I feel that people need to stop and see that the confederate flag is not just a flag, but is a piece of many familys history, and is a belief that many people still have and will have. So why are some people not allowing us to live our heritage, as southern supporters. I think that some people need to see how they would feel if we were trying to get rid of there country or heritage's flag. The flag must stay flying for years and years to come....many people say that the flag is also shows racism, weather it does or doesnt people need to get over it and worry about them self....

KEEP THE FLAG FLYING

Flying the Confederate flag is no different than flying the English flag and supporting a state's right to still be a colony of Great Britain.

I really wouldn't care at all if the federal government decided our Minnesotan flag was unacceptable and had it removed. It's a flag. You don't have your priorities straight if you're focused on the pure representation of the flag rather than the issues it actually symbolizes, which would live on regardless.

I feel that anyone that wants to fly the Confederate flag should be able to just as anyone that wants to fly a state flag, US flag or flag of another country should be able to. As for myself, I am southern and had people back down the line in my family that fought and died under that flag ans some against that flag. Yes it is "just a piece of cloth" but it is what the flag represents that is important and is what a lot of people want to remember. I guess you could make an argument for free speech as a right to fly any flag one wanted to.

are we forgetting that the confederate commited high treason against the USA? That i believe is much different than flying, say the English flag if ur from England (below the US flag of course).

But would it be any different than moving to England and flying Old Glory under Union Jack?  Anyhow, not an argument, just a line of thinking that got me to wondering.
