Once Proud American

Posted on 01/22/2013 7:27:46 PM PST by jongaltsr

Would love it if anybody with the resources could produce a "T" Shirt with an Eagle with a drooping head and the words "Once Proud American".

Let me and the rest of the freepers know if you can produce such a "T" Shirt and we'll spread the word to other web sites.

I’m still a proud American. I’ll leave the shame to Michelle Obama.

I’m proud to be an American.

Always have been, always will be. Period.

I just do not like our President.

Had shirts printed for the early Tea Party rallies. Minimum order was $500 - money I considered well spent. Check with your local sporting goods store to find out who does their silk screen work. Hardest part will be getting an artist to do the original (not that hard as my son-in-law did it for me). I don’t suggest that you try this as a money making venture but rather try to sell one of many conservative organizations on the design and let them do it.

Dude, I’m proud of this country. It’s only the imbeciles who voted for this POS liar and his sasquatch pet of a wife that I’m not proud of.

Pride means we’re unbeaten.

Maybe a better design would be an angry looking eagle with a black eye. Injured but no where near done.

Dude that was pretty cool.

Same (general) post, at the same second. Yours was first in the thread. Mine in the series.

Neat.

Those who love liberty must not bend to tyranny--even in symbolism.

Find an image of a confident eagle, one who knows he is designed to soar in accordance with his Creator-endowed abilities limited only by the laws of that Creator.

Don’t know about being a proud American, but I’m no longer proud of my countrymen.

Those are precisely the ones I want to shame with that “T” Shirt.

F*** the Leftists. They have no pride or shame, just unfounded opinions.

Y’all beat me to it. I am a proud American and the anti-Americans among us cannot take that away from me no matter what they do or how hard they try. You do NOT forsake America. You fight for her with every ounce of strength in your body.
A majestic American eagle does not hang its head. It soars proudly high above everyone else’s.

Hell no. I am not bending to tyranny. I just want to show those with no spine or principle that I have lost faith in my fellow Americans - “THEM”.

I AM THE PROUD EAGLE but I want every Leftist to see that I am ashamed of “Their” action (NOT mine).

I find it hard to understand how some 200 odd weak pudgy half witted politicians with no actual experience at life other than attending cocktail cloisters, could beat down and force into submission about 150 million strong , proud americans, steeped in heritage and capable of building america into the greatest power on earth , only to sit by and allow the 200 feeble minded weekling dorks to run into the ground

AMAZING

How about maybe an eagle hunkered down in its aerie with snow on its shoulders with a caption to the effect of “After the winter of Obama will come a new Spring” or something with a “hope springs eternal” type of message.

It’ll convey that things look bleak for now but we’ll get through this and soar again one day. (I hope that’s the case, but dread what damage the left will do for the next 4 years)

I am rather more optimistic.

Right now Democrats seem to have won a lot. And they won, that is true.

Except they lost the House, so they can be slowed down.

In three years from now, we will be starting a serious presidential campaign. So that year is on hold.

In two years we (could) have a turnaround in the Senate.

So basically that leaves two years.

Except, the second of those two years will be to try to keep the Senate.

So pretty much Dems are going to rush like crazy to implement everything right now.

Which already isn’t working.

I remain cautiously optimistic.

"Once proud" American, huh?

It's way past time for people to come to grips with the fact "America" is now just a big land mass of moochers who hate the military and have just re-elected an African communist scumbag as their president. It is simply not a nation worth defending anymore. America is dead and gone. The Democrats have won.

Somehow I don’t feel so close to my “fellow Americans” who have saddled us with tyrants. We have been heading down the “road to serfdom” for a long time.

No, they haven’t won at my house, either.
Just because I’ve come to grips with the reality of America’s decline doesn’t mean I’m laying down. I will do whatever I can to wage war on the Democrat scum until my last breath.

I’m thinking an eagle coming in for a kill and the talons are reaching for symbols for facism, communism, etc.

Too many are buying the illusion presented by the left.

Alinsky Rule 1: "Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have".

The fact is that we have considerable power. We have 3 branch majorities in twice as many states as the democrats. That's a considerable block of power. We also have the house despite the problems there.

To: jongaltsr; Liberty Valance
The vigilant and proud eagle posted by Liberty Valance reflects your spirit, jongaltsr, and communicates strength to all, especially to youth, who must be taught that liberty requires vigilance and dedication to duty, and that there are those who, like you, stand proud, despite negligence of duty by many of your fellow citzens.

As to the ignorant and "spineless," their limited world view likely would not interpret the symbolism of a "drooping head" and "Once Proud American" as any sort of commentary on "them." Right now, they fit the mold of those described by James Madison in these words:

"Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant--they have been cheated; asleep--they have been surprised; divided--the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?...the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it....It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free." - James Madison

They need to be "enlightened" and "awakened" to their duty to the Creator and to America. We must remember, the "liberals," aka "progressives," have spent decades censoring the ideas of liberty from the textbooks and public discourse. As a result, a large portion of the citizenry lacks understanding of the principles underlying their Constitution.

Keep the faith.

- - even the “Free Telephone” Lady is pissed at Obama for making promises and then instead just make things even worse.

she woke up.

I have heard of others who have already seen the error of their ways.

Only the elite Jet Setters are happy but I wonder how long that will last when they realize that Osama (Obama) will turn on them soon and have them grab their ankles and tell them to smile when he sticks it to them.

Oh, you chose the eagle. Powerful image.
I liked the ‘revolution’ image also.
Pray to God that that comes to fruition before the Marxist/Muslim destroys America beyond recovery.

I’m glad you liked the pictures.

It symbolizes America (eagle) taking back the country from the Marxists.

I love the ‘revolution’ image.
If only that would really happen.
Love to see Obama sent to prison for the rest of his sorry life.
