While half a nation is apparently 'dreaming' of a red flag with a hammer and sickle, and the other half is mourning the death of the first Republic, there do remain some choices. I know someone who is already flying a fifteen-stripe and 15-star flag in memory of the "star spangled banner" that flew over Ft. McHenry. - Of course, most products of Government-run schools today have no clue what Ft McHenry means, or who Francis Scott Key was, much less that their national flag from 1795-1818 had fifteen stars and stripes. I am tempted to get one. But then, I am waiting to 'see' what happens with the Florida vote count. Twenty three states did not vote for Barry Soetoro, the endorsed candidate of the CP-USA and the Muslim Brotherhood, so a 23-star flag or maybe a 24-star flag may also be an option to consider. Anything than the hammer-and-sickle!
