I think Trump has a good point.


If you hate the Freedom & Liberty outlined in the US Constitution, why are you still here?
Openly act as an enemy of America and expect to be taken seriously.
The 4 horsewomen of the democrat apocalypse are on the wrong side of history, just like every democrat communist authoritarian act. Slavery, Jim Crow, KKK, Abortion, Internment, Segregation. Super Predator.

No body hates Freedom or Liberty.

Many patriotic people question parts of the Constitution, because of course they do. It was written over 200 years ago in a TOTALLY different world than the one we live in now.

Thomas Jefferson knew things were going to change which is why he wanted to put an expiration date on the thing.

Opposing the way things are done and trying to make it better is not showing disdain for America. If it were, why weren't all of the Trump supporters telling him to get the **** out when he was running for President saying "America is failing" and "lets make America great again"?

People who see something that they believe is wrong with this country and try to change it are Patriots, people who sit around saying "everything's great, no need to change anything because we're perfect, we're #1" are proud puppets.


You may disagree with them, much as I disagreed with Trump. But it's completely foolish to suggest they should leave a country that they obviously love and care about just because they don't see eye to eye with you.

That's what the Constitutional Amendment process is for. Don't like the US Constitution as is? Work to get a Constitutional Amendment ratified. It's really that simple.

As the great Mark Twain said, "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it."

Following someone blindly (be s/he a Democrat, Republican, Green, Libertarian, Independent, Socialist or whatever else) is not supporting your country. It is supporting that one person.

No one person has all the answers.

Also, supporting the Constitution means supporting the whole thing, including freedom of speech and the separation of power between the executive, legislative and judicial branches.

Many if not most people who speak out do so because they love the country and want to make it better, not because they hate it. Certainly those who put real effort into their speech such as going to DC and marching or organizing are doing so for those reasons.

Amending the Constitution is not simple.

There are 27 Constitutional Amendments. Sufficient proof that if a proposed Amendment is important enough and has enough support, it will pass and the Constitution will be amended.

Shame on you, OP! (sarcasm) Didn't you know that using the word "America" in now frowned on by the PC police?
