I served in the US Navy from 1983-1989, but after this last election where the Communist Party USA newspaper declared “We Won” I have come to realize my service was in vain. While I did a small part to protect America from the dangers of communism and socialism, America has chosen to voluntarily go down that path of slavery.
I will not fly an American flag again as long as America now chooses socialism, communism, or any other kind of slavery over the freedoms and rights talked about in the Constitution. Don’t get me wrong, I will always personally show respect to the veterans that I know (my own son is now a veteran of Afghanistan) but all of these free meals and parades are crumbs tossed to the heros while the real prize is given to the Federal government to enslave us.
I’m not going to fault the veterans who shed blood on behalf of a sane America that existed in the past. But I understand your sentiments, and all the same, thanks for your service.
Many communists I know on facebook are giving their so called respect and thanks to our veterans today for their freedom. I am commenting on their posts “...and yet our country stuck a stick in the eye of every veteran who has served, fought and died for our freedom by voting against freedom.”
My flag is also down. I thought about walking out on the national anthem last night at an event. That anthem is too good for this country.
In Flanders Fields
Lt Col John MacRae, Ypres, Belgium, 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
On this Remembrance Day, may the Lord watch over and protect those who are defending our liberty. May He also open the eyes of those who do not believe, drawing them closer to Him, to see His Grace, Splendour and Love.
my flag is down too. iwas in germany in the late ‘70s when there were still germans who knew we had saved them from communism. interesting, today the countries i respect and would fight for were the enemy when i was in. western europe and half of amerikans are not worth a bucket of warm spit.
