Thanks for the effort, but a song simply is not enough for me to fly a flag that has been hijacked by an internal enemy and an ignorant populace that no longer represents what it was supposed to represent.

As long as the MarxoFascists use our flag as their standard while they bastardize every aspect of American society - and those bastardizations are seen as part of that flag - I will no longer fly it.

I fly Revolutionary war era flags only at this point. Those ideas are what I am proud of - not what has been twisted to represent this nation today.

I still fly old glory. I occasionally fly her upside down in distress depending on the news of the day.

I respect that - I just can’t bring myself to do the same.

I fly the flags that better represent what America was intended to be and the spirit we once possessed.

Your government doesn't have the authority to take your guns.

They don't have the authority, but they certainly have the power, therein in lies the rub.

"Your government doesn't have the authority to take your guns."

They don't have the authority, but they certainly have the power, therein in lies the rub.

Power? The only real power they have, is in the minds of citizens they've cowed into fear and submission.

At 100 million, the armed American public is the largest such force on the planet. They outnumber the combined military forces of every country in the world. Should the people ever choose to all stand at once, our corrupt government would immediately surrender and turn in their resignations, en masse.

As it's always been, the people have the real power. Heaven help the oligarchs if they're ever pushed to use it.

"I’m thinking we may be a bit past the point of fixing things through “democratic” means.",

Is your conclusion that:

  1. We can't fix it through democratic means because the democratic process is broken and elections are no longer fair?
  2. We can't fix it through democratic means because democracy itself has failed?
  3. We can't fix it through democratic means because although democracy is still our ideal, and elections remain free, the control of the press and government is too entrenched, and we can't win the battle of the minds to change it.
  4. Something else

Because if we can't fix it through democratic means, then we must replace democracy with something. And if not democracy then what? What can we replace it with that doesn't have the same flaws or worse?

I concur[whatever thatmeans, but it sounds highfluting] I do agree with you though. As far as voters and voting goes, the parasites now outnumber the producers and th gap is increasing each day in favor of the parasites. Add in a little Democrat voter fraud as necessaryand the future don’t look bright.

So 16 seconds after Mr. Robinson’s post you were ready with a spam graphic with zero relevance and internal lack of veracity (The implication that anyone accepts SNAP benefits for cigarettes or beer is false).
