My take on the Flag-burning amendment I've been so concerned about Kelo, that I haven't had a chance to weigh in on this one. I personally think that Congress should be worrying about more important things (like private property rights and 10th amendment violations).
However, I have an interesting point. The flag is the symbol of our nation. A lot of people hold it as their most precious symbol -- it represents their country, their Constitution, their way of life. Imagine how those people would feel to see it burned.
Ok, I still don't think that the amendment belongs in the Constitution.
But consider this: What would happen if a group staged a counter protest against flag burning protesters and burned the Koran?
Would those people be arrested? Sued? Be vilified in the media? If so, maybe a 'no flag-burning' amendment is the most pragmatic way to give our country back to We the People right now. Just a thought. _____________________________________________
