Call me a silly jingo, but why do Conservatives hate our flag?

Last week Conservatives in government turned the crazy knob to 10 and broke it off. Gov. Perry of Texas and Ron Paul both have said secession is a right states have. The Georgia state legislature actually took a vote on it.

Our flag has 50 stars on it representing each state. Why do they want to change the flag by removing their states from our Union?

A lot of good people died during the American Civil War to keep the Union whole. And now these people who call themselves the "real" Americans want to leave.

That's freakin' hilarious.

Additional-I ran across this quote on C&L:

"A man sometimes starts up a patriot, only by disseminating discontent, and propagating reports of secret influence, of dangerous counsels, of violated rights, and encroaching usurpation. This practice is no certain note of patriotism. To instigate the populace with rage beyond the provocation, is to suspend publick happiness, if not to destroy it. He is no lover of his country, that unnecessarily disturbs its peace. Few errours and few faults of government, can justify an appeal to the rabble; who ought not to judge of what they cannot understand, and whose opinions are not propagated by reason, but caught by contagion."
- Samuel Johnson
