Only 52 percent of U.S. adults say they are “extremely proud” to be Americans in the latest Gallup poll, representing a new low in the question’s 16-year trend.

As Americans prepare to celebrate Independence Day, the Gallup analysis said that the declining patriotism is “likely related to broader dissatisfaction with the way things are going in the U.S.”

“The vast majority of U.S. adults indicate they are at least moderately proud to be Americans, but as they celebrate the Fourth of July this year, fewer say they are extremely proud than at any point in the last 16 years,” said the poll’s analysis.

“Americans’ continued frustration with national conditions — likely tied to their concern about the economy and lack of faith in public institutions — is probably one reason patriotism is at a recent low point,” said the poll released Friday.

    What does anyone expect? 52% are patriots! The rest are ILLEGALS tsking advantage of our resources, students who have been brainwashed and indoctrinated since they were small IN SCHOOLS, AMERICAN HISTORY like the CONSTITUTION, and our founding fathers, no longer being tsught in school! What about the democrat socialists Preaching HATE, to the slaves in the democratic plantations??

  • ADRoberts

    It is not America, itself that I am ashamed of. It is what American had put into power and who control the actions of our nation. THEY have left our values, and have taken us away from morality, ethics, honesty and God. And now we have a verse that qualifies.
    “We have sown the wind and are now reaping the whirlwind.”

  • MoonBeamWatcher

    A VERY leading question!
    I am ashamed of the America that Imon Barack Soeto Barry Soeto Obama has created with his pen and phone . . . . and equally ashamed of my Republican dominated Congress for not slapping this interloper with TREASON and CONTEMPT charges!

  • Patriot47

    Only 52% are what we know as traditional Americans, patriotic to their country. The rest are closet or open socialists.

  • Roger

    I am extremely proud to be an American because America aka the USA is still the greatest country in the world! Sorry to say that the 48% that responded to this poll are idiots!

    • Roger

      Donald Trump is brilliant and the only candidate in either party that ever said America first! America this means only one candidate wants to and will put AMERICA and AMERICANS first and that candidate is DONALD TRUMP!
      Hillary Benghazi Clinton is insane! I have no doubts!

      • Roger

        Hillary Clinton put our entire country and the life of every AMERICAN citizen at risk with her unauthorized illegal email server and I as an AMERICAN taxpayer, demand that she be arrested and prosecuted for her crimes against AMERICA and the AMERICAN people! There is also the question of six billion dollars that went missing from the State Department when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, something that seems has been swept under the rug! Six billion dollars is as much as 1200 AMERICAN worker earning $100,000.00 a year would earn in 50 years, and our government treats it with no more concern than an average AMERICAN would losing a shirt button! Hillary Clinton owes the AMERICAN taxpayers six billion dollars, it disappeared under her watch and she is responsible for finding it or replacing it with interest! I honestly don’t know how this woman that failed at her job and let four AMERICANS die in Benghazi can even show her face in public or run for President or think that she has a snowballs chance in hell of getting elected! THEY DIED AND SHE LIED AND LIED AND LIED AND LIED!

  • barbarakelly

    People— Don’t let these LIB/DEMS destroy what this country gave you. They have been doing they best to brow beat you into submission. Wake up and smell the crap that they have given you and make them pay for it in Nov. Give your self and this country an chance to regain our strength to defeat them. Know this for sure obama our tyrant is a muslim that has been praying 5 times aday. He has been using this lie that he is a Christian when he is far from it. This was a leaked info that got on the net. I do so much reading that I forgot what site I saw it on. But one place you can look up that I wrote down –it is on you tube Lyndon Larouche. Obama is in trouble And the NSA wants to arrest him along with Bush 1 and 2 for torture and something else. Keep the faith people and hold on.!!

  • Abel

    If you want to know what the country is doing and where it is going, follow the money. If you want to know where the country should be going and what it should be doing, follow the Constitution. I’m probably more proud to be an American than Hugo Chavez or many of the other Great American dictators, since they don’t want to be associated with what most people like to call America, but I’m extremely proud to be a legal United States of America citizen and my country. I didn’t vote for BO Plenty the first time nor the second time because I knew he could not be trusted after I did my research and vetting. Most people in the USA don’t care enough to do this, and look what we got. If you think BO Plenty is bad, and Hillary gets in with her organized crime syndicate, you ain’t seen Hell yet, but you will.

