Proud to be American. Celebrate the 4th, wave the Stars and Stripes with pride. United States of America, the best Country on earth.

Perhaps time for some Teddy Roosevelt, that brilliant hybrid of (true) progressivism and republicanism:

"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else."

"The good citizen will demand liberty for himself, and as a matter of pride he will see to it that others receive the liberty which he thus claims as his own. Probably the best test of true love of liberty in any country is the way in which minorities are treated in that country. Not only should there be complete liberty in matters of religion and opinion, but complete liberty for each man to lead his life as he desires, provided only that in so doing he does not wrong his neighbor."

"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

"Our government, National and State, must be freed from the sinister influence or control of special interests. Exactly as the special interests of cotton and slavery threatened our political integrity before the Civil War, so now the great special business interests too often control and corrupt the men and methods of government for their own profit. We must drive the special interests out of politics."

"Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance."

Biden is a corrupt demented groper and Epstein did not kill his self.

FAIL! Sorry, Teddy.

By the way, how did that false flag gig with USS Maine in Havana Harbor go for you?

I bought and put up a flag.

And I used my chalk to write "I like America" at a sidewalk crossing.

That's quite a radical statement these days.

Took the kids hiking and we all wore Stars and Stripes. Came across quite a few other people wearing red white and blue greeting each other “happy 4th!”

My kids say the pledge in the morning at school and love wearing Stars and Stripes, red white and blue. They call it wearing the “USA flag”. My sons favorite song is Born in the USA and when I put it on he sings and follows Bruce Springsteen playing air guitar and throwing his fist in the air. Trying my best to raise my kids to love and respect our great Country.

You do realize that pink houses and born in the USA are both protest songs, don’t you?

I like this one better

Yeah that’s what I understand as well. I was a kid when those songs were released and they bring back good memories of the past. Later in life I listened to the lyrics more carefully. Still great songs and a symbols of American culture

I hung up a flag.
My visitor from Mexico has not been here during the fourth of July.
I said " In New England, flags were common. Here I bet my flag is the only one."
She couldn't understand.
"Santa Cruz is full of depressed, crazy, and foreign people who don't care about having pride."
A common aspect of depressed people is low self esteem or lack of pride. Santa Cruz has no pride.
