Oh, I've thought of another Voter Criteria, Ethnicity... After all, if I want to know what Asian People think about Jackie Chan, I don't want to have to limit it to just China or Japan...

After reviewing the Results of this poll, I felt I must come back here and add more to my previous post...

My fellow Americans,

To be a Patriot, or Patriotic, has nothing to do with the American Flag.

pa·tri·ot ~ noun

  1. a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.

  2. a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, esp. of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.

In fact, it doesn't even have anything to do with supporting the Government. Being a Patriot is about supporting, and defending, your Country, and Countrymen (i.e. your neighbors, mailman, etc.) from all threats, foreign and DOMESTIC. What a Patriot supports are the ideals, and morals, laid forth for us by our Forefathers in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A true patriot even stands up to the government when it wrongs the people, instead of just accepting it.

As someone who considers themself a Patriot, I find that the results of this poll disturb me greatly, because it is suggestive that most people think that the American Flag is something to worship, a defining symbol of America, which it's not. Remember, the American Flag is ONLY a symbol which represents our country to the world, it has nothing to do with anything, and could be changed tomorrow if it was so desired.

Become a Patriot, become empowered to Protect our nation, because I (and hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of other Americans) feel that our country currently faces a grave threat, and it's not Al Qaeda. I will not go into the details here, but I will say that your country needs you now, more than you know.

Well, I consider myself a Patriot, and I know a thing or two about America, so I will put this here for anyone who follows benefit...

Burning the American Flag should never be Illegalized, for several reasons. First being that whenever an American Flag touches the ground, you are SUPPOSED to burn it, because it has become soiled. That goes back a long way, and is a tradition created during war. Why do you think at a Veteran's funeral the Flag bearers are extra careful and fold the flag as it comes off of the flag pole?

Second, to illegalize burning the American Flag would violate ones right to Free Speech, being as one could burn the American Flag in Protest of something the Government is doing.

And Third, and maybe the most important reason (this is a debate that should be handled somwhere besides here) is because Worship of One's Nations Flag is a Fascist Ideal, in fact one of the 14 defining charachteristics of a Fascist State. And being that this country is SUPPOSED to be a Democratic Republic, a "free" country, illegalizing the burning of the American Flag would be instituting yet another Fascist Ideal in America.

So in summation, burning the American Flag is NEVER a bad thing.

I've made a few polls here and I believe my poll results have been skewed. In other words, I think people who didn't match the target audience (the particular people I want answers from) filled out my poll, and thus corrupted the results of my poll because the results no longer accurately depict the target audience.

I have a suggestion on how this could be corrected, and prevent it happening to anyone's polls anymore.

In "Your Account -> Update your user profile" you could add the following:

  • Age: (DDM)
  • Location: Country: (DDM) State: (DDM based on Country) City: (DDM based on State)
  • Sex: (RBS) Male / Female
  • Sexual Orientation: (RBS) Straight / Gay / Bi
  • Political Affiliation: (DDM)

DDM = Drop Down Menu RBS = Radio Button Selection

And then on the "Create New Poll" page you could add an "Advanced Options" link which would add pollee criteria. For exmple, if you want your poll to be for Men from Arkansas who are over 18, you could set it so that only Men from Arkansas who are over 18 could take the poll, for everyone else it would just load a page stating "Oops! You don't match the criteria for this poll!" and have an automated poll suggestion pointing them towards similar polls.

This would be a great feature for the site and I hope you'll consider it.
