Hey Kid

You have the right to close your eyes and walk into the door, waste every opportunity given to you, spit on those human beings who gave up their lives so that yours might be better  - whether or not you judge a cause worthy, the men and women who died in our wars were trying to do just that.

I don't know who has been filling your head with such a warped, sad understanding of what your rights are, but our flag is the symbol of freedom and independence. When I was your age, I kind of liked those things. You would never catch me begging for detention and servitude. Seriously?

Our Constitution, one of the few founding documents on the planet that actually affirms that the little guy - you - has the inaliable right, given to you by GOD (i.e. can't be taken away for no reason by some PERSON, no matter how darn smart they think they are) to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. - Bet your source is real keen on convincing you there is NO GOD, too...

They will tell you our Constitution is outdated, that your rights also include a place to live, food to eat, an education and a comfy retirement, and they will give it to you at no charge... if you give them control over your life. That may be nice for awhile, until the day arrives when you want something which they do not approve of. Then you will discover that they will be the first ones to take away all of those things and much more. There will not be a damn thing you can do about it, either, because you gave up your rights and once you do that, you rarely get them back without significant pain, suffering and bloodshed.

Protest a policy, a politician, not the one thing that symbolizes your right to live your life as you see fit. Okay?
