    I believe it is a 2/3rds majority. My question is what is the penalty for breaking the law?


    Rhetorical question: Does it take a 2/3rds majority approval for any other redecorating ideas?

That's the way democracy works. it's the tyranny of the majority.

    Some of us are recognizing the recent, documented history of that flag. Such as when it was first raised above the S.C. capitol, what else was happening at that time, that other states bitterly defending Jim Crow and the continued subjugation of blacks also adopted that flag in that same era, etc.
    The North was hostile to slavery ?

    It had been legal for over 80 years in the North.

    Thats some hostility there....Lol.

    And no, Tens of thousands of young men didn't go off to risk their lives because they wanted to keep slavery legal.

    The typical Confederate soldier was a farmer, working class individual that couldn't afford a slave if he wanted to.

    This would mean no Flags on government property whatsoever. Not for Protests, not for supports of any groups or the issues they stand for.

    This would include the lefts LGBT Flags and any other flags the left likes to walk around with.

    Lets watch and see them cry and whine about that issue now.

    How does that equate again? Are 9 or 10 people the total population of a state? Do you always jump from 1+1 = Mandarin Orange

    9 out of ten people enjoy sunshine? Just a reminder too.
