The United States of America

Our justice system is far from perfect, but it is what we’ve got Just because you break the law, doesn’t mean you deserve to die or get shot This is the United States of America, we are not a third world nation If you don’t live here, then we are not interested in your negative summation We have good cops and bad cops, good black and white and bad We also have our fair share of good fathers and deadbeat dads Evil is not dictated by a uniform, or the color of your skin We know exactly where we are at and where we have been We are the strongest on this planet, second only to God So, if you have a big mouth, keep it shut and be careful of how you trod We have our way of doing things that may or may not make much sense But we will get the job done, whether its Biden and Kamala or Trump and Pence We are Americans, you better recognize You can choose to be our enemy, or one of our allies

The whole world is interested in these elections and we will all be glued to the TV. I know how you all feel, natural to be patriotic. I am half Greek and half English, but as I have lived in Africa since I was 5 years old, - Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa. To me Africa is my home. Blessings my friend. Thank you so very much for your wonderful support Mark you are very kind I highly appreciate what you did for me. Jennifer.

Imperfections are hereditary faults of mankind...in every country. Politicians are no exception, especially those who currently hold office. 'MY country, tis of thee...'Ya know, it's like a family. We can criticize each other, but when it comes from an outsider, it's intolerable and not appreciated.

My thoughts exactly. Like a certain blunder from down under. We have to make the best with what we get every four years. I never watch the news from other countries. I guess I'm proud of where I live and I have no interest other than here. Let alone criticize how other countries handle their business. It's none of my affair so I keep my mouth shut. Others should do the same
