Criminalize the burning or intentional damage of the US Flag.
The US flag stands for everything we are in this country. It was built on the fundamentals of hard work, loyalty, and respect for one another. With recent events, many have taken to damaging or burning of the flag in protest, thinking its a guarantee that they can hide behind the ruling of Texas vs. Johnson, where it was ruled that burning the flag is a symbol of free speech. This is not a form of freedom of speech, this is an act of desecration and disrespect to our country. Blood, sweat and tears have been spilled over this symbolic flag and it should be a crime to do anything to it other than let if fly free and respect it for what it means. This petition, with your signature, will be sent to congress to overthrow the ruling of Texas vs. Johnson case and make a legal law stating punishment for any intentional damage to it. We owe it to our forefathers, our military, and ourselves.
