    Wow, and after giving me **** several times for bringing up anything he can stretch and call politics...

    No (insert your on reason)

    I would be getting way too off topic if I gave my reasons, but I kneel every time for the pledge of allegiance since the latter part of 2016. My forefathers fought in the American revolution and the Civil War for the Union army. I believe in the principals they fought for.

    well, wild guess I would say this is a politically themed thread and the others were not?

    I'm libertarian on most things. I just can't find it in my heart to care what someone else does in this case, and if I so happen to feel inclined to remain seated for whatever reason then I will.

    Freedom to do what you want, and freedom to suffer the consequences ala Kapernick.

    If you don't respect the flag or the anthem at the least you should respect the ones that gave the ultimate sacrifice so you could express your disrespect.

    A) this is a poorly written poll question

    B ) we've got some open minded people around here. Considering the normal discussions that hover around this topic I was expecting it too be much more volatile.

    Whether or not you stand for the national anthem isn't a political statement to a lot of people. Debating events that led to ending a war is another thing entirely.

    But the post doesn't even bother me personally. It was just weird seeing a post like that from a guy scrounging the forum, fussing when I use the word media and assuming I meant political media and acting like I violated the posted board rules we got. But now he wants to debate what led to the end of the Vietnam war on here.

    All poll questions are poorly worded. They debate endlessly over how even the professionally done polls should be worded.

    I'm actually somewhere in between an "I don't care" and a "yes" on this poll. But the way the "yes" answer is worded, how it includes the word "should" I thought took it a little too far, so I went with "I don't care".

    1. I didn't mean to pigeonhole anyone with the way I wrote the question or the choices. I thought the question was pretty straight forward, KISS principle and all. Maybe my yrs answer was a little strong, as @levander pointed out. But either way, there are really only 3 choices, yes/no/don't care.

    2. Since it doesn't meet your standards, how would you have written it?

    I thought about it a little after typing that and decided I actually did like the way you wrote the question. Or more specifically, the answers. Like yeah, "yes, everyone should" is very strongly worded. But so is "I don't care either way". It's like if you're kind of between the two, it forces you to make a straight edged choice. And since the point of polls is to get an answer from pre-defined answers, that's what you want. Someone to have to make a well defined choice.

    I mean it's a yes/no question right? Do you stand for the national anthem.

    A) Yes
    B) No
    C) Sometimes

    I think you tried to blend the answers into a different question and associate one thing with another. So you could say, "Do you take issue with people making a political/social statement during the national anthem"?

    A.) yes
    B.) no
    C.) sometimes

    I posted a long comment on this, but saw “your post will appear once approved.” Not sure what I said that could have violated any rules. But in a nutshell, the National Anthem is, or at least “should be” a tribute to the many lives lost/given to keep USA as the best country in the world to be a citizen. Yes, there are “other” issues stemming from it, but those are different issues than showing the well earned respect for our country. Those issues should be addressed through a different means. This is JUST imo, don’t want to offend anyone.

    And it is up to us – the DAWG fans on this forum to keep this placid and I do believe the majority of the members will do just that.

    @KingoftheSouth If you just want to take the question literally and know what the individual's personal policy on his standing for the anthem is, you've got the right way to word the answers I think. But the way the answers were worded, I think Bama was also interested in people's opinions on whether other people besides just yourself should stand for the flag.

    I just really, really don't like Florida. Maybe not relevant but had to get that out there.
