Will you stand up

DS-Arms SA58 FN/FAL next to a river in southeast TexasIf you do not stand for something, you will fall for anything.

I stand up for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is the right of everyone, and not a select few.

I stand up so that everyone, regardless of race, religion, sex or location, can have the right to a trial by an impartial jury.

I stand up to say, no one person should determine the fate of an accused.

I stand up to say, the accused shall have the right to present evidence in their defense.

I stand up to say, that everyone, regardless of the evidence presented, is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

In murdering innocent people, the US has committed crimes against humanity. On this day, I stand ashamed.

I stand ashamed that the US government has, held people without a trial.

I stand ashamed that the US government treats bankers better then the working class.

I stand ashamed because we waste more food then most people will eat in a lifetime.

I stand ashamed because our children are not taught history and values.

I stand ashamed because our younger generation would rather play video games then vote.

I stand ashamed because two corrupt political parties control our government.

What will you stand for? Or will you lay down and let the government continue to walk over its citizens?
