you know- I dont know why we even pay attention to their playforms. When's the last time a president actually did what they promised when elected to office anyway? 1944?

No I don't. I have no desire to snuggle up with another man but I am against the Goverment telling anyone what is right or wrong where personal feeling are concerned. I don't believe in legislating morals. What you do in the privacy of your own home is not "Big Brothers" buisness. What if they wanted to ban survivalist? I lived with my wife for 23 years before getting married. Alot of people said I was wrong for doing that but I got one that will stick.

Flag Desecration Constitutional Amendment
This shows excellent judgement on Obama's part. Doing something to the flag, which after all is only a SYMBOL and is not anything in physical reality except for some fibers & dye, should be a form of protected political speech, as it has been found so far by the US Supreme Court.

Banning the desecration of a political symbol is completely inconsistent with the 1st amendment of the US constitution.

Doc, you forgot Obama's one piece of Senate legislation that he introduced:

S-2433

Look it up. It makes for very interesting reading when you follow Obama's convoluted trail involving the Millenium Project, the Stockholm Agreement and linking them up to S-2433. If he has his way, Obama will increase your taxes and ban all private ownership of firearms.
