Still Flying My Flag
Sure, our country has lots wrong with it. But at least we're free to express our opinion about what we like and don't like, without worrying about a knock on the door at 2 AM before being carted away to prison. I'll complain as I write the check for my taxes, but I'm free to voice those complaints. If I don't like what a political office-holder is doing, I'll let the world know, and I'll cast a vote to change that when the time comes.
As the song goes, "I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free..." I'm continuing to fly my flag, because--despite some rather significant blots on its reputation in the past few decades--I'm proud of my country. May God bless America.
How about you?
