    No.

    The Confederate flag was actually a war flag for the South to differentiate themselves from the North. In fact they had many flags that were war flags but that was the most popular one. Most people don't know that so I expect thumbs down.

    At the First Battle of Manassas, the similarity between the Stars and Bars and the Stars and Stripes caused confusion and military problems. Regiments carried flags to help commanders observe and assess battles in the warfare of the era. At a distance, the two national flags were hard to tell apart. In addition, Confederate regiments carried many other flags, which added to the possibility of confusion.

    Of course not.

    It is a symbol of the south, like a state flag is the symbol of a state. Besides, if the government lets us BURN the US flag, then we should be able to fly the Confederate flag.

    No. People should be able to act the fool if they want as long as they are not harming others. Hurt feelings don't count.

    I once saw the stars and bars with a moose superimposed over it. Not sure what that meant, but whoever was flying it was an idiot.

    Never. If the want to ban one, get rid of the rainbow flag and ban the Mexican one from being flown in America.

    No, but anyone who flies the flag of states that fought against the U.S. is obviously UnAmerican
