It’s not my flag, so I write this with some diffidence, but I’m with Jonathan on this. Not only would a flag burning amendment run against American traditions of free speech, but it seems to me that trying to monkey around with the constitution in this way is not only a waste of time, but also a devaluation of the entire amendment process. The American constitution is a wonderful document, why fill it with trivia?
As to the symbolism, so far as I am concerned, the sort of people often pictured burning the flag are frequently, and ironically, a good advertisement for America. Anything those types hate that much must be a good thing.
