Although the Senate has voted to oppose the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prevent flag burning as a form of political protest, it is possible that another vote could be taken this year before the November election.  If enough voters demand that the vote occur again and put pressure on some the Senators who voted against it, it could happen.  Senators do occasionally respond to the will of the people when the people speak out.   With that in mind, I am publishing a petition to the United States Senate.  If you want the change, let your voice be heard.  After all, you do have freedom of speech.  You do have the freedom to petition the government.

The majority leader of the Senate is:

Senator William Frist
509 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington D.C. 20510

The Washington D.C. mailing address for each Senator can also be found at  The addresses for the three Republican Senators who opposed the Constitutional Amendment are:

Senator Mitch McConnell
361-A Russell Senate Office Building
Washington D.C. 20510

Senator Lincoln Chafee
141-A Russell Senate Office building
Washington D.C. 20510

Senator Robert Bennett
431 Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington D.C. 20510

Petition to the United States Senate

The First Amendment’s freedom of speech clause does not permit the burning of the United States flag.  An out of control Supreme Court determined that flags could be burned in political protest.  Congress including the Senate has the responsibility to reverse such an obscene decision.  The Constitution provides the correct method to amend the Constitution.  Please use the prescribed process to reverse the error of the Supreme Court.  The will of the majority of the citizens of this country is that the United States flag, as a symbol for our nation, not be trivialized by a power hungry United States Supreme Court.
