He might be a great one. If AH-NOLD can get in, George Clooney has more intelligence on his side and it does NOT hurt that he is a STUD MUFFIN to look at, too! Hey, George, run for office in New York! Take Bloomberg's place!!!!

I was definately being facetious, however I never voted for Hillary (or celery, whatever her name is), or Schumer. If you ask people if they DID vote for them of course everyone tells you NO. So....he must have gotton into office like Bush. And we all know how he got there. Dont we, Florida?

If you are just a "steeenkin' green card," you have no right to vote, period. You can spout your venom, you can bash our country, you can deny our way of life, but you can't vote, now can you? Go home. It must be better there than here - so why are you here?

Cause this is where my children are.
I did not mean it in a really sarcastic way either steeeenkin card..I just gave it a long pronunciation.
Well maybe because I know I can not vote(the sarcasm snuck in), but what good is it?
We shall find out tho, how the Government is listening to its citizens.
I am Libra what can I say...
Shwip Shwap.
One day I think sure become American the other nah.
I know a lot of Americans that do not feel as much pride than others either, to me it's a country more than a state of mind.

Also if I wanted to get into all the technicalities of it all, who founded this country?
Who knows my great, great, great, great, great Uncle was on of the people who helped with Constitution?
And, it was not built on Capitalism, it was built on freedom.

Actually, being a descendent of people who came over here in 1635, it could be said that my family was instrumental in creating this great country. My family busted their .... to make their way in this country - and we are still busting it. We are still striving for that "American" dream. Since 400 years of my ancestors have worked and fought in many wars to preserve our way of life, I think I am entitled to speak out.

Like I said, go home if it is so awful for you to live here. Or, better yet, become a citizen and have an actual say in how our government is run.

Some Germans accompanied Captain John Smith in 1608 to the New World, so maybe one of them is my anchestor.
