The "Grand Old Party" seems to have forgotten the protocol, or at least the inference for it, when using stars on any kind of images or graphics it
is using for its party. And this is distressing, because if this kind of behavior is disregarded, the inference would be to ask what else are
"they" disregarding in reference to the United States of America.
For one, the use of the 3 stars on the GOP logo and banners of its website is simply ignorant and illustrates this party's lack of attention to
detail and being ignorant to simple matters of protocol which spell-out this very clearly.
STARS POINT UP, NOT DOWN:
When the flag is completely folded, the stars point upwards, which remind the American of his national motto, "In God We Trust". After
the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a tricorne hat, reminding the American of the soldiers who served under
General George Washington, and the sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in
the Armed Forces of the United States.
When folding the flag, each fold has a meaning, not officially now, but it was implemented once but from protest the Pentagon quit forcing the
interpretation. But the inference is there that it is indeed meant to infer.
Of the 12 folds of a flag in a funeral, Wikipedia states:
"Fold Twelve The twelfth fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an
emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
So, again, GOP, exactly why are you ignoring this inference, when it plainly has been in use for decades if not centuries? Americans want to know.
Care to enlighten the public on why the GOP use inverted stars, which do not infer homage or respect to "In God We Trust," because the reverse-use
of which would infer that you trust some other deity other than God? Enlighten us please. The GOP's lack of respect is very disturbing even if it
doesn't have any religious connotation, which any use of the stars or flag which is improper, does signify this disrespect.
