Let Confederate flag fly

So the Confederate flag comes down in South Carolina because someone doesn’t like it. The ignorant who still believe that the Second Amendment was the cause of this horrific shooting, God forbid, not the perpetrator.

In a day and age of no responsibility for one’s actions, it’s always someone’s or something else’s fault. It’s no surprise anymore. However, where is the backbone? Doesn’t anyone in this country have the courage to stand up and say enough? Why does everyone give in? No fight. No stating the facts. The rich history of this state of South Carolina; just roll over and give them what they want.

The only way things are going to change for the better in this country is for people to stand up and fight for it. What are you so afraid of? Speaking your mind; offending somebody who doesn’t agree with you?

America is still a free country. If we don’t fight for our rights, who will? God? We have already pushed him out, and are reaping those seeds that we have sown. No, we do not have to worry about another terrorist attack from abroad. We are doing a fantastic job on our own of destroying her.
