As professional sports teams move to change their names as society changes and to show respect to minorities, I believe there is one other name that needs to be changed. That is the name of our nation. For two important reasons, the nation needs to consider a new name for the United States of America.
Firstly, as many groups have pointed out, the United States has suppressed the rights of African Americans and Native Americans for the entire life of this nation. Slave ships flew Old Glory, not the Stars and Bars. Some would argue that there exists institutional racism in this nation and the name United States may bring shame to some and fear and apprehension to others.
Secondly, after the irregularities in the recent elections along with the direction this nation is going, I think it is offensive to our founding fathers and the flag and republic they gave us. As socialist democrats take this nation closer to socialism and continue to strip away our rights, I think it is offensive to the brave men and women who have fought and died to maintain our freedom and to save the world from fascism and communism to take away the freedoms they fought for. It is offensive to the ones who came to America for religious freedom to be kept away church while politicians do what they want and gather as they please. It is offensive to shut down small businesses and schools while large corporations and Hollywood can do as they please. Where a nation is told their body their choice when it comes to abortion, but you have no right to your body when you do not want to wear a mask all day or take an unproven vaccine for a virus that has been overblown for political reasons.
I think we need to come up with a new name and I have two suggestions based on where our nation will be over the next few years. The first is the People’s Republic of America or my personal favorite American Socialist States. Your choice, while we have this choice.
