I understand that burning the US flag can be viewed as very offensive. Nevertheless, at the heart of American politics is the right to express oneself, no matter what you want to say.

Before starting this debate, I wish to inform that I'm a new user and this is my first debate hence I'm not aware of all the rules.
The flag is the symbol of the nation, Its pride. Burning it is insulting the history of 100 years.

As I said, I understand that burning the US flag is very offensive. However, people have the right to express themselves by the First Amendment even in very offensive ways, such as burning a US flag. That does not mean that they should, just means that they should be able to.

It's legal and never will be illegal. We have a thing called The First Amendment.

I should have instead said that flag burning should not be made illegal. :)
