Why I support burning the flag
I support people being allowed to burn any flag be it the American flag, the Canadian flag, the gay rights flag etc.. for many reasons but it all boils down to one thing. In America we have fought long and hard to maintain our independence and we have certain rights that are always there such as the right to say what we want and to express ourselves. Burning the flag is a form of expression. It is representing dissent towards a political ideology or a war that is being perpetuated or anything else that one disagrees with. If it offends people that is their fault. Limiting liberties based on your own personal feelings is not acceptable and thus I could care less if those types of people are offended. Burning the flag is exercising the most basic of human liberties and thus I support it whole heartedly.
