    I could say it, but it wouldn't mean a lot because I don't believe in god.

    I'm capable of vocalizing the phrase in question, (I can type it, too!) however, as a Libertarian Socialist, I feel no compulsion to do so.

    Re: Can you say 'God bless America'?

    I could say it, but I don't think God blesses America more than any other nation so no I don't say it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No it isn't. Can you prove this from scripture? God has no "chosen" country anymore.

    Sure, God blesses the red rocks on Mars too.
