Perhaps many Americans are paranoiacs vs Texas due to its' SIZE? Texas (or Tejas) believes as a state they still rule the minds of the rest of us as most recently seen by their elected officials wanting to "overturn the electoral college vote" albeit they are a red state and TRUMP won it. The People have answered with their votes! Someday (I hope) in my lifetime or yours the "electoral college" will be abolished and our President will be elected by a straight "popular vote of the People?" THEN all this 'childish bickering' will not be necessary.

The flag? As has been said many times "a symbol." Those citizens WHO wrap themselves in the flag and wear it in their fashions are not "very patriotic" or in your "eyes TRUE AMERICANS." Some may be but most are hypocrites, but another label passed around (but historical) are 'fascists.' Please learn where fascism evolves from: the middle class.

A phrase I heard in college years ago: "my values are not your values." Unfortunately we are a deeply polarized nation and it will take decades or a renewed civil war to change any of that? Be safe and healthy in 2021. Thank you.

I'm sorry. My above post needed to be directed to "Angel Calzadilla" and NOT AlekZD. Happy 2021.
