    I agree, but I do need to alter your statement, slightly...

    Why would anyone object to the burning
    of a garment "made in China?"

    Although this is a doctored up picture it makes me sick of all things we get from China are our own flags.

    They won't, because there is no reason why. None other than the fact they "don't like it".

    If they banned flag burning, I'd definitely burn a flag the minute I found out. Then I'd put one on the ground where I park my car everyday so I would drive over it and park on top of it. And, I'd put one down as my doormat. Wonder if they'd ban that too.

    I'd dip a flag in liquid nitrogen and shatter it. They never said anything about freezing a flag...

    Repeal the 19th.

    Actually, I'd make house terms 3 years and senate terms 7 years.

    This would be beneficial partly because longer terms results in less politicking, less fundraising, and more civility between parties. It would also have the benefit of making it so elections don't run concurrently. I don't think it's a good thing that we have elections every 2 years and big elections every 4 years. It would be much better to break up the rhythm so that people go and vote for the candidates in each office based on their individual merits, rather than walking in, voting D or R for the president, and then going down the checklist from there.

    I would eliminate the faithless elector problem

    I'd make the 8th amendment clearer as to what constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment"

    Well to my understanding the supreme court is supposed to be holding hearings on that when they go back into session.

    Wrong.

    The government may treat prisoners that way; however, American tax payers are not subject to government interference in expression.

    The Second Amendment should read-Congress shall make no laws as to the natural right of individuals to keep and bear small arms

    THe Commerce clause should have been rewritten to prevent stuff like affirmative action and gun control

    estate and income taxes should have been banned in teh bill of rights and the general welfare clause should have been better explained so socialists cannot twist it to support their treasonous schemes

    only net tax payers should be able to vote on matters involving the raising of taxes
