I went to the polls to vote this past Tuesday at the local elementary school. Upon arriving, the first thing I noticed, there was no flag flying on the flag pole out front. This enraged my blood pressure to a new high. Several teams representing candidates were out front politicking for their candidate. I asked each team about this issue. They all looked at me like deer in the headlights... I requested each team to contact their candidate and ask for a response and let me what they had to say by the time I finish voting.
Upon entering the polling place, I asked to speak with someone who represented the election board. They stated that I would have to address the issue to the school, which I did. The school stated that because school had recessed for the Summer, they don't fly the flag and it had been put away in storage. I told them I would go home and get one (in a somewhat controlled rage). The school immediately paged the custodian.
Upon exiting the polls, the U.S. Flag was flying. The custodian stated that he was a veteran and should have known better! I reminded him of the soldiers who have died for that flag. Being in a Defensive mod, I wondered if there was some kind of political agenda behind the missing flag.
I have contacted the County Election Board, Board of Education and the County Commissioners and made it clear that the American People are NOT to be Tread On and WE WILL TAKE A STAND!
I also contacted the local newspaper and asked if I could put an article in the upcoming issue. They stated that the deadline had already passed and there was no room. When I explained the content regarding the issue of the U.S. Flag - they said "Send it over, We'll make room"!
I have since found that there were no flags flying in other location through out my county.
We must all be vigilant in our everyday life to things around us. Stand United and Speak Out for FREEDOM and OUR RIGHTS!
Outstanding job my friend!!!!!!
