    Taken down from government buildings? Yes. It sends the wrong message. Abolished? No. It is part of our history and will forever be.

    I say no. The argument is that it represents racism and slavery. That is stupid. So does the American Flag.
    People can fly whatever flag they want. Remove that symbol of racism, white supremacism, and treason from government property. Burn it.

    No state government should sponsor display of the Confederate flag.

    Of course anyone can have it tattooed on their forehead, that's their 1st Amendment right.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    This obviously depends on what "abolished" means. I voted no because I assumed it refers to banning display of the confederate flag whatsoever, and I only support an end to its state sponsorship.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    There's nothing wrong with the confederate flag, it's a symbol of the South.

    This is just another example of Northerners wanting to deprive Southerners of their unique culture and heritage.

    A tie is a tie. In hockey it's good for a point. In war it leads to a DMZ and cheap cars. Mexico gave up Texas and Cali...you're right. Not impressive. Brits may have burned the White House, but we chased them up into Detroit--a losing situation by any measure--and then left them with nothing to call their own but Canada.
