    Well, as an aside, I never did claim to love the country. I'm not patriotic at all. I was born here. I do love a lot of things about it, but if things I hate start outnumbering the things I love, there wouldn't be any moral dilemma over getting out while the getting is good. I've considered that I may want to move somewhere else one day regardless of the state of the government. 
    But when I say "the worst it can get", I'd say my signifier is if the first amendment is ignored/violated grossly. In my mind, if that happens, it's only a matter of time before democracy falls, authoritarian government takes over, at which point I could either join whatever resistance comes up and risk imprisonment or death, simply comply since I'm white and fall in line with what they say (the most cowardly option of all if you ask me), or flee. And even fleeing may not be enough, since this extreme right uprising is happening in several countries worldwide. 
    If checks and balances are unable to prevent America from becoming something that isn't recognizable as the same country anymore, I want no part of it.

    As a Giants fan, the Cowboys are very much not a likeable team.

    Porcello deserved that since his team was in the playoffs and not the Tigers. Max Scherzer won the NL CY Young award.

    I mean I like America. That's lots of great things about it. There's also plenty of bad things. But nationalism just hasn't ever resonated such me. I've never even been to another country. Who's to say there aren't other, much better ones? I'll do so much to preserve this one, but if it reaches a certain point where to do so would endanger my life, yeah, I don't like it that much.

    The problem, I think, is even if Trump doesn't hate gay people and Mexicans/Muslims as much as he said he did during his campaign, his followers will latch onto the ideas because that's what made Trump beloved in the first place. Racism from Trump supporters was always rampant, him winning just gives them a reason to justify it now.

    I want to root for the shitshow to happen but I can't do it when it's gonna affect my own life. This is gonna be a long night.

    It's not excusing anything. Honestly you seem deeply entrenched in your own opinion that screaming is inferior to singing and that is exactly that, an opinion.

    You shouldn't be, they're one of the greatest post hardcore bands of all time

    "My Last Serenade" is one of the best metalcore tracks.

    I have no problem whatsoever with anyone saying anything bad about Trump. Unfortunately it doesn't work both ways and if you want him to win the election you get labeled as a monster and have everyone coming out the woodwork to let you know how horrible you are. Keep posting negative stuff about him, doesn't matter to me. If I'm not responding to it, it doesn't mean I'm angry or biting my tongue or anything. I enjoy reading this thread.
    The one thing that does seem slightly annoying to me is when everyone calls him Drumpf. Seems quite childish. Why don't you call him stupid doo doo face while you're at it? Now I know how Ruiner feels when he gets annoyed by them called E Corp Evil Corp on Mr. Robot. But other than that, I don't get bothered by any Trump stuff you guys post.

    Not sure if this has been posted before, but I just discovered this recently. Coheed and Cambria's friends made two albums, this one is from the first one.

    I'm a die-hard Bernie Sanders supporter and big critic of Hillary Clinton, but I'm voting for Hillary Clinton anyway. Here's my completely sanctimonious, completely you-didn't-ask-for-it explanation on why:
    If you read all of that... thanks. I know it's a lot. I feel better putting it down somewhere, though!

    5th At The Drive-In - ‘Relationship of Command’ - 120 (Green Baron #1, Xeph #2, Nick #3)   ____________________________   4th Papa Roach - ‘Infest’ - 150 (Chris #1, Lucas #3, AI #3, Paul #4, Chicago #4)   Maddest shout out to the ATDI voters.  Relationship of Command was number six for me.

    The Sickness is number two of all the albums in 2000? Ewwwww. I thought that came out in 2001 for some reason.
    I mean given the audience the winner was never in doubt, but with number two I expected a hell of a lot better from you guys.

    Well now I need to go to the TL Picks so I can understand the context of this rather strange request.
