I do not salute the flag, I do not sing the star spangled banner, I work hard in a field that helps people everday, I'm not on any gov't help, I pay my taxes, I dont break the law, I'm polite and I hav 2 well behaved kids. But I do not salute the flag, I do not sing the star spangled banner, Does this make me a bad person?

  • A bad person? Well, I guess not. Unpatriotic, and someone I don't agree with? yes.

  • No. It is your choice and your right to salute or not salute or to sing or not sing. America, land of the free, right?

  • No but why don't you move out of the USA if you cannot appreciate your freedom and those who have died for it. How old are you? Maybe that is why you do not remember the wars and appreciate all those that have lived before you.

  • It makes you a bad American. If you are so ungrateful why don't you move to Africa or Mexico for a month and I bet you'd be screaming the Star Spangled Banner and saluting our flag 24 hours a day. People like you are a disgrace.

  • No it is your choice,, but I am curious to know Why you don't? I mean if your allegiance is to another country okay,,I wouldn't fault you for any choice you make as far as your personal beliefs,, but as an American, no matter what I think of the goverment I am happy to live in a country that allows women to have a voice,, I don't agree with the current administration,, but salute and sing to pay my respects for all of the people who died to give me the choice if I want to or not!!! I have a friend who is the same way,, and to each their own,,but not for me,, hope you don't get too bashed!

    I did spend a considerable amount of time in a third world country and I know how bad it is, I still wont pledge to a flag.