  • Chris Rasmussen

    Love America? Hell Yes!! Glad to be American? You bet!!! “Proud” to be American… that’s a bit harder to answer. My last president lied to the country and to the world to launch an unnecessary war, justified torture as reasonable, cut banking safety regulations set up after the Great Depression to prohibit speculative investing by savings banks, belatedly offered meager support for the 2004 tsunami victims – and worse, characterized it as a “public relations” coup. While facing the worst economic crisis since the aforementioned Great Depression, he maintained tax cuts that dramatically deepened our dept. The current president followed up by doubling down on those tax cuts and has continued to allow the offshoring of American jobs, just as Bush and Clinton had done before. Corporate lobbying is still legal, which means they can effectively write policy and continue to permit our jobs to be sold to the lowest overseas bidders, and politicians of both parties allow this to continue.

    On top of all this we have third-rate candidates vying for the presidency, one a lying buffoon who contradicts himself daily, if not hourly, and a pig-ignorant populace that embraces him no matter what. On the other side, a woman out of touch with most Americans whose best talking points she lifted from Bernie Sanders, and whom a large swath of Americans don’t trust.

    So, proud to be an American? I’d dearly love to feel pride in the country I can’t help but love, but I certainly don’t want to fall into the 30’s Germany “my country right or wrong” mentality. I’ll get back to you in 2020 or 2024 when we’ve hopefully washed the dirt out of our laundry and hung it out to dry.

  • Niko

    I feel like the article says , but my patriotism still radiates from all my pores. I am ready to take America back from the elitists,beltway dirtbags, libretards, commies, socialists,Rinos, Crinos, lgbtq whatever filth, muslimes and anybody else that stands in the way of the Constitution the way America’s fore-fathers wrote it!!!!!.

  • Gail

    It is no wonder people are not patriotic . They are taught in kindergarten not to give their allegiance to God or Country . Mom and Dad don’t count do anything your heart desires as long as it is against anything right .They took History out of schools in an attempt to turn us into a third world run by illegals. All of which are committing a felony by being here. Just because Obama and rogue judges says they can stay doesn’t make it so. .Congress is the only place laws can be made or removed not the Supreme Court or Obama. But because of the treasonous Congress/ Senate we are now living in a lawless Nation that only Americans have to obey the law. This election must be about removing old establishments not continuing them .I have worked hard all my life to watch the so called leaders give everything Americans have to illegals We pay for their new cars give them money new homes all while there is 112 million Americans out of work. Speak up America or there will cease to be an America !!!! Get rid of the fake in the White House first and go down the list

  • AKLady2015

    The religios and racial hate spouted on blogs such as this one, do not make America proud.

  • barbarakelly

    What do you expect when we have liberal teachers teaching our kids that they are racist, and more then likely this is coming from the muslim in chief in the WH. Nothing like degrading our children and now they want to start this in the kindergarten classes. This is coming from the liberal teachers people and this must be STOPPED threaten them with pink slips if they don’t start teaching our history correctly or get fired. They are suppose to be teaching our kids not being a mouth piece to the muslim in chief. They need to stop their liberal propaganda crap now or get fired.!!!!!!!!!!

  • barbarakelly

    Well people if you didn’t know this one. that was leaked, our tyrant has been praying 5 times aday in the WH. He as never a Christian and became our commander by subversion. And also from sites on you tube by honest americans that the fed court is wanting to arrest him –like the Hague courts. and the NSA If he leaves the country he will be arrested. For me by all means arrest him, He has been a thorn in our side now for 7 1/2 yrs.

  • barbarakelly

    Well thats not surprising after all we have had liberals teaching our children history not with facts but made up. If the teachers don’t like what I’m saying tough. And this one I think is being handed down by obma that teachers are starting to teach from kindergarden that WHITES ARE RACIST. This has gone to far and needs to be STOPPED NOW. START HANDING OUR RACIST PINK SLIPS TO THE TEACHERS AND STRESS IF THE DON’T START TEACHING HISTORY CORRECTLY THEY WILL GET THE PINK SLIP.!! PERIOD.!!!

