1. Well I am not surprised

 

next you will see the pledge and an invocation.

I wish I were kidding.

2. What's wrong with it? It's the anthem of the nation having an election

I can think of other things to complain about.

Lower the volume on your tv if you don't like it.

8. I think patriotism is fine, but it can and should be questioned if it goes awry

I've always had a soft spot for this one;

“My country, right or wrong,” is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying, “My mother, drunk or sober.”

- G.K. Chesterton

7. Good to hear

If the party shared the OP's attitude we'd never win an election

14. Sung beautifully by someone with a beautiful voice. We're about to have a national election...

 

Why not sing the National Anthem before the debate starts?

Way different than a sporting event.

I liked it.

I have no issue with it being played before a debate.
