^very texas esque
it's fine. the symbolism is 13 stars, 13 stripes. both are symbols of the 13 original colonies. Why not do 14 stars, for 14 words? too much?
Texas isnt the only state with a top-to-bottom blue field. @ZeDwiver
@BraeJager - TX The original flag of the Union had 13 stars/stripes. And the 14 words is a bit of a recent cultural trend to compare to a banner our people held a revolution under.
Reminds me of this
well, yes it's a recent cultural trend... but aren't we a very modern, scientific, forward-looking, avant guard sort of movement?
And yes we are, that's why slogans can change.
I don't think the 14 words is cool enough to put on our flag.
I like it, don't get me wrong, but it's not something that we're doing to explicitly define our nation around. The slogan itself, not the concept.
It's from a vidya game
What do we need to design a succession map? Then our stars can represent the new states.
not a bad idea
blue field, fasces, stripes.
We can't really say that states will secede on state lines
13 stars is the number of the first revolution, thus representing the new revolution
well, yes, but there will be distinct provinces.
if theres going to be 13 stripes, having 14 stars is a good distinction and "explicitly" adds the concept of th e 14 words
We'll end up with a wierd number like 38, and that's based on a prediction
We should figure out a roll for like passive, wealthy older guys. Guys that want to get involved but can't do the activism. We need their shekels. @Thomas Ryan thoughts?
38 with an extra line is 88
@Norman Read the organizational doc in the leadership chat, dummy, it's all in there
I have thoughts. A logistics train.
@Thomas Ryan having a different object for the 14 is a bit obscure imo
im all about explicitness
The 14 words as a cultural phenomenon isnt worth an explicit reference
Favorite of all time
I disagree, but you have shown excellent judgement on these things in the past. Besides, we can always just change it if we want to later.
Don't remind me.
