1. I vote yes.

We certainly have problems and challenges, but looking at the numbers of immigrants versus emigrants the case appears to be clear.

2. Without a doubt.

I've recently found 6 Patriots in my line during research for DAR membership. Two were POWs.

4. There is none! Some people just have to be filled with hate.

It is a mental issue for them.

6. The US is the greatest country for its population size

Most CONSERVATIVE think tanks agree. In terms of Economic Freedom, the Heritage Foundation ranks the US as 12th with the next most populous country ranking higher being the UK (7th).

In terms of Personal Freedom, the Cato Institute ranks the US as 17th with the next most populous country ranking higher being Germany (13th).

7. Sorry CW. You lose.

America is the only country with a bill of rights LIMITING govt.

I can call the prophet mohamed a pedophile and not worry. In any other EU nation that TRUE statement would land me in jail. Your problem is an inability to understand what freedom is: your side wants tyranny and you cannot see beyond that.

8. I don't have a side and certainly not a side that can be characterised in such a comic book way

You have picked one very specific example that you seem to feel proves your point. However, the analyses by the two conservative think tanks looks at numerous general factors to come up with their conclusions. For example, Cato’s Personal Freedom Index:

“This fourth annual index uses 79 distinct indicators of personal and eco- nomic freedom in the following areas:
• Rule of Law
• Security and Safety
• Movement
• Religion
• Association,Assembly,andCivilSociety
• Expression and Information
• Identity and Relationships
• Size of Government
• Legal System and Property Rights
• Access to Sound Money
• Freedom to Trade Internationally
• Regulation of Credit, Labor, and Business”
https://object.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/human-freedom-index-files/human-freedom-index-2018-revised.pdf

I always thought Conservatives were about facts and not feelings. Well, no I didn’t.

11. Well, that's one excuse for the simplistic things you say

Not sure that’s terribly accurate though.

10. The USA was great in the past, but that greatness is gone.

Hence Trump must attempt to make it great again.
