Missing in Action: Patriotism

What ever happened to patriotism? Since the mid-20th century, American culture has begun to slowly decline. Starting with the freedom movement of the hippies in the sixties and seventies, it slowly progressed to today, where the progress is continued under the less-radical disguise of liberalism. Slowly, a group of extremists works to undermine American values and replace them with their own foolish viewpoints.

The illegal immigration protests have shown a complete disregard for the American flag. Once a sacred symbol, it is now freely burned and disgraced, and few seem to care about it. Slowly, the immigrants are attacking the symbols of America, now choosing to disregard our Anthem. We speak English in this county. Not Spanish. If you have a problem with that, I am sure no one will protest to you going back to Mexico.

Once upon a time it was expected that everyone showed respect for their country. People took their hats off for the national anthem while it was sung in English. People treated the flag with reverence. It seems that is the world of yesterday. Hating your country is all the rage, and the more of a scene you can make of it, the better.

Ironically, many of the people calling themselves American citizens who insist on bashing their country don't want to move away. They hate America so much, but they still want to stay. If you hate America, that's fine. Everyone is entitled to a viewpoint. But stick with it if you have it. Don't hate America up to a point. Hate us all the way. Nothing sickens me more than political hypocrisy, which is far too common today.

If these ashamed Americans wish to leave the country, I say allow them too. I would even go as far as helping them leave the country. Every year, thousands risk their lives to seek a better life in America. How many people would risk their life for the American dream? I would much rather call them my fellow countrymen than some of the scum in this country. They are ashamed to be an American, and the rest of us are ashamed about it too.

Good spew on your thoughts and feelings concerning America and immigrants.

I'll water the Tree Of Liberty with my own blood, and I will not leave the soil of my birth.

It is difficult to survive here, and it will be getting worse come October. The dollar is already dead, we're just in the denial stage at the moment.

The only solution to me is self sufficiency.

Lets do it.
