    Well, and it fits the MOOD of the country, too, since half of us want to build a giant wall surrounding the entire country; those people seem to think the whole country is under siege.

    Britain had more important things to think about. There was this guy Napoleon who was rampaging through Europe, and they had the very dangerous Luddite Rebellion going on in the home country.

    I'm one of those who would vote for America the Beautiful.

    THAT song is what this country is all about. Or, at least, SHOULD be. "He'll crown thy good, with Brotherhood...."

    If you haven't heard Ray Charles singing America the Beautiful, you haven't LIVED.

    That song would get my vote 100%. To me it represents America more than any other song I have ever heard. The story of Bates inspiration is as beautiful as the song itself.

    Because like a good liberal you only want to hear about flowers and sweet smells, while you dream of nirvana.

    Yeah...only obsess over things like comments taken out of context and losing elections you were promised...liberals are such hypocrites
