    How do you all feel about the MAGA Hat? I have one and enjoy wearing it. I get some nice compliments for it and some strange looks. I think that it may have earned a battle scar for my old F-150. It looks like someone may have scratched a figure eight just aft of the driver's side door.
    A local Arab businessman asked me to mow his yard one day, and I wore the MAGA Hat while working. It looked like there may have been 2 or 3 families living at the residence, and I think I may have freaked them all out. The man came driving back to the house shortly after I started, I think just to get a look at my hat. He was very cordial, and I was sure to do a good job, but he hasn't asked me to come back.

    If you wear one, tell us if you have had any strange experiences. If you don't have one, get one and wear it often.

    On that note, I rarely see nice vehicles with Trump stickers and I wouldn't put one on my Jeep because I would be seriously unhappy if I got keyed. Funny how this doesn't seem to happen to vehicles with Democratic stickers, eh? I did see a nice the truck just the other day with 2 Trump stickers and the thought of what was probably coming his way made me cringe, - I've heard several people say they got vandalized after putting on a Trump sticker.

    I do have a 3rd brake light that lights up U.S.A. - some of the same people would probably key you for being patriotic too, but I figure they don't see it unless I'm in it and driving.

    You need to put a rainbow sticker on your Jeep for protection. People won't key it because that'd be a hate crime and anyone with a video doorbell who catches the action will turn it in to CNN. :)

    I don't wear the MAGA Hat into restaurants for fear that a progressive-minded employee may feel the need to expectorate into my food. Whenever I wear the hat, I try to be extra courteous and helpful to everyone.
    It is really a rotten shame how some people react to supporters of our duly elected president. Progressives tend to bristle at the sight of a "Trump" hat or sticker, but an individual can walk around in public with his pants fastened below his gluteous maximus and a hand over his private area without a word of critism. How on earthdid we aquire such a twisted set of values?

    Years ago, I had a sticker on my car that simply said: "God is neither a Republican nor a Democrat." It got ripped off at my church where I was a deacon and everybody knew me.

    I've also been told 3 times to my face that a Democrat can't be a Christian.

    I don't understand your statement. Both of these were done by Republican "Christians."

    I wouldn't rip off someone's sticker, especially one which spoke the truth

    Hey Benjamin. Let's get a grip on reality. Look at Mr. Trump and realize that he is a wealthy man and he could have stayed out of the political arena and just enjoyed life. Because he didn't we have a chance at turning things around for the better. Mr. Trump has endured so much harassment and has had to watch his friends and associates harassed and jailed for his unselfish act of trying to heal the nation from the ravages of unchecked liberalism.

    Go ahead and put the sticker on your nice vehicle and if you see someone vandalizing your vehicle or anyone else's, get out your cell phone and video it for the police. The nation is in crisis, and we need to go full speed ahead toward ending it. Our descendents may feel ashamed to know that we cherished the nice paint job on our new cars and trucks more than the good of the country.

    So you're suggesting I stick my neck out there, show my colors on my property and leave in laying around unprotected and take one for the team and then wear it as a badge of honor, that'll teach um!

    Okay, I'll have to get a grip and think about this one and I'll let you know. ;)

    It was probably a Democrat that knew you and didn't like the idea of you of you saying it wasn't important, although it could have been a Republican that knew you as a radical Democrat and figured your true agenda were to discredit Christian Republican values on church grounds. Glad that is all they did...

    Why consider putting anything you own in jeopardy? Especially a political signature that you know is going to be reviewed.

    A person who supports the platform of protecting abortion rights can't be a Christian. Read the DNC platform.

    I never was a radical. I was a Deacon, Sunday school teacher, sang in the choir and did lay preaching in a local retirement home. I also served on two pulpit committees. You might say I was a radical for Jesus but not in a political sense. There is no such thing as Christian-Republican values. I have Christian values. It has nothing to do with politics.

    If you call murdering unborn babies by the millions a "mote", you have serious issues.
    The beam is out of my eye. I can clearly see your absolute blindness.

    How does the abortion plank in the platform of the candidates you support fit into your "Christian" values?
