It would be nice if more things were manufactured here in the US. I'll pay the higher prices. I don't think there is anything sacred about our flag though. We're a republic, not a monrachy. Flags are just big ugly flags. We have to have one because we need something that says who we are without having to write the name of our county out. I enjoy flags, but I don't see why we need to make them out to be something bigger than they are. I trust in human ingenuity and reason, not in the sanctity of symbols.