  • J.B. Young

    Not proud to be an American? There are other countries to live in. Even though that worm in the Whitehouse has done everything he could to destroy the real America, I am proud to be an American!

    • Retired

      • J.B. Young

        Right! They are all evil, and bent on destroying this country we love.

  • oat21

    This is so sad, I wonder if there was a Gallup poll prior to 2008 to see how many people were ‘extremely proud’ to be Americans? I’d venture to say a lot more then 52%. So when we’re all in the voting booth in November 2016 think about how proud you were before 2008, even though Bush made some bad decisions and finished poorly. What’s happened since then and how we can become proud Americans again. The past 8 years have really been worse then horrible!!!!

  • CBUJAN

    All I can say is people use your constitutional right and get out and vote the democrats out of office. Then we mite have a chance of saving our country.

  • Mr. Geezer

    No longer a proud American in a country that passes laws that defy both the Divine and Natural Laws of God.

  • survivor33

    Somehow I do NOT believe that only 52% are proud to be an American? However, I do believe that the college and below group of Americans cannot say they are proud because their are teachers teaching them all that “the constitution don’t mean “sh-t” and other liberal things. IF they only hear what the liberals want them to hear, they don’t stand a chance….Education system in this country needs to make a big change….the people that do the hiring should check all teachers out to make sure they are not radical liberals or other radical cultures. (referring to the muslim teachers that are teaching the Koran, etc.)

  • I feel any real Americans are fed up with what’s going on and I can understand that, as I too am fed up, but it doesn’t make me less of an American. If we don’t want more of this, then in November don’t vote Hillary. One thing that will happen if Trump gets it, t will take time o get this Country back to Normal and strong again. But first, we have got to get God back with us or there is no way, things will get better, no matter what we do.

  • supergun

    The ones who are not happy to be Americans are the ones who vote democrat.

  • downdraft

    Whoa there…not so fast!
    Lets not become married intellectually to POLLS!

    You oughta be ashamed if you believe that crap! Snap out of it!

    Out of billions, just how many of those are part of this poll…or any other for that matter?

    OK…just a small butt full is the answer.

    Remember, we have a treasonous Media out there who is the DEM’s tool to help destroy you confidence in America, our nationalism, our Republic…and that same Media LAUGHS AT YOU WEAKLINGS…

    …given that WHICH WE KNOW is happening, then why do we embrace the Media’s report…?

    It is a LIE!

    What we should embrace is in the structuring strengthening, and belief in the rest of America…this is NOT THE THIRD REICHT…at least not yet…but if you are a TRUE BELIEVER in this country, then it is time to kick ass against the TRAITORS…i.e.:

    OBAMA
    HILLARY
    THE MEDIA

    …and PRAY for HIS HELP AND GUIDANCE…

    Look, GOD gave us AMERICA to steward for him…we screwed up somewhat, but HE wants US to have AMERICA, not non-believers…so pray GOD will send a Junk Yard Dog that bites real good!

    Anyone in mind?

  • PBHayes

    Pride in ones country has much to do with confidence and respect for ones government. I know of no one who respects our government any longer and for good reason. Corruption and incompetence have become the hallmark of the American political culture and it’s only getting worse. Obama is the latest in a long line of pathetic little men brought forward by the Democrats and Republicans who have not been worthy of the office.

  • Tiger

    This is a process that has been churning out people who hate America for the past 40 years. We see it throughout the Progressive/Socialist movement and the 82 Communists in Congress who are all Democrats.

    But folks we need the following to be done. I myself am going to get this ball moving and hope others will follow. It is not going to be an easy job to take our country back and it will take all of us to do it. To demand it.

    1.) The WH to become a museum and open to the public. The money spent to view it goes to our disabled vets.

    2.) The president is to live in a house like the PM of London and it can be in Washington or built near the complex.

