If you want to protect the flag, would you say it's okay to burn a copy of the Constitution?
While there are people who would object to you burning the Constitution or the Bible or numerous other symbols and artifacts in our society, this campaign is about the flag. It's about the flag because there is, simply, nothing else like the flag in our society. You can't draw apt analogies to flag burning because there is no other act that arouses the same sense of outrage. The government belongs to the people and was created by the people and for the people. If the people wish to make new laws or change old ones, they have that right if they follow the procedure outlined in their Constitution.
