That's how this campaign seems to have affected
Not "that" country over there....
Not "their" country.....
Not even, "that parties" country....
for Pete's sake....
We are a country of unlikely brothers and sisters....
We can ALL trace our family to another shore....
Truth be shown,
none of us are from

validate the theory that all humans on the
North American continent

(and let me be very clear here)
no one person can save us,
and no one person can bring us down...
We are so much stronger.....
Good manners are the privilege of the free....
Good manners are the duty of the brave....
