If you aren't happy with the simple practice of standing for about 45 seconds every so often to respect the flag that represents the freedoms we all share in this great nation, you are certainly free not to do so.

Great. I'm not into ritualistic mindless pandering, and you are convincing evidence that it's not healthy. Most religions warn again idolatry, because it creates habits that harden the mind against reason.

In any case, NOT doing so is just as much a gesture of respect for those freedoms as doing so.

You are also free to choose another place to live where you will not be forced to participate in this onerous, repetitive burden.

How predictable. Maybe you'd like to move to some other place where regular devotive practice is "encouraged" Saudi Arabia.
