I Want to Take Our Flag Back

When I felt despondent, frustrated and helpless in the face of these Bush Administration policies I use to read this to spark that gut feeling that this is not right, it's bad, really bad . Now today world wide I don't think the American flag stands for freedom anymore. We are not defending our Country, our government is making a mockery of it. Hello America, what the hell happened?         God Bless The U.S.A. Words and Music by Lee Greenwood   If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,

From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,
and it’s time to stand and say:

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
