Stand for the Flag

By Rex Barber

Countless thousands have died fighting Americas wars since our revolution. They have been buried in American soil, died in foreign lands or slipped beneath the waves to a watery grave. The #1 reason you stand for the American flag is because those who have given their last full measure of devotion to America can no longer do so themselves.


When you stand for the American flag you stand for We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are creates equal. You stand for basic human rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights and you stand for the constitution the political structure that promotes these things and moves them forward.

When a bunch of NFL football players who have reaped the blessings of liberty to a very great extent refuse to stand for the flag simply because the world isn't perfect according to their views and opinions. They show their true character that of PUNK CRY BABEYS at best or at worst they do not posses an AMERICAN SOLE.

I have absolutely no toleration for them and zero respect. THE SOBs SHOULD BE FIRED. END OF STORY.
