I see the British Clan and the Canadian Clan, its about time someone made the US clan. So just as long as you are proud to be an American, your welcome. I ask that you put "USA Clan" in your sig.

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?


On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!


And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust!”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!


USA all the way!

I think there are Canadian, British and Austrailian clubs because they don't have one of the biggest controversies in their country's history going on. However, whatever your political views may be, I am proud to be an American, and I am proud to ask permission to join.

Heres a song by Lee Greenwood you might like.
Source of Lyrics: http://users.1st.net/teddi/index30.htm

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
with just my children and my wife,
I'd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today,
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
and they can't take that away.

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas
from sea to shining sea.
From Detroit down to Houston
and New York to L.A.,
There's pride in every American heart
and it's time we stand and say:

I'm proud to be an American
where at least I know I'm free,
And I won't forget the men who died
who gave that right to me,
And I gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

Sweet! A Clan for the people, read by people, and made of people!

Oh here's some lyircs for a song you might like (it's in Vice City!)

Kids in America by Kim Wilde


Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the
City go rushing by
I sit here alone
And I wonder why


Friday night and everyone's moving
I can fell the heat
But it's shooting
Heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town


Down town the young ones are going
Down town the young ones are growing


We're the kids in America
We're the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round


Bright lights the music gets faster
Look boy, don't check on your watch
Not another glance
I'm not leaving now, honey not a chance


Hot-shot, give me no problems
Much later baby you'll be saying never mind
You know life is cruel, life is never kind
Kind hearts don't make a new story
Kind hearts don't grab any glory


We're the kids in America
We're the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round


Come closer, honey that's better
Got to get a brand new experience
Feeling right
Oh don't try to stop baby
Hold me tight


Outside a new day is dawning
Outside Sububia's sprawling everywhere
I don't want to go baby
New York to East California
There's a new wave coming I warn you


We're the kids in America
We're the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round


We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America

Hmmm....dcawrest, are we going to have some sort of ranking system in our clan? And how about a fancy signature?

EDIT: Whipped up a signture picture real fast.

(I know it's plain, but I dont have Fotoshop, so it's the best i can do)

Well it appears that you guys have assigned yourselfs titles... and thats fine with me. After all America is the land of freedom (just as long as you dont claim to be founder or head patriot hehe).

That sig looks alright, but i think we want something wider and not as long; but then again it is up to you guys.

I would like to join also. And I still think its scary that I live only 1 hour and 40 minutes from you dcawrest202 O__o. I currently live in Loudoun County or what my sister and me call "The Rich Hick county of Virginia" since a normal house here is usually between 400,000$-800,000$ that and going to the movies is expensive >_<
