Podcast: Stay seated for America
3-minute podcast with a simple idea.
Let’s go to a baseball game, or a football game or basketball, it doesn’t matter, and when they play the national anthem, with great love of country, stay seated in a moment of reflection on what makes our country so great.
The US was established without a standing army. We didn’t have a standing army until after World War II. This was intentional. We were meant to be self-governing, and we were meant to fight for the country only when the country needed an army. We were to be the militia, not professional soldiers.
I’ve always been scared to do this on my own. That a young man decided to stand up for his country by remaining seated, that’s a great act of courage, and the people who condemn him are cowards.
Let’s stand up for America, by staying seated.
