Symbols often mean different things to different people. To some, the Confederate Flag is about freedom. To others, it is about slavery. Both of those meanings make historical sense. I can easily understand why some people are offended by the Confederate Flag. I have a harder time understanding why some people are offended or ashamed of the American Flag. I also have a hard time understanding why some are offended by religion and spirituality.
At the end of my previous post, I asked why someone who hates a country or is somehow ashamed of the flag of that country would want to run for office to become a leader that same country. It seems like either an inexplicable contradiction or some sort of treason. This is the question asked by conservatives of certain liberals. A similar question has been asked about conservatives who, after railing against government interference and claiming that government can do little right, end up serving over the same departments they openly detest. Anticipating that some of my readers may conflate these two issues, I thought I would address the latter in more detail.
