8. Right now, I do think you're right.

 

But I also do believe that he's working towards making it possible. He's got all of the top cards changed to his deck, and those who he's made enemies of will be pushed towards retirement's to make room for those who are more.. cooperative.

Consider his attacks on gays, and in particular transgenders in the military. It's not passing at this time.. BUT.. just because he's put it out there, how many of our young GLBT who might have signed up for service will now at the least second guess it? How many of our young minorities who watch how Myeshia Johnson was treated, and decide the military isn't the place for them? Conversely, how many conservative youth are watching this and thinking.. now's the time to join.

Same questions, but considering those who are already in, but coming up on reenlistment time in the next few years.

Change the people.. change the culture.. and it can happen.
