    I don't have a flag shoved up me,

    but I am certainly proud to be an American. this is who I am and I love my country. Do people take it too far sometimes? Yes. But then there are people who don't care enough.

    You can make the list of U.

    When one thinks about Donald trump they usually

    focus on the negative things he has to say and yes ofc they aren't the most accepted thing to say in this century but I admire how honest he is. Not many politicians have that these days.

    everyone I know is talking about moving to

    Canada if trump becomes president. I used to be one of them, but now I'd rather not burden the Canadians with our problems. you all can move to Canada, but I'm going to stay and fight the war, whether it's a civil war, a revolutionary war, or if we get invaded.

    A banality among conservatives is the victim

    complex, which seems to make itself most evident in the common line of defense for Trump, by his supporters - He says what he wants and he doesn't care what people think. Well sweetheart, if thats your atitiude how much room have you left open for conversation?

    The one thing we should remember about

    Presidential "debates" is that they aren't actually debates; more like joint press conferences since there's rarely any strike and parry. It's run through a moderator, so in the end it's just people restating their opinion while waiting for the next good sir to give theirs, then...
