Good question.

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. … This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy. … Interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans – a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

–Senator Barack Obama, March 2006

Please understand I’m not advocating flag burning of any kind. I honestly don’t see the need. And whether or not protesting against any sort of homosexual agenda is philistinian or not is beside the point. People should be allowed to say stupid things. What gets my goat is when free speech is the rallying cry by one group protesting one thing, but then that same group wants to shut down counter-protests. That’s a double standard. There should be no protected classes. Either we all have the right, or none of us do.