    3.) The president takes vacations on his own money. Only thing the people pay for is the plane. The security.

    a.) The number of vacations are to be limited.

    b.) Not to leave the residence in times of serious crisis.

    c.) Any family members other than his immediate family are not to ride on Air Force One.

    d.) The tax payers pay for no member of his family ever on any vacation.

    4.) The presidents wife is not to make any laws or to in any way to
    present anything that would involve the people’s rights to eat what they
    want or any aspect of their lives. She is not an elected official and should not be treated as one.

    5.) The presidents rights to EO etc. are to be limited so that they
    are not and never interfere with laws already on the books, he is to
    write no changes to any laws on the books and he is not at anytime to
    write any law. I believe that is already common knowledge but we need it spelled out in neon lights so we never have another O.

    6.) As head of the military, he is never to use them for anything
    but their stated mission. Which does not include sending them to fight
    any diseases in any country or using them for his personal vendettas or missions.

    7.) No president is to elect any Supreme Court judges. The people
    of the U.S. should vote on the candidates that are presented by
    Congress. Term limits should be placed on the judges and every representative in this country.

    If you like these ideas please help me spread them. Scream them out and push hard against this machine. Time to take down this rogue WH.

    • Dolores Adams

      Very good ideas.

      • Tiger

        Thank you I think we are going to have to get very involved and I mean quickly. I fear that there is noway for Trump to win unless the people come out in such groves that the Popular vote is so huge they cannot ignore us.

        I still don’t think H will be the candidate she is far too jaded now and the public sees it.

  • Luke

    I don’t believe patriotism is that low among Americans as they say, I think Americans answered this way because of the disappointment they have for the state of the union and the muslim in the WH running the country into the ground..
    BUT, if you’re not patriotic or if you don’t love America then get the hell out, you’re part of the problem..

    52%, it’s time to leave!!! Is our Nation perfect, hell know, even with our mistakes, we are the greatest Nation ever…..PERIOD!!
    Remember this, it isn’t the ordinary citizen(s) that makes the mistakes that effect our Nation. It is the politicians.

    • Gale

      No, it’s not perfect it’s pathetic. Greatest nation ever??? How many nations have you lived in??? It is both the citizens and politicians that have turned this country into the disgrace it is. The scum citizens of this country all want their free handouts. Politicians have become scum of the earth. I could go on and on but it’s a waste of time and effort. I assure you this country is going to keep going downhill, especially if that corrupt sleaze devil clinton gets in.

  • DrBillLemoine

    On its face, this is sad. But then I think of how few of these 52% have ever been abroad and seen the reaction of foreigners to this ‘American’. It’s mixed to be sure, but overwhelmingly supportive. One Chinese young adult transferred sleeper train cabinets to avoid bunking in the same place with me. Others were mostly indifferent to the Occidental visitor. In one lakeside park, a mature gentleman playing chess complimented me on being one American with a svelt physique, not the lumpy belly he ordinarily noticed. And there were the friends I met in the States at work, who welcomed me warmly, picking me up at the airport, flying in to meet me at that airport, putting me up at the restricted hotel on their college campus, shepherding me around Shanghai and Beijing translating everything, and throwing a large welcoming dinner the first night they refused to let me pay for. And that’s a communist nation, whose people are often condemned in these pages. Yes, people are unhappy for opportunities shut down, paychecks not rising, training too expensive, neighbors different from us–but that’s America the Beautiful, beautiful people, land of the free, home of the brave and the American Dream those people don’t have. I’d be in the 48% minority who love this country that has served me so well and continues to be a magnet for those young Chinese communists who love me and America.

    • rog363

      I like you have been to other nations and I have come to find that most people, regardless of what country, are very much like we Americans, they, like us, have children and loved ones,, they also want to be free to make their own choices but they like many of us have come to realize that is those in power, the leaders or politicians who want everyone to do as they say are the ones causing the majority of problems. It seems to me that those in power are the ones who have trouble getting along with others.

