"The Senate began debate on the flag-burning Amendment yesterday. It's within a vote or two of passing and already has passed in the House. If it passes by a 2/3 vote in the Senate, it must be ratified by 38 states during the next seven years and then will become the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The Constitution is not a rough draft. We don't need to amend it, particularly for something that would serve as precedent for lfurther restrictions on our First Amendment rights.
It's not too late to take action and fight for the flag. Tell your Senators to:
- Please vote "no" on the Flag Amendment. This amendment violates every principle the flag represents.
- The Flag Amendment would, for the first time ever, restrict freedoms granted to us by the Bill of Rights, setting a dangerous precedent that puts all of our liberties at risk.
- A free country can stay free only if citizens have the right to voice their opinions. The flag amendment is the first step in curtailing that right."
