Flag Burning is intentionally burning and/ or mutilating a flag as an act of political protest. This act has been a hot topic in our country's history since the Federal Flag desecration in 1968, but recently has made its way back into the news. In the past two years with the campaign, election, and the election outcome many protesters have went back to using flag burning as a way to get there points across. After President Elect Trump’s victory was announced students at American University, in Washington D.C, burned flags as a form of protest. These students used matches to burn flags while yelling “This is a representation of America, we are going up in flames” Students participating through this thought  their acts were going lead to a revolution. However, There was an equal amount of students protesting against the burning saying it was a hate act. Also this kind of protest has been used in protests concerning race and gender equality. So, revolution or hate act?
Personally, I believe it should be illegal. To me it is an insulting act towards our country and a slap in the face to those who have served and died to protect our country. Many people try to say it is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech? Hmm. How do they think they got that freedom? They have that freedom because of the people who fought for our freedom and for what the flag stands for. Show a little respect. Saying it's ok to burn a flag because freedom of speech is like saying it was ok for the KKK to burn crosses in victims yards and ok for some to burn a church down to get their point across. No! It's not ok they are all acts of hate in my eyes. Pro-flag burning  people use freedom of speech and the 1st amendment as to why it is ok for them to do it. That is just a copout. Some also say it is a political issue not a constitutional issue.

This has been a controversial issue between morals and constitutional rights. In 1989 the Supreme Court ruled that  the desecration of the flag is protected by freedom of speech. Also Congress has refused to pass a law against flag burning due to the constitution and the Supreme Court ruling. Many government employees admit that these decisions were made not based on personal or moral beliefs but on what is right for americans based on the constitution. President Elect Trump has not held back on his opinion on this issue. He has tweeted that it should be illegal, a criminal act, and should be punished by revoking someone's citizenship. Trump also hopes to pass a law against flag burning when he get into office. Whether you agree or not, it is safe to say this is going to continue to be a issue in our country.

Sanctuary Cities are cities were illegal immigrants can live in peace and don't have to worry about being caught by the police and or government because no one will turn them in. This is wrong in my opinion because its against Federal Law. Helping an immigrant that is here illegally is like hiding a fugitive from the law. They're tons of immigrants that have gotten their papers the right way so they can be here legally and have worked hard to get were they are. They even have spent years away from their family so they can earn enough money to bring them over. Why should these people just get away with not being legal and your helping them. What makes it worse is that they just come over here and then get to live in peace and not really working for their freedom. In saying this I believe that the supreme court should rule these cities to be illegal and if caught participating in this action then you should be fined or arrested.

I say that all of the things Trump wants to pass when he gets into office is great. However, I don't really agree with getting rid of the Pairs Agreement because I do believe that globe worming is an issue and we need to do anything we can to help control the situation. However, I do like that he wants to get rid of Obama Care because I think the whole thing is crap and it was just a way for Obama to look good for a hot minute. Also I believe that Obama Care is costing Americans more money then it is helping them save money.

I think the Electoral College is a joke and it solves nothing. This just allows politicians to pick the countries leader based on who's going to kiss their shoes. They obviously haven't done a very good job over the years, I mean just look at our debt and relationships with other countries. The people know what they need and I will admit that the politicians know more political wise what our country needs, but the people get no say. I believe the popular vote is the way to go when electing a president of the United States. This would allow the people to have a say and the politicians get a say as well. The only thing that I would add to the popular vote would be that each state senate vote would be worth two so the politicians have more of a say on the political side but not very much say.

I think the Balancing Budget Amendment should be passed as the 28th Amendment. Doing this would help help with our huge debt. This would also help keep us from going into debt again. Also keeping a balance budget could allow us to lower taxes and could help the economy, also could raise house hold income in the lower and middle classes. Doing this will allow us to have more money to put into military programs and educational programs. Now that could cause the unemployment to go down and help improve our military strength. A stronger balance makes a stronger America.

The "In God we Trust" statement on money, well my view is if you don't like it then you can get the hell out of America. I'm sorry but that is how I feel about it. It's our currency for our country and you chose to live here, so why should we have to change our currency for you. Also why do people that are against this even care, it is money you buy toilet paper and soap with it why should you care if it is on it. Did your parents not give you enough attention so you decided "Oh I'm going to wait till I'm a 40 years old with nothing great in my life but my religion, then I'm going to fuel and start a country wide argument about words on money", why should you care. The reason I care is because I'm tired of people's lack of common sense and people complaining about stupid crap, grow up. Another thing is the Hobby Lobby crap. OH MY GOD PEOPLE, why should it matter that a christian owned company doesn't want to provide birth control to their employees as medical care. It is their company and not providing this is against what they believe and they are still providing medical care but just not this. Also you can get birth care products other ways and from other places. I think the Supreme Court should just leave the money the why it is and also just leave Hobby Lobby alone too.

I feel like that the death penalty, solitary confinement, and psychological torture are OK to a point. People that are mass murderers should be put on death penalty because obviously if they didn't have enough constipation and commonsense to not kill a crap load of people then how is rotting in jail going to change that. Terrorist should be tortured for information and get treated the way they do for what they did, you mess with us and get caught you are going to get the horns. I also think that solitary confinement is OK also to a point. Like I don't believe that anyone under 18 should be put in there but if you are over that and you did something you shouldn't of, then you deserve it. They obviously made it for a reason and they have rules to keep inmates in line and if you cross them, then there has to be consequences. The psychological part I think should be used for the terrorist and people apart of terrorist crimes because this helps us get the information we need to help prevent or end an terrorist act.
