>>>WRT #21, that is the liberal straw-man to take a knock at the Flag desecration amendment. The liberals say if you can't ban all sorts of mistreatment then we shouldn't be able to ban any. Pure BS and a very weak argument indeed.
That wasn't my argument against the amendment. I was just merely pointing out that it is not specifically a flag burning amendment as desecration has yet to be defined. My argument against this amenendment is based on free speech grounds.
Free speech grounds is an argument when other arguments don't sell. There are countless cases where free speech is controlled or sanctioned by the government with penalties for misusing ones free speech. The CFR bill reluctantly signed by GWB (McCain Feingold) is an affront to free speech but it does not eliminate speech in that it only forces accommodations for the general benefit of the election process (BS but that is how McCain sold it). The USSC apparently saw it similarly. Outlawing flag burning does not outlaw speech, it requires that one use other methods to get their anti-American and liberal/socialist/communist views on the front page.
