Take a knee and dipshit donnie says they need to leave the country [View all]

I have always believed the most important thing for a U.S. citizen is the basic belief in the fundamental tenets of the Constitution. Not the rituals which have developed over time. Rituals do help form a bond among people. But they aren't the essential common cause. The first seven words of the Constitution should mean more then any ritual. We the people of the United States. It doesn't say I the people or some of the people who do xxxx. It doesn't say We the people who are like me. It's all of us. To me as long as there is a basic respect of people and the recognition that others may not agree with every thing someone says. It is a basic right. When they took a knee that was a peaceful protest.
