Now, the reason I am posting this, is because there seems to be a lot of confusion, or just plain out ignorance when it comes to the knowing of what
our flag stands for.
I keep hearing people say.. "Its just a flag"
The Meaning of The Flag
I dont think there is much more of an opinion I can add other than
"support it, or leave it".
There really is nothing left to discuss. This is OUR nation, the CITIZENS' of AMERICA. We went through ALOT just to be able to put that flag up on
our homes so everyone can see it. We EARNED that right.
Let me ask you all naysayers something, would you be able to get away with taking an American flag to another country, and screaming about how YOU
are entitled to anything and everything that country has to offer because it is a "moral obligation' by their people to give you EVERYTHING you deem
WHY on GODS GREEN EARTH, would someone think for ONE SECOND that they are entitled to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that nation gives to its own people to
whom which have worked hard to get where they are at today?
Oh I know why, cause 140 years ago, their great great great grandfathers were living there, right? So their OFFSPRING 3 generations later, are
entitled to something that they LOST FAIRLY?
Thats like saying "well, my grandapa lost a watch in a poker game, but I think that I should get it back because it used to belong to him, and I am
entitled to that".
IT DOESNT WORK THAT WAY.
It is THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAS LAND. NOBODY ELSES. NOBODY IS ENTITLED TO THIS LAND BESIDES AMERICANS. BECAUSE WE WON IT!
The Day America loses everything it has, well then MAYBE, you might have a crack at getting some of that land back, but until then, keep your mouth
shut about things you have no clue of what you are talking about.
And dont be one of those "Fly-By"posters who dont even watch the video before opening up your trap.
I will not respond to those of you who only come on here to insult and bait the people of this nation and all the hard work that WE AS A PEOPLE have
achieved over the years to get where we are at today.
Just stopping by to chime in and give my 2 cents, particularly to all the "It's just a flag" folks.
I'm a Swede, and I love my country, and my flag. If somebody defaces it, I'm going to be pissed too. It's not just Americans that feel that way.
Fine, deface a flag if you feel like it, but you better be prepared for the fact people are going to get pissed off at you. As they say - suit
That being said, even with its troubled politics lately, I still think of democracy when I see the US flag. So I think y'all can guess what I think
of people who deface it, and my guess of how they feel about democracy.
