    Meh, patriot has been used by nationalist authoritarian regimes forever. It has always been a word that easily co-opted, because rubes are simple.

    Don't Tread on Me and the baller flag associated with it is the one that will always bother me. It was the express IP of US Soccer until the Tea Party stole it. I'm still pissed.

    Yeah, and it equates the government of King George III with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the Obama administration.

    And it doesn't even bother me. The idiots that follow him deserve to be bilked.
    I was expecting a megachurch instead of a political party. Fewer regulations, thus an easier grift. Guess he doesn't have the stomach to fake being a Christian for that many hours in a day.

    Why not both?

    Imagine that grift. Shake down existing mega churches to either get on board or risk losing their members.
