    I Dont Care What Others Say...

    I truly wish all the nay-sayers who bash America would leave. Why do we need toxicity here? We should be building each other up and trying to make America better, not tear it down by saying hateful things. If you don't want to be an American, please emigrate. In my honest...

    Yes, I Am Still Proud To Be An American
