On September 11, 2001 we lost a lot of good friends and family members at the hands of some people that were allowed in our country because we let our guards down.  On that day all Americans joined toigether and said we would "NEVER FORGET".  Well, here we are just seven years later and we have allowed a person with the name "Obama" that has publicly told the American people that he does not and will not SALUTE the AMERICAN FLAG nor will he put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is sung.  He originally said he would not wear the Lapel Pin of the American Flad on his suit but has since started wearing it so he would not lose votes.  This man is now the Democratic Nominee for President of the United States of America. It bothers me that he is open to tell us he does not support our AMERICAN FLAG and this is what so many people have died for.  Should he even be allowed to run for the highest office in the land with this kind of attitude.  I thiunk any Presidential Nominee should be honored to SALUTE the American Flag and what it stands for.  This has nothing to do with the color of skin for the sex of the person.  This has to do with Loving our Great Land of the United States.  It is obvious that some people have forgotten all of the awful things that came from the 911 attacks.  I'm not trying to tell you how to vote but I do feel that we all need to stand up and VOTE.  We, as Americans, need to get out and vote so we don't become one of the statistics.  Voting is a privilege we have in America and we need to not forget our friends and family that were killed and will never get to vote again.  How would they feel if they were here today to see what is happening?  Let's stand up for their rights and vote on Election Day.  GOD BLESS AMERICA, GOD BLESS YOU..........

Ususaly I don't post politically...but darn it I'm red, white and blue all the way!  AMEN!  The "other guy" went through a living nightmare before he moved up the ranks.  That's character, dedication, integrety, courage, strength, honor, a dutiful servent and AMERICAN TO THE BONE.  A proven leader in my book.
