Flying Christian Flags Above Old Glory
My philosophy has always put God (which is my highest devotion) and liberty equal to country until country shows itself to not respect the other two, which is the case now with 'official' America. Country can never be more important than God or liberty. They are eternal truths while one's country can go totally wrong, as ours appears to be doing now because people will not stand up and stand for anything. To those who say that they fought for the flag and it must be flown above all others I say stand up for it now! When the flag of America no longer stands for the values that you thought you were fighting for in combat, it loses its meaning. When people no longer uphold those truths which cannot of themselves become untrue, when Americans fail to make them true here in America (as they are true for all time throughout space and time in the universe), when Americans no longer stand up for what they once fought for_ it no longer has meaning. The flag is a symbol. It only means what Americans make it mean: eternal truths of God and Liberty or homosexual sex as a replacement for marriage and politically correct control for free speech. The other side is winning the culture war. You lose. You don't get to tell me what flag to fly highest. You have not stood up for it through every denigration of it the courts have allowed for decades now. Its meaning gets eroded by the other side and the courts. But the values do not. God and liberty do not fade away. They are what is eternal in the world and time, not the flag of any country. The cause of America is the cause of God and liberty and the struggle to protect those three never ends. Your job did not end when your tour of duty or service did. It ends when you die.
America's meaning and the meaning behind her national ensign are weakened, eroded all the more, by the immigration problem. . . . by the lawlessness that enables illegal immigration to function carelessly through sanctuary cites and failure of various agencies to be encouraged to do their job . . . by the very attitude of the national government. The very assault on Donald Trump's carelessly worded but partially true comments accentuates America's erosion of free speech. Keep in mind this writer married into an immigrant family, a legal immigrant family. The pretty girl killed by a stray bullet at Fisherman's Wharf a day or so ago while walking with her father was shot by an illegal immigrant who had been deported 5 times. We are supporting (in part) Trump's comments because, as he said in his own defense, they are supported by facts and statistics (something liberals have little understanding of). Of course one must begin the conversation with the fact that illegal aliens are "illegally here" to begin with. In my writings I always point out there are some that are here for dire reasons, but many (esp. many of the males) are criminals. 80% of illegal alien women and girls are raped on the way here by the men they are traveling with. That fact speaks volumes about the quality of the men that these women are traveling with, the men that are supposed to be their protectors.
And, please tell me why America owes these people anything, and if they want to be here, why they cannot come legally like others do. They have a country; let them fight to make it better or struggle legally like others to get into this one. By the way Mexico has tough immigration practices. I'm sure you will reply with one of your usual non-fact based rants about racist America refusing needy people; but no country can survive with its identity intact by opening its borders to all. That being said, I am in favor of many already here being allowed to stay after being screened. The criminal element should be deported, the border should be secured, and the remaining people screened for their worthiness to stay; the U.S should demand that their agents operating against drug gangs in Latin American countries be allowed to be armed, even heavily armed, and the U.S should take the lead in militarily wiping out the drug gang problem throughout the hemisphere. America needs to stand for something again and it needs to be the big kick ass guy on the block to uphold what it stands for with action. That happens when its people demand it and stand up to those who don't; and that will never happen. A nation with an open borders policy is doomed to lose its identity.
Old Glory is but a symbol of America. Her people define the Nation and therefore what the flag stands for. The Liberal Left is defining America now. You have abdicated. How do you grab victory form the jaws of defeat? The way you are losing: forceful, peaceful, legal protest like your enemies on the political left. You have the numbers. Traditional Americans have the superiority in numbers. But they don't have the guts of the fearlessly outrageous Left.
