Frank McEnulty on Civil Rights

New American Independent Party nominee for President

No constitutional amendment for flag burning

I don't think flag burning is an issue that requires a Constitutional amendment for the simple reason that if no one got overly excited about it, then it wouldn't be any big deal to do it. Flag burners are like little children trying to do something bad to get their parents' attention. If a parent ignores the behavior, the child stops. Same with flag burning. Aren't there more important things to worry about than whether or not someone burns a flag now and then?

A: No.

Q: Do you support affirmative action in public college admissions?
