I salute the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all and pray that everybody that gives a hoot about her and the God who made her great, will stand up and say so every opportunity; and that not only for everybody else, but to erase the shame we have to feel as individuals at being silent and not pitching a fit while the carpet baggers took us over. I stand restored in repentance and hope to proclaim it by my lifestyle, my words, and my actions: To God be the glory. And if I could sing to you, it would be two main songs, Amazing Grace and America.

Oh heck, if ya make it this far, know that I can’t stand it, I gotta kick it up to 4 songs and add The Battle Hymn of The Republic and “The King is Coming!

And by the way, if nobody else but me enjoyed the past rendition, I did, and I approve of it.
