It seems to be the goal of the liberal agenda to homogenize America and in doing so, remove the individual from the equation. It seeks to replace regional culture and values with a national belief system that has nothing to do with being united under one Constitution. From one side of their mouth they are telling us our strength as a nation is based on its diversity but from the other side of their mouth they want any lingering references to that diversity to be removed. We are being told that individual beliefs will lead to the downfall of a once great nation. We are being told that displays that venerate our individual or regional culture and values may be offensive to others, who, by the way, have the same right to displays venerating their culture and values. Some people see the Gadsden Flag as a call to revolution while I see it as a reminder of the strength and resolve of those who fought and died for the birth of America. I think the Confederate Flag holds a similar meaning for those in the South – to honor those who were willing to fight and die for their beliefs. To deny our history is to deprive ourselves of the richness of our experience and deprive future generations of an understanding that unless we are willing to lead, we will be led. The ultimate destination of those being led is often a guillotine or a gas chamber or imprisonment in mediocrity. Always remembering Martin Niemoller's powerful words "First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
