    From the article: McRaven described himself as a "pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative" but said the US was no longer a country that set an example of democracy.

    Biden: “Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are designed for no purpose other than to kill quickly and as brutally as possible. No one needs them,” he said.

    When I hear from people like that, I just tune out as they lost all credibility. I don't care who he votes or voted for, if he's for the removal of the 2nd Amendment (don't think the first steps will be the last) and for BLM, then he's a liberal through and through.

    Admiral McRaven is a political creature. One does not get additional stars during an administration hostile to the military without some political skills. He was obviously a gifted soldier as BUDS, Seal6, eventually Dev Group and JSOC isn’t fall off a log simple.

    When it comes to matters military I think he may well have some good insights to offer.

    Domestic politics. I’ll shy away from taking him seriously. He showed some serious issues when he defended Brennan, a known communist **** as being a man of integrity. He shows a complete lack of understanding of the meaning behind the 2A with comments supporting limits on Assault Rifles and such weapons if war. Of all folks he should know the difference between an assault rifle and a semi-auto rifle. He supports certain criminals’ ability to benefit from criminal acts makes me wonder if he understands the concept of why we have laws. Wonder if he would support gun owners having a path to AR ownership after bans are passed. Maybe if you can long term break the law you get forgiven.

    If he thinks Joe Biden is better for America, then he and I have very different visions of what America is and should be.

    If the majority of Americans believe Joe Biden is our future, well they’ll get exactly what they deserve. And no, I won’t give a **** about anyone caught up in the shut storm they voted for.

    Yes...I read the article...No I did not read the op ed...I salute this man's service to our nation, but I am diametrically opposed to the positions he takes in his commentary. I continue to maintain that DJT was elected for a "specific" reason; the middle, middle-right and right, were sick and tired of being constantly and systematically lied to by the self-serving pols on both sides of the aisle. THAT is why DJT was elected...to be different, and to give those of us who still love/respect/support our Const and our country, Hope...Hope that our great institutions could be preserved; freedom of speech. religion and self defense chief among them. After the election, if nothing else, DJT has exposed what many of us had secretly feared...that the Fed Govt is and has been actively working Against law abiding Americans...that the majority of our elected pols are nothing but a venal, self-serving cabal of criminals...that the "4th Estate" once a noble and esteemed part of the fabric of America, has been reduced to a scandal chasing, fact ignoring, hatred filled collection of whining, leftist collaborators, working tirelessly to undermine this country.
    And that our institutions of higher learning, once the hallmark of our great society, have been infiltrated by Socialists/Communists who are engaged daily in the most pernicious of sins; the indoctrination of our most treasured assets; our children.

    No, I do Not agree with anything contained within the OP...But he has every right to his opinions...including the absolute Right to be Wrong.

    Haven't waded through this. But many high ranking military officers are Democrats. Sort of scary.

    You do realize Trump is leading in actual state polling in Ohio and Florida, right?

    Trafalgar, the most accurate pollster in 2016 and 2018 is calling 2020 for Trump.

    Jonesee and other Never Trumpers can hate on the man all they want but no other President in my lifetime has done more for Americans than he has done for himself.

    Not a single one besides Trump.

    Trump isn't perfect, sure he has his faults, but no other President has done more to try and improve the lives of Americans more than Donald Trump.

    Joe Biden represents 47 years of failed government and Kamala Harris represents the values that have destroyed Cuba and Venezuela.

    If that's who a man wants to endorse or vote for that, then he's no one I want to listen to.

    It's kind of like a gay man who goes both ways. They like men AND boys.

    I don't know if you remember but Obama fired every general that would not FULLY support him. By fully I mean be used against United States population as needed.

    So, the retired Admiral describes himself as a "pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative," yet he voted for the pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment, big government, foreign-relations-ignorant, national-anthem-kneeling-supporting candidate.

    He blames Trump for "tearing down institutions," but votes for the guy who supports the groups that are actually tearing down our institutions.

    He says be believes that "black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success, that education is the great equalizer, that climate change is real and that the First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy," yet he voted for the party who champions policies that keep black people in poverty, replace American workers with cheap undocumented laborers, stifle diversity of thought and exclude those who disagree, push anti-American ideology in public schools, seek to bankrupt the country with the Green New Deal, and silence dissenting speech that counters their ideology.

    This guy is either brainwashed by the cult of personality, or part of the swamp himself. If he looked beyond the surface and MSM headlines he'd realize that President Trump's positions align more closely with his own beliefs. Sadly there are too many voters these days who can't see the truth dancing right in front of their own eyes. I'd expect better sense from an obviously patriotic and highly intelligent retired USN Admiral, but this could be more about self-interest than the best interest of the country.

    So the Admiral is willing to toss America as we know it to the side because he didn't like Trump's style?
    So many pick up on the unimportant things and totally miss the bigger picture of what is at stake.