      • DrBillLemoine

        We must remember that national politicians seek in America a more perfect union. Some see that as less or no government. Progressives like me see insuring Constitutional goals and guarantees as the goal(s). If insuring equality in opportunity is to ‘do as they say’, then I’m on board for God-given rights and individual freedoms. If ‘doing as they say’ is cutting existing programs insuring retirement dignity, physical health or reducing voter or civil rights, then I’m against. We, and you, must be more particular, look closer, weigh policies and actions more carefully than ever before in a smaller, faster, more connected nation and world. To simply blame the ‘leaders’ is disingenuous, lazy and counter productive citizenship. Yet some, as you say, in DC or State capitals do not work and play well with their citizens at large.

        • ezekiel22

          You say all of this yet the concept of due process is too high of a bar for you when it comes to gun control as you said.
          If you are so easy on letting that go then the other rights we have will soon go the way of the dodo. You will never get it. You are willing if not anxious to reduce or eliminate 2 rights to attain your goal. I am not willing. Your more perfect union would mean the destruction of our Constitution.

          • DrBillLemoine

            No, you misunderstand again, deliberately or not.
            Due process takes time with gun purchasing and requires evidence of real terrorist actions that may not be evident of apparent yet. Simply barring purchasers with prior police interactions via FBI records is easier and faster within a 3 day period. No rights are abridged my way. Don’t try to be grandiose with simple regulations to head off terrorists.

          • ezekiel22

            Here is what is fact. The California legislature as part of that idiotic gun control laws that was signed by Moonbeam exempted themselves from their own gun laws. Sorry but I do not allow for a two tier system of laws. You may but I will not. Ever.
            You can dodge all you wish but actions such as this openly destroy your talking points. They are no more important than anyone else in this nation.
            I could bring up the equal protection clause which would be argued either they follow the entire law or the law is annulled.

          • DrBillLemoine

            You may have a point there, but I don’t know the wording of bills. In the rush to quiet people’s anxieties (in a state that has repulsed multiple terrorist attacks), wording gets extreme or unworkable. I believe, unlike your right wing DC majorities, CA legislators are willing to revise legislation, not ignore changes or avoid anything in the first place.

        I’m a big advocate of term limits. A president of the USA can only serve 2 four year terms. The same should be true in the House and the Senate. Also, Citizens United needs to be repealed so unlimited money doesn’t pour into campaigns. Also, lobbyists need to be greatly restricted, as well.

        It would seem geography has very little to do with our border problem. The 1933 mile southern border has a problem with the intent of the people who cross it. We don’t have Canadians crossing the border while they birth their babies and then casting anchors into the Laredo sand. Where’s my check Gringo? Neither do we have the sheer volume of drugs coming over the northern border. The amount pales in comparison to what Mexico, the rest of Central America and South America manage to cart in. What the open southern border has cost the United States is incalculable.

  • Wayne Thorson

    The Republican party is all washed up. Wait until this fall. They will be all voted out and then this country will be great again. We have had the worst do nothing congress this country has ever had the last 7 years. The American people know this. They have done nothing but look for ways to make Obama look bad and go against everything he stood for. The biggest thing was when 91% of the American people want background checks on firearms sales and they voted it down. It made it so obvious that they were bought off by that gun lobby and firearms companies.

    • Jim McCormack

      I don’t know where in America you can buy a gun without a background check , do you? In Florida, we have concealed carry after taking a safety course and full background check. You still get a check when you buy, but there’s no 3 day wait. Without a concealed carry permit, there’s a 3 day wait while you get an FBI background check. The background check you’re talking about had to do with the No fly list where people are being added w/o due process . There’s a background check even at gun shows. The strictest laws are in Chicago and DC and they both have wartime gun killings because they’re afraid to Police in the Black areas.

      • Wayne Thorson

        I’m sick and tired of gun activists always talking about buying guns at gun shows. I can go and buy any gun I want and take a background check and I will pass it. Then I can sell that gun to anyone I want to without a background check. That’s where all these thugs get their high powered machine guns ect. Everyone that sells a gun should have to get a background check on the buyer not just gun dealers. Right now I can sell a gun to a felon and he can go out and kill a dozen people with it and there is nothing they can do to me. That isn’t right.

