Happy 4th of July, America?



















This is the result of electing a bigoted, uneducated, malignant narcissist to the presidency:


Gallup:

Poll: Americans’ Pride In Country Declining Under Trump

Only 47% of Americans say they're proud of their country, down from 51% in 2017.


"For the first time ever, less than half of U.S. adults say they’re 'extremely proud' to be Americans."

"This marks the first time the number has dropped below 50 percent since Gallup started asking people how proud they are to be Americans. 

 The figure reached a peak of 70 percent in 2003, in the aftermath of 9/11. Since then, it has remained steady at 57 to 58 percent — until Trump took office."





Trump administration to refugees:



"GET OUT! AND STAY OUT!"

So, a sort of referendum so to speak on tRump's vision and leadership wouldn't you say?

Hopefully Americans get energized and start the MAPA movement that carries through into 2020 and beyond.

Make America PROUD Again

And, a political slogan for 2020...

Drop tRump Like a Rock .

Yeah. I'm not feeling the fun I felt in years past this time. Maybe by next 4th the Orange Turd will be gone. Try to have a happy 4th even if the country is going to the dogs.

I’m proud to be an American, and embarrassed and ashamed of our government, and believe we have a president who does not have the best interests of the country foremost in his mind, doesn’t support or even understand the constitution, and is interested only in his own enrichment.

Trump is what’s wrong with the United States of America!

Here's another instance of how President Porn Star Shagger has made America great again.

I'm with you Jerry, I'm pro-America; anti-Trump. IMO, one cannot be for America and for Trump.

Been embarrassed with our government for decades. The last president that put the American people first and country close behind was Eisenhower, since then it is party and personal interest first voters are there because they have to lie to someone.
We do have the best politicians money can buy and I guess the positive part is they are all equal opportunity crooks.
What other job can you start with little money and four years later you are a multimillionaire with full salary and healthcare for life.

Never forget that "We the People" elected them and gave them the power to set themselves up nicely for life. Don't blame them for taking advantage of the power we gave them. We need term limits for Congresscritters. We limited presidential terms and now we need to do that for Congressional terms. Problem is that it is THEY who would introduce the legislation and it is THEY who would vote on it. Not likely to happen. Also, it takes years and years for a Constitutional amendment to pass.
