What do you think should happen to Uncle Sam, the icon of the United States?
Uncle Sam has been the so called, icon of the United States. As the Nation and the population gets older, so does the images of Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam has been presented as the health, the economy and spirit of America. He is supposed to be the represented view of the United States.
What an interesting question. I will be pleased to read others' comments. At this juncture, Uncle Sam is the guy who takes but doesn't give. He is dying, if not dead. Nobody likes Uncle Sam anymore.... if ever they did. He will die a paupers death.. without flowers or anyone to attend his burial.
As I have seen the United States go down-hill in the areas of honesty, freedoms, family, government and basic rights, so also I have seen Uncle Sam. In the past 20 or so years, Uncle Sam has started showing old age like the baby-boomers, retiring.
The U.S. (Uncle Sam) icon is a majestic historical figure that depicts the USA.
It is recognized just as easily as the flag (Stars and Stripes) of the USA.
And, just as the "Stars and Stripes" should remain the only flag symbol of the USA, "Uncle Sam" should remain as the icon.
"Uncle Sam" ages just as the country ages.
And through the ages, "Uncle Sam" has become wiser and brighter.
However, your question infers that "Uncle Sam" is the represented view...
This is a great misconception.
"Uncle Sam" constitutes freedom and liberty provided by the patriots that rally to the needs of the nation, not a perceived represented view.
This is fully understood by those swearing an oath to support and defend the Constitution.
It is also easily recognized by patriots that strive to secure a future filled with freedom and liberty for the citizens of the nation.
"Uncle Sam" is recognition of a mutual guaranty for "the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them".
Those who would belittle the icon of the U.S. undercut the greatest nation in the world.
No other nation has ever achieved success equal to "Uncle Sam".
"Uncle Sam" was right for the 1800's, the 1900's and is even more excellent for the 2000's.
"Uncle Sam" will continue to be right for all future generations.
Patriotic Citizens of the USA honor "Uncle Sam".
And - they always will.
Patriots respectfully call themselves - Americans.
They do not require a hyphen that separates them from others who have also honorably served the nation.
"Uncle Sam" genuinely depicts all honorable patriots.