  • Wolfman

    I’m proud to be an American….and totally despise the socialist politicians ( both sides), the bureaucrat lawmakers, the government officials that have sworn to uphold the Constitution …and totally dismiss not following this oath as a minor transgression against the Country, being told what to say ..how to say it..and whom I say it to…the daily lies , deceit, obfuscation, parsing of words, playing me for a fool by the fools playing they are patriots,….. 10’s of millions of Alinskyites believing they are the enlightened instead of the used,…. independent thought,loving your country, telling the truth about minority/ illegal immigration issues and not being PC is considered hatred and bigotry, ….while marching in step, open borders , twisting facts , hating whites /the American culture and being PC is considered inclusive and tolerant,….so while I’m proud to be an American… I hate what America is becoming. Where does that place me ( and the 10’s of millions I believe feel the same) in the 52% or the 48%??? OR are we actually the 100% that are proud to be American and the non-Constitutionalists the 0% who want to ‘change and hope’… to what???…God only knows!!!!

    This is a very sad thing to see happening.but I get it. since the Viet Nam war we have been sliding down hill, I served my country in the mid 60’s we where all very proud back then. we thought we where fighting a war for freedom. we where not! we where killing and killed so the military could test it’s weapons systems. at least that’s my opinion. America has become the police force of the uber rich we are run by corporate owned politicians. if we are ever going to get our nation heading in the right direction we must change Washington DC. and if we don’t it won’t be long before no citizen feels proud to be American!

      Time to do the following. This is my idea and I believe millions agree after this POTUS drastic changes need to be made concerning anyone who sits in the WH from here on out.

      If you agree, spread it everywhere, I intend to.

      1.) The WH to become a museum and open to the public. The money spent to view it goes to our disabled vets.

      2.) The president is to live in a house like the PM of London and it can be in Washington or built near the complex.

      3.) The president takes vacations on his own money. Only thing the people pay for is the plane. The security.

      a.) The number of vacations are to be limited.

      c.) Any family members other than his immediate family are not to ride on Air Force One.

      d.) The tax payers pay for no member of his family ever on any vacation.

      4.) The presidents wife is not to make any laws or to in any way to
      present anything that would involve the people’s rights to eat what they
      want or any aspect of their lives. She is not an elected official and should not be treated as one.

      5.) The presidents rights to EO etc. are to be limited so that they
      are not and never interfere with laws already on the books, he is to

          We have to put something into play because the president has way too much power. This has to stop. We can’t have another O. Our Republic is hanging by a thread and Trump is the tailor that can repair us.

          Now we don’t even have an FBI we can trust. Comey just spoke on Hillary. Said she had Sensitive, Classified and Top Secret on her emails but he won’t recommend prosecution, he said she was just careless. He also said she used her emails in sensitive areas of the world and that it is possible that enemies got the information.

          • Retired

            At least Obama can not pardon her. Nov. Trump will remove her from politics.

          • Tiger

            Trump needs to guard his family and his life because these people are ruthless, lawless and they will not fall easily.

            That is a fact that no one is willing to look at.

          • Tiger

            We saw lawlessness today Comey spoke for 15 minutes on what Hillary did. He said there was classified information passed and that it wasn’t classified after it was classified when she sent it. There was Sensitive and Top Secret even. Then he says at the end of all this he didn’t recommend prosecution. Why did he set the stage for it then lay that bomb on us?

            You me anyone who did this would go down. O is a sitting president, he took Air Force One and Hillary to a speaking engagement today, a sitting president. Never have we seen such behavior. He is ALL the people’s president unbelievable.

            They don’t care anymore. Their lawlessness smacks of a Dictatorship.

      That’s crap. What do you think that same poll would have been in the 60’s. “we were all very proud back then.” My ass. Also what a bullshit poll. Extremely proud on a poll would indicate that the 52% gave their own patriotism a 10. I’m sure that made them all feel great about themselves. Ask them what they’ve done at home to inspire those same sentiments in their children.

        Murdering Kennedy and having LBJ was no help either.

          Our involvement in Vietnam began during WW II.
          Vietnam was part of French Indochina.

          Japan invaded Vietnam, Japan and Germany were allies.

          America was at war with both Germany and Japan.

      Suggest you go back and study a bit more history concerning Vietnam. Anyone who thinks it was about freedom needs a wake up call.

