America is about determining your own words of independence by honoring those that fought to free your words with their lives. In that honor, I speak out from my failures and my successes of never being perfect. So find more faults as free Americans using the gift of human reasoning, being blessed in a spirit from the Star Spangled Banner flying over their graves. Honor them by speaking out with your own views, so we can moderate back to brothers and sisters of humanity.

Memorial Day free speech
Given to US in our Constitution,
Fought for from Colonial times
To President Day extractions,
In Town Hall meeting of all of US.

Newsweek not verifying sources,
Weapon of Mass Destruction failures
Also demanding a public retraction.
Truth is neither Republican nor Democratic,
It is a voters inherited right of passage!

Ticketed Presidential meetings of allegiances
Played like a John Wayne Hollywood movie.
Where Vietnam had no political miscues that
Those body bags needed to be hidden from view
Denied the dignity of a flag draped truth.

Republicans ready to do battle with civilians
For contradicting their corporate leader,
For creative government is having employees
That will follow blindly under intimidation,
Fearing the determination of questioning policy.

Conservatives saying open dialogue is treason
But did they support Bill Clinton or diversity?
They want to implant their dictatorial influence
Saying it is about putting religious values on US.
Applied, making one guilty of Constitutional genocide.

Family values does not come from any one church.
But divine family guides from parent to parent.
Family will never be politicians acting as parents.
A family “sending their own kids” to war for democracy,
Then taking it away on Father Knows Best dictatorship?
A family is compassion in tranquil respected harmony.

Vietnam Vets told patriotism is to be silenced, to
Still follow blindly upon another political war.
Why are there so many conservative wars?
Based on religious philosophies of one religion,
Which have economic democracy undertones?

Why cannot war help those starving in neglect?
Why cannot war help poor Africans being terminated?
Why cannot war help those wanting to speak liberally?
Why is war so important that allies become enemies,
That once we commit, we ask them to be our friends?
French bashing reminding some of past color differences!
Bullies like those of high school educational humiliation!

Memorial Day is about the color that bleeds American.
Its face is of respect for all the diversity of life that
Wealth is not just of a monetary fraternity country club.
But the heart of words joining a United States,
In the humanity of United Nations of mutual respect.
Its education comes from the poverty of equality.

This day it is about giving every American respect
Where those departed will hear the trumpet call.
Uniting them upon the heavens that claim a flag
Flying in an eagles spirit of our independence, to
Never condemn its voice of free speech questioning.

Searching, finding the concrete truth of holding hands
In the prayers uniting us but not dividing US in lies.
For when an American public is afraid to speak out,
Politicians have then created the greatest moral sin!
They have let greed incorporate US as slaves.

Let US moderate from mutual respect
That says poets will never be perfect
For their future LIES in finding the truth
By making mistakes along the way,
Finding the faith living upon your words.

Note: If one must always follow obediently or feel the retribution by being terminated “At Will” then let us claim our individual independence. Let US use our individual Constitution rights, seeing the red, white, and blue flying in our own creative minds, upon words spoken in the truth of being a true American. God bless the conservative, liberal, socialist, and other divisions holding onto American values, hand in hand with respect of individual differences joining US not dividing US.

However, if you say I must conform as a ticketed political clone or puppet, I say “NUTS” to you “I have not yet begun to fight!” Because my grave must show its independence, so it can be remembered on some Memorial Day as a patriot who dreamed upon free speech.

Somehow, maybe it because I am just so very astute, but I sense you just do not like us Conservatives. Course, I could be wrong. Not.
