I view it as a symbol of fighting for our rights in this country. The civil war was MORE about taxation then slavery. Proof: The emancipation proclamationONLY freed the slaves in the states that seceded from the union the other slaves (and you are an idiot if you think other states didn't have slaves) were STILL slaves. There were higher taxes being charged to goods brought in to the south and exported! There is nothing wrong with the flag except certain hate groups have chosen to use it as their symbol. That doesn't MAKE it theirs and if you believe that you diminish the lives of those MANY MANY MANY men who fought an died for their beliefs!!

Totally stole this but its SO true!!
Hate groups also fly the American flag, quote Biblical passages, and burn crosses to promote their ideas. Should the Bible, American flag, and Crucifix be eradicated because of the fact that hate groups misuse them?
