing it.

    "While McRaven aligned himself with those conservative ideals, he also said "we need a president for all Americans, not just half of America," adding: "I also believe that black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success".

    I don't care what someone who supports an openly Marxist group (BLM) thinks.

    Like the religious fanatic, the Leftist has predilection to attempt to control the free speech and thoughts of everyone else.

    McRaven is a leftist ****tard.

    Anybody who could look at our cities today and express support for black lives matter is not a conservative and not a patriot. He doesn’t care about people whose lives are being ruined (or ended) only propaganda.

    Yeah, well.... in my little secluded corner of the universe.... 90% of the people in the shop I work are voting Trump. Last election was about 30% Trump. Union shop.
    I think the MSM is setting us up for massive voter fraud cover-up.
