Oh yes, everyone has options. They can come and go and they all grovel at the feet of El Presidente.
They all know what the other is doing. They are picking this nation apart in order to remake it in their own corrupt neocon fantasy.
And the spear at which they are doing this is the US Military, which ironically, does not serve at the pleasure of the President, they are forced into it. Then once no longer able to carry out their orders due to injury, they are shipped back to Walter Reed where they are abused in a very hideous way.
But the ones that remain, they are forced to serve AGAINST the interests of the Constitution and the We The People.
And again, Rove is in the center of it all.