  • Dan

    Obama is embarrassed by America’s exceptionalism, that’s why he goes on his international apology tours. People hear enough of that B.S. and sooner or later they begin to believe it. If anyone is not proud to be an American it’s because we’re embarrassed that we have such a stooge in the WH.

    • Dolores Adams

      Obama should never have been in the white house. When he said he wanted to fundamentally transform America, people should have questioned that and not voted for him.

      • Tiger

        No he should not have. But we have learned grave lessons from him. We have learned DRASTIC changes must be made and new rules placed on the POTUS.

        Here are my ideas. I intend to spread them everywhere, talk about them at meetings and get this ball rolling. Please feel free to use them, add to them etc. Help us get America back.

        1.) The WH to become a museum and open to the public. The money spent to view it goes to our disabled vets.

        2.) The president is to live in a house like the PM of London and it can be in Washington or built near the complex.

        3.) The president takes vacations on his own money. Only thing the people pay for is the plane. The security.

        a.) The number of vacations are to be limited.

        b.) Not to leave the residence in times of serious crisis.

        c.) Any family members other than his immediate family are not to ride on Air Force One.

        d.) The tax payers pay for no member of his family ever on any vacation.

        4.) The presidents wife is not to make any laws or to in any way to
        present anything that would involve the people’s rights to eat what they
        want or any aspect of their lives. She is not an elected official and should not be treated as one.

        5.) The presidents rights to EO etc. are to be limited so that they
        are not and never interfere with laws already on the books, he is to
        write no changes to any laws on the books and he is not at anytime to
        write any law. I believe that is already common knowledge but we need it spelled out in neon lights so we never have another O.

        6.) As head of the military, he is never to use them for anything
        but their stated mission. Which does not include sending them to fight
        any diseases in any country or using them for his personal vendettas or missions.

        7.) No president is to elect any Supreme Court judges. The people
        of the U.S. should vote on the candidates that are presented by
        Congress. Term limits should be placed on the judges and every representative in this country.

I will tell you from first hand experience, the young men who have fought for your right to make such an ass of yourself in these comment sections, weather they came from liberal or conservative families, were all red. They bled and died for idiots like you. Far, Far to many of them.

          Hillary Clinton should be charged, but she is a very accomplished liar. When obummer went to the church with that so-called hate preacher, it should have given the people a clue. Some people are just so dense.

      There are many ways to serve this country other than the military. If you are not willing to serve in a manner to restore this country to the Constitutional principles the Founders envisioned, my suggestion is that you leave it. My distant ancestry is predominantly of the Teutonic persuasion but I am an American

      • rog363

        I served in the 60’s but as I said to Gale ,I should have said we have no one but ourselves to blame for what what was and is happening to OUR country but claiming to be un American isn’t helping any. .We must take OUR country back and begin turning it back to what it was always meant to be.

    • rog363

      I also served my country in the 60’s and volunteered to go to Nam until I began talking to others who had been there and they convinced me not to go, I ended up in Italy instead but I am and will always be an American. Now it is up to we Americans to take OUR country back, I, like you, don’t like seeing what has and is happening to OUR country but claiming to be un American isn’t helping any. We must take OUR country back and begin turning it back to what it was always meant to be.

      • Wayne Giordano

        I am ashamed of how this country is going. We call ourselves American but yet we just sit around and do nothing. What happened to our Military leaders who stood up against Obama and had to resign? Why aren’t they trying to get the Patriots more aware of what is going on? There are millions of true Patriots ready to take up thee just cause in defense of the Constitution. We can’t sit around and then wakeup after Marshal Law is set. We already have foreign troops here along with UN personnel and their tactical vehicles. We wait any longer and it will be to late. I believe we have till September and Marshal Law will will be put in place. That’s 2 months from now. As Obama has said he is for a New World Order. He has sold this country out. Hillary wants to continue his work. Both have done acts of Treason. Had it been you or I they would have no problem putting us away for life. What makes them untouchable? Our own government is so corrupt that they don’t do anything. The Constitution gives us the People the right to take back our country. I can go on but who cares huh?
