Senator Bill Frist demonstrates his ignorance of core American values

Guest posted at Unclaimed Territory, yesterday. It's about Senator Frist looking to amend the Constitution to prohibit gay marriage and flag burning in order to protect traditional core American values. I take the contrary position, believing that these amendments contradict core American foundational values: that the Bill of Rights is meant to limit the government's ability to interfere with an individual's pursuit of happiness, that the Constitution "gives to bigotry no sanction", and that free speech is the bedrock of liberty and democracy.
