Read the passage carefully and answer the questions: Some groups want to outlaw burning the flag. They say that people have fought and died for the flag and that citizens of the United States ought to respect that. But I say that respect cannot be leg-islated. Also, most citizens who have served in the military did not fight for the flag, they fought for what the flag represents. Among the things the flag represents is freedom of speech, which includes, I believe, the right for a citizen to express displeasure with the government by burning the flag in protest.
Which of the following is similar to the argument made by the speaker?

A.The rich should not be allowed to buy politicians, so the Congress should enact campaign finance reform.
B.The idea of freedom of religion also means the right not to participate in religion, so mandated school prayer violates freedom of religion.
C.The Constitution guarantees freedom to own property, so taxes should be illegal.
D.Convicted felons should not have their convictions overturned on a technicality.
