I just sent a political e-mail to Senator Bill Frist in which I expressed my opposition to his Flag Protection Ammendment. I said...
I am a Purple-Heart veteran of WWII, and I oppose the proposed constituional ammendment to permit congress to make laws pertaining to the desecration of the flag. I feel that this issue confuses the symbol, the flag, and the principle the country stands for: freedom to speak, even if it is critical of the government.
I fought, and was wounded, not to protect the flag, a symbol, but to preserve the freedoms the country provides. Any attempt to limit those freedoms is exactly opposite what we stand for.
I signed it and posted it on a site that sends messages to political figures. That makes it easy to express your opinions... be my guest.
