My Country Tis of Thee --First National Anthem of US-

 Thank you -Joe- for this post - I forgot I had written a comment :

last verse:
Our father's God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!

The Other Verses Here:
Our Fathers’ God, to Thee,
Author of Liberty…
Long may our land be bright,
With Freedom’s Holy Light,
Protect us by Thy Might,
Great God our King.

When I was a child growing up in the South, we used to sing that song every day. We also said the pledge of allegiance every day as we stood and faced the American flag. Now the flag and patriotism is viewed with suspicion at best, and outright hostility at worst. Frankly, I no longer recognize the land where I was born anymore. The counter culture began in the '50's, gained momentum in the '60's, and solidified in the '70's. Now the hippies and Marxist drug users of the 1960's run the nation.

They have robbed this nation of it's moral strength and faith. They have robbed us of our privacy, and they are robbing us of our liberty. If our founders were alive today, they would be reaching for their muskets, and rightly so in my estimation.

WS-a I agree with this addition -- the slow slide started in the early 1900s w/ the commies' (dewey et al ) plan to dumb down our once excellent education programs--dumb folks are easy to handle by tyrants-
