Three Words: Ragged Old Flag

I support Ron Paul until the end. That being said, I really don't give a crap anymore who anyone else supports. Americans have made their bed and they can sleep in it. But THIS is why I support Ron Paul, and this is why America needs Ron Paul. And this link is why at the end of the day, even with all the bullcrap that goes on, I can still look any man, woman, or child straight in the face, and unwaveringly say: "The United States of America is THE greatest country in the world." Anyone who is feeling frustrated, or angry, or just plain upset about the current situation we are all stuck in, hopefully if you click on this link and listen, and REALLY listen to the words, you will be able to say the same thing.

Why?

Why is this all about war? Is THAT what we have to be proud of as Americans? Killing people and forcing our young men to die? How does that make us any different than countless kingdoms and empires that have gone before us?

War, conflict, violence, death and destruction "for the Flag" overwhelm people with emotion - and that is just where the overlords want us because that makes us easy to manipulate. And that is why peace, liberty, and free markets are nearly extinct. They just don't have the "juice" to make tear jerking tripe like this.

Sorry, but the Ragged Old Flag that has been torn by the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea and Viet Nam needs to be torn down in shame and replaced with a flag that represents that which makes this nation truly different and truly worth fighting for - Liberty. Not continuous war.

However, I DO like Johnny Cash!

From a combat vet...

It's not about war. It's about willing to die for an idea. The idea is liberty. I've had friends and family die for the idea... that America is the best thing out there. You miss the point... we die so that you don't have to go through what would replace liberty. Period.

The government sending us out to die to prop up a dollar is NOT what serving your country means... do not confuse the issue. They have perverted what patriotism means to serve themselves. There will be a reckoning for that someday.

The stars and stripes stands for how we got here, the blood and tears spilt so that we can live and die in freedom. The time will come again when we will have to do just that again, to be free.

Will you stand beside me at that time, if the future deals us that hand? Or will you turn your back to the sacrifices of so many and watch the NAU flag replace Old Glory?

NEVER confuse the flag and its symbolism with the government. The Stars and Stripes is what we stand for, as Ron Paul supporters. The republic.

~Live life to its fullest, with an open heart, open arms and most important... an open mind~

Not sure we disagree

Fighting for liberty - absolutely!!!! That is part of what this country should be about.

But the Civli War was not about liberty, nor was WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq I, nor Iraq II. So any "rips in the flag" caused during those conflicts had nothing to do with the glory of being willing to die for the idea of liberty. They had far more to do with government scoundrels manipulating - and even forcing - other people to die for the benefit of special interest groups and then wrapping that treason in the flag. And to me this video partakes of the same spirit that has allowed government to wrap its nasty treachery in the flag for far too long.

Unconstitutional, unjust, unnecessary conflicts do not add glory to "the ragged old flag", as this video seems to suggest, they taint it with shame.

Notice that I do not blame American soldiers at all. Soldiers follow orders. And they should be honored for their bravery.

Did you eat paint chips as a child?

It has everything to do with liberty. Liberty for the slaves during the civil war, liberty from the tyranny that Hitler WOULD have achieved had the allied forces not stepped in. You go tell Poland and France and all the other countries the Third Reich invaded that WW2 was for nothing. Make sure and tell every black person that you come into contact with that the civil war was fought for nothing, that their freedom meant nothing.
