I think that we should respect and love everyone (As the bible tells us too) but i think the gay parades and the national homosexual days are really excessive and are completely not right and thats where i think we should draw the line.

But see i dont get that though, you gave no factual information as to why hillary is better than trump.

To be fair, your president (Obama) only played golf too. Not a good enough comeback.

No, as proven many times the so called " 0.78 per 1.00 a man makes" which is commonly thrown around my modern day feminists It is NOT TRUE. The whole calculation in the first place was made by taking the median yearly income of a working women and dividing it by the yearly income of a man. It did not include the occupation, position, education, hours worked, etc. If you go to the U.S Department of Labor Statistics it will show you that an average man works more hours than the average women, whether we like it or not, its the way it is. Many different reasons for this, but that is not my place to disguise why. Then people say that the reason women are in low paying positions is because women don't get a good enough education, yet women make up 56% of the colleges in the U.S

What I'm finding alot on the "yes" side is that you cant force people nor punish people for kneeling (not standing) for the national anthem. I agree with that. The one problem is, thats not what this original question is asking. The question asks if you can still be a patriot even if you kneel for the anthem. How can you be a patriot (Someone who loves there country) if you are showing disrespect and rebellion to our brothers and sisters that died FOR YOU to enjoy your freedom in our great country? Not just to our military, but all the people that still serve here today in our government to make sure our rights as PEOPLE are not taken away.

No we cant force people to be patriotic. Just like we cant force people to follow the law. Think about it. People say your force to follow the law, but that doesent stop people from creating the worst crimes you can think of ( Las Vegas shooting for example). So i dont think you are using the right context here. If you are an American citizen, there is a life that died for you to have the freedom you take for granted and the freedom YOU deserve and to garentee NO ONE can take it away. So, we can all agree that kneeling for the national anthem is a sign of rebellion and disrespect right? So, you rebelling and disrespecting that life that gave you the freedoms you have here today, therefore to answer the question of patriotism, you cant be a patriot if you kneel for the flag because a patriot is someone that loves there country. How can you love your country when you are disrespecting your country and your brothers and sisters that died for YOUR freedom in this great nation?

May i ask you restate the question? I'm having a hard time understanding what your trying to ask.

Yes i agree with this statement. I get that some might think that something as simple as standing for a song wont make you not a patriot, but trust me, those that lost there arm and two legs, might appreciate it if you did a simple kind and appreciative jester such as standing as a sign of respect.

True, but a big sign of having respect for our soldiers/military is by standing for the national anthem, which then if you do so, you are almost a patriot right then and there (Key word: almost)

I do agree with that. However, kneeling for the national anthem is not a sign of loving your country, in my eyes and coincidentally in the presidents eyes. When you kneel to the flag and the national anthem, you are showing a sign of disrespect (which is the purpose for this whole thing in the first place with colin keapernick because of black lives matter and they didnt want to stand for a flag that treats people unequally). It is a sign of disrespect to the people that died for you to have your freedom that you have right now. Heck, even the guys that faught for our country and came back with no legs stand for the national anthem.
