    Let the gays get married,

    let the rednecks have guns, let the atheists be atheists and the Christians be Christians. This is America, America is about freedom. Freedom to live how you please and be happy about your life, so smoke a bowl, shoot your guns, cuss a lot, praise Jesus, and wish those two...

    Honestly, I would rather live next to a whole

    Yeah yeah yeah America is great.

    I hate it when people from other countries
