HELENA, Mont. (April 10, 2017) – On Saturday, the Montana Senate gave final approval to a bill that would take big steps toward making the state a sanctuary for gun rights by prohibiting state enforcement of most federal acts restricting firearms, magazines or ammunition. If signed into law, it would effectively stop any such federal acts in practice…

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (April 10, 2017) – Today, the Maryland House gave final approval to a bill that would set the foundation to nullify in practice some Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules that deny access to experimental treatments by terminally ill patients. Introduced by Del. Karen Young (D-Frederick) and 18 bipartisan co-sponsors, House Bill 584…

HELENA, Mont. (April 10, 2017) – After initially tabling it, a Montana Senate committee reversed course and passed a bill late last week that would legalize limited raw milk sales in the state.

A Closer Look at the American Creed

Remember, liberty is our right, freedom our responsibility.

A large numbers of memes presenting our Pledge of Allegiance and the American Creed have been crossing my path on social media lately. We are expected to dutifully salute, like, and share. Patriotism tugs at our hearts, and helps sell us on the needs of our military and more. We pledge and give honor to our creeds and oaths while being ruled from experts far away. This old VFW Dude takes pause each time he hears, sees or says the pledge, or reads the creed, simply due to the history behind both.

Most living in the U.S. know our pledge, symbolized through our respect of the American flag.  Fewer know the American Creed. It is time we revisit it before reciting it faithfully or liking it, sharing it and applauding our patriotic spirit in doing so.

Remember, liberty is our right, freedom our responsibility.
