Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: It is only Flag etiquette

Submitted by Patricia (United States), Mar 8, 2008 at 10:35

I read the article on it being up to the individual person to salute a flag. Yes our right to salute or not is up to each person individually, however, is not for a future president to ignore. It is his or her responsibility as the Commander in Chief of our military to salute the flag and uphold our Constitution.

If a President does not honor the flag, than he or she will not be chosen as our leader. we have too many World War I and II, Korean War, Vietnam War and Iraq War veterans and veterans of all wars, to be so against what our American Flag Stands for. I should know I have family members who came home , than I also have family members who didn't return, so don;t tell me it is my choice. I respect what my flag stands for, some people in the United States have forgotten, maybe thats where the ignorance stems from. Thank you.
