This is not freedom. It is a symbol of the freedoms you no longer have.
You can have a forest of flags flying at your home, and that home can still be entered without a warrant.
You can have a flag pin on your lapel, and still be detained indefinitely without counsel or even a formal charge.
You can fly flags at your public gathering, and that gathering can still be forcibly dispersed.
You can sing “God Bless America” til you’re blue in the face, and your emails, browser history, text messages and more can all be under surveillance — even if you’re not actually suspected of any wrongdoing.
Wake up. You are not citizens of a free country. You are a cult of flag idolaters. You have been force-fed the symbols of freedom until you can’t tell the symbols from the substance.
But hey, enjoy your hot dog. I’ll have one too, please.
