I don't know.
Remember politics are "Verboten" on this site.
So I will try to answer without stepping on the rules.
I think somehow patriotism has been politicized to some extent.
I choose to display our flag because so much of my adult life has been spent defending it. I refuse to allow patriotism to die and feel it is not demeaning in any way to show how proud I am of what America has accomplished by flying our colors.
Remember it is the symbol of the American people and not one party or another. No matter what flavor you are; you should not be afraid to show the colors for fear of being politically branded one or the other.
