If you can prove that you have only the interests of the United States in mind and if you can prove you're not against Democracy and Capitalism, then you are allowed to speak freely.
    What's the point of having freedom of speech if you're not allowed to use it to say anything that US wouldn't want you to? At that point it really seems like it ceases to be freedom of speech.

    .... I mean we all know that making freedom of speech state regulated is the same thing as having to prove you're competent enough to own a gun. Oh wow... When will the non sequiturs stop?

    Doing that would totally screw up our economy. The Federal government needs to be able to create jobs by spending more in times of economic slow downs. Unfortunately, they abuse the fact that they don't have to balance the budget.

    I wouldn't want to change the Bill of Rights.

    As for the Constitution, I'd limit Representatives in the House to serving 4 terms, and Senators would be limited to 2 terms.

    No, not balancing the budget has screwed our economy. The Federal government doesn't need to create jobs by spending more than they have.

    Fire is not speach.
    Flag buring is an expression which is protected by the Constitution. It is NOT arson. Arson usually applies to stuctures, cars, and open areas set ablaze, on purpose or otherwise. It DOES NOT apply to buring ones own personal property.

    No it isn't. Flag burning is setting a symbol on fire and calling it expression. And the government is well within it's bounds to tell us where, when, and how we can express ourselves, just not what to express.
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    I fail to see how this is a non-sequitur. How is proving that you are competent enough to write responsibly significantly different that proving that you are competent enough to use a gun responsibly?

    So what is the rational for disallowing the burning of flags?
