    NOPE!

    Too expensive to achieve a reasonable ROI

    Who cares for soccer anyway.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Nope, we have no money and it's a waste of time. I don't think we should bother with the Olympics either.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Hell no! It's way too expensive. Shouldn't try to host the Olympics either. The world should just have some central location that hosts all of our world challenges and sporting events.

    We certainly don't need a repeat of this travesty!

    Don't work out, work in.
