Funny that in America even keeping people alive is somehow a partisan issue.

I love all the "patriots" who would do anything for their country except the thing they need to do for their country, wear a mask 🙄😓

Wingnut: "I would DIE for that
Sane person: "Sir, we're specifically asking you to NOT die for it - is that so hard?"
If you love the flag that much, then just get a small one and wear it over your face. Everyone wins.

I can't take it anymore.
"I fought to protect my fellow Americans!"
"I would die for that flag!"
"I would die for that Constitution!"
Would I wear a mask to prevent the spread of disease that's killing my fellow Americans?
No, that's too much to ask.

I always found it disturbing that someone would rather say they'd die for their "Flag" than dying for their people, it gives the impression that you care more about symbols than living people

The U.S. is the only country where people are dumb enough to believe that refusing to cover your nose and mouth during a worldwide pandemic is an expression of freedom and a smart thing to do.

"I would die for my country!"
If you are willing to die for your country, then you should be willing to wear a mask when outside your home. It's the same as protecting the US. You are protecting fellow citizens from a virus like a soldier blocking a bullet.

Refusing to wear masks proves you aren't willing to do anything for your countrymen or country despite your words. Prove it with action, wear a mask. Otherwise shut up!

Since masks are now an anti-trump symbol I'm trying to figure out how many I can wear at once and still breathe.

How about live and let others live, and not die for any stupid reason.

So when Butch comes into hospital and needs me to intubate him, I’ll drape the flag over him and walk away.
