With war in Iraq, missiles being tested by N Korea, illegal immigrants walking across our unguarded borders, and terrorist plots unfolding, what does the US Congress believe is the most urgent issue? Protecting the flag of the USA! We say protect the freedoms guaranteed by the US Constitution. We may find the desecration of the flag wrong but the desecration of the Constitution is by far worse. Too many American citizens have given life and limb for the freedoms afforded to us in this document. Protect those freedoms, not the symbol of them.
