America has a lot of problems, but they are OUR problems.. <s> Name me country that doesn't. At least in our country, we can still freely talk about our problems.

Oh please Sukie, you know damn well that your post was indeed meant to be an INSULT towards America/USA.... NOT a "wry" attempt at humor that was not meant to be taken as a "negative" about America/USA, and you know it.

lol...Justin Trudeau as your country's "progressive" Prime Minister ELITIST, sadly has the same UNCOMMON common sense and "moral compass" as those in my country who KEEP UP WITH THE KARDASIANS.

Really Piper?? Then WHY is our country THE COUNTRY that people all around the world risk their lives, leave their homeland and leave their families behind to come to the USA for a better life for themselves IF "many people around the world" feel the way Sukie does about America????
IF the USA were this supposed anti-this or anti-that type of country that ONLY liberals portray our great country to be...WHY then do we have so many ILLEGAL immigrants in our country who couldn't wait in line to come to our country LEGALLY if we're such an awful oppressive country to live in!!????? ugh, smh.

Yeah, really. I know there are many people in the world who have contempt for most all things American. I would know that, even I hadn't met several of them.

We all know that multitudes of people have, and still wish to immigrate to this country. That has nothing to do with my response to this post, and the fact many people do indeed hate us. As far as our country being "such an awful oppressive country to live in!!?????".....I suggest you take that up with someone who has expressed that sentiment.

Your comment to Sukie's post being "For many people around the world, that is likely true".... implies that you agree with her sentiment about our great country.

Piper, we as DEPLORABLE Americans all know that North Korea, Iran, ISIS, radicalized Muslims, the "progressives" on the left in our country and the RINOs/never Trumpers on the right in our country ALL feel that same MENTALity towards our great country...thus why you globalists/socialist minded people ALL despise President Trump for putting WE THE PEOPLE/AMERICAS best interest FIRST, instead of being just another puppet President ala Bush 41/43, Clinton and Obama.

LOL!!! Oh man that's rich coming from YOUR mindset where you and your ilk still IGNORANTLY believe/think that Hillary Clinton LOST to Trump BECAUSE of women like myself ONLY voting for Trump BECAUSE of our husbands, male bosses TELLING US to VOTE for Trump, smh.

My non-partisan husband being a UNION member of his construction trade for 20 years now, being TOLD 20 years ago by his LIBERAL MASTERS that he had to vote Democrat and had to hold signs on election day in support of a Democrat candidate OR be FINED if he didn't, was a huge WAKE UP call for my husband BEING TOLD how he should vote...with ME telling him that they had no right to tell you how you should vote or forcing you to hold signs on election or forcing you to put signs in our yard supporting that Democrat candidate!!!!...where only because of my husband's talent as a Master Carpenter, his hard work ethic and him listening to me of not taking shit of being TOLD how he should vote, he's always been spared of the fines for him not participating as a UNION member being forced to hold up signs on election day or forced to put sings on their lawn on election day for Democrats

Yet you ignoramus women on the left ASSume that it's our husbands who tell us conservative women how to vote, when in fact it was ME who eventually convinced my politically ambivalent husband to vote for Trump!!!!

Oh please, you know damn well that you SUPPOSED "tolerant of all" feminists" KNOW that you all PRIOR TO TRUMP, were the FIRST to insult women and their intelligence with YOUR constant mocking of Sarah Palin looks and her intelligence...yet then you all became "offended" when Trump during the primaries/debates with Hillary gave it right back to you ALL in the SAME manner as you all fight.

IF those of you on the left fought fairly by providing FACTS as well as having decorum...those of us women with differing opinions that differ than yours, would RESPECT your opinions...nope instead those of you supposed "tolerant" feminists on the left continue to hate on WOMEN like myself JUST because we as strong minded women have our own differing beliefs/opinions that differ from YOURS.
