Destroying the substance to protect a symbol

Dear Senator,
I am writing in opposition to the flag burning Amendment. To protect a symbol of freedom by gutting those very freedoms is an insult to the American Constitution. The First Amendment is the cornerstone on which all our other freedoms are built. Do not help to weaken that cornerstone. You are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution, a Constitution which enshrines the right to unpopular opinions and peaceable protest. Please remember your oath.
Thank you,
Plain Foolish
