Do you think we need a new national anthem?


There is a movement to replace our national anthem with a new one. A poll last week indicated that many Americans think that Bruce Springsteen would be the best choice to compose a new national anthem. Do we need a new one?

    Gee, I wonder what I said so wrong to get a vote down? Is there someone out there that doesn't believe in our National Anthem and standing up when it is played? Do they remove their hat or just sit there? Just curious.

    I agree with you and I would add that "artists" should not attempt to make this song "their own." It was written a certain way and that is part of our heritage and patriotism...leave it alone.

    I completely agree mlcorey. Our national anthem should be played at all sporting events, our pledge of allegiance should be recited in all schools at least once a week, and our Constitution should be upheld by all who live under it.

    I almost can't believe anyone would say that our national anthem was meaningless to them. And I have certainly never heard it sund to the drumbeat of war. How ridiculous.
