July fourth, make America great again, work towards getting rid of the lump. I feel bad that so many of my friends to the south don't feel good about their country. However there is nothing wrong with the "country", America has contributed a lot to the world over time, even though you rarely hear about those stories. There are a lot of really fantastic people and also good people that have been lead astray and just need to be reminded they are decent.
Americans just need to work on taking their country back from whatever ideology that seems to have taken control of it. Don't be ashamed of your country, only be ashamed if you do nothing about it.
