Part of my family has been here since the 1600s and the other part who knows how long.I have the US flag on a two-story high flagpole outside my house. I've considered switching it out for the Betsy Ross flag to make what I stand for a little more clear, but I decided to stick with the current flag. My family has been in the new world since the 1600s, but they were never part of the 13 colonies. So the current flag is really mine in a way that the flag of the original American nation isn't. Though our founding, based as it was on Christianity and the Natural Law, is a much better thing to think about than what we've become.
