We can well understand the growing contempt for the criminal thugs who lead our national government, but the flag does not represent the regime in power. It represents the history, constitutional foundations, the sacrifices of patriots, the culture, faith and ideals of the American people. In the case of this New Jersey town, we suspect it is not revulsion at the Obama regime that motivates their efforts to eliminate the American flag.
We have a proposal - a simple amendment to an appropriations bill that any Member of Congress could offer and that most should support: Any city, town or incorporated village with ordinances prohibiting the flying of the American flag will be ineligible for any and all federal aid, grants and loans.
It would be a small but meaningful step toward reducing Obama's $16,000,000,000,000 deficit.
