I have never before in my life been tempted to burn a flag... until this thread.

By allowing the flag to be altered, you are showing a divided nation. It is a sign of the degradation of our patriotic spirit. And what is the quickest way to defeat a nation? To divide the people.
By supporting this flag, you are supporting a divided nation. We should all be able to see where that road goes. To those that say "Freedom of speech?" Of course we are entitled to that. As others have said, if you want to express your support for Obama, then by all means, create a fresh and original flag to do so. But to openly alter our historically adopted symbol of American unity is a shot at the nations spirit from within.

It's not flying above the white house, the post office or any other federal building.
People here svream about civil liberties and personal rights and freedom, but this flying above a private residence is an outrage?
I guess I just don't "Get" the double standard.
If you don't want anyone getting into what you do at your house, why get steamed about what someone else does at theirs?
