I am a retired military officer, with over 26 years of service. A mustange, I rose through the ranks and chose to retire before i entered field grade ranks because I had seen with my own eyes, that to advance higher, especially to General Ranks, one has to kiss up and kick down. I've seen generals effeminate colonels who in turn regained their testosterone by doing the same to majors.
This explains the great number of Generals that are willing to submit to Trump, they are sycophants professionally reared in the kiss up kick down environment.

What happens if tRump has Mueller fired?
Lets TELL the TRUTH , Donald Trump won the presidency under a cloud of suspicion of voter purges, electronic manipulation, gerrymandering the practice manipulating district boundaries, wild promises that will be NEVER kept and with the BILLIONAIRES , the Sheldon Adelson's, the Koch Brothers, the Rupert Murdoch's , the Steve Wynns, the Donald Trump's AND the help of BILLIONAIRE Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. WITHOUT THEM there would be NO American conservative Party.
America is in danger of becoming a one party nation. The two parties do have far too many similarities in some ways, but that's not the problem. Even with the often too far rightward 3rd way Dems there are differences. Generally they are pro-Choice, generally they cut less social programs, generally they believe in a legal balance between gun rights and responsibility.
