U.S. Generals are raising the alarm.

'Our military has leaned strongly Republican. By law, active military are constrained from political action. Most retired officers are highly politically aware but strive to be non-partisan, and are often not aligned with either party.
The fact that so many top-ranked former Generals and Admirals have gone on record to speak out against Donald Trump underscores the gravity of the threat he represents to our democracy and, ultimately, what it means to be American. Below are warnings from a number of these retired, highly respected military commanders.'>>>

3. Let's be clear, their concern isn't political in nature, they have nothing to be worried about

Donald Trump poses an existential threat to the republic; this isn't simply a partisan issue as the media attempts to frame it. Yes, Trump is the manifestation of decades of Republican malfeasance, but at this point, it's way more than just Democrats that see Trump as the villain in this saga.

7. Yeah, what good did Brennan et al do speaking out?

Congressional Republicans also need to speak out because at this point, if they donít say anything, itís because they are complicit. History will judge them harshly.

8. So glad to see continued blowback by the military against trump.

trump has treated the military like dog shit, over and over. In this upcoming election, I want the military on our side---not defending trump's right to an unearned second term.
