Gadsden Flag License Plates: A Nationwide Movement?
Right Side News ^ | 11/16/10 | James Simpson

Posted on 11/16/2010 8:33:43 AM PST by RightSideNews

We are on a roll. The great resurgence of American patriotism fueled by the Tea Party revolt made its voice heard this November 2nd. Not only did the corrupt Democrat Congress suffer a big reversal, but more importantly, Republicans won the largest majority of state houses they have had since 1928, and made a net gain of ten governorships, now holding a majority of 29 to 18....you may soon be able to express your defiance with a Gadsden Flag license plate. As reported first by Right Side News in October, the original idea was the brainchild of Virginia Tea Party group 912 Richmond.....and now is spreading national..

The irony of paying a government tax for a license to advertise opposition to invasive government and taxation is astounding.

This is a NON-revenue sharing plate, big difference, only 10 bucks. The LEFT uses REVENUE sharing plates usually, which cost minimum 25.00 and up

What I want is a clear plastic cover to go over the plate but can be switched on to show an animated flag waving, we have the technology for it.

We intellectually OWN the Stars & Stripes. What idiot would suggest giving that ownership up?

Can you imagine Sam Adams paying the governor of Mass a few shillings for a button to pin on his tri-corner hat to protest King George?

The appropriate analogy would be throwing your license plates into Boston Harbor.

How far we've fallen.

What we need is one clearly identifiable sticker or badge that people can fly to identify their feelings.

Every time a movement starts up there are instantly dozens of variations of the logo or brand and soon the message is lost.

I like the simple yellow "Don't Tread on Me" and would love to see it on millions of cars, shirts and caps ...tens of millions.

That's "the glass is half empty" version.

Here's the 'glass is half full" version:

The irony of forcing the government to manufacture a license to advertise opposition to invasive government and taxation is astounding.

Glad to hear it. Just curious, have you experienced any vandalism (or attempts?)

I'm planning to soon have a flag pole errected in the front yard, just so I can keep the Gadsen flag out of reach of the leftist scum.

I appreciate the message of the Gadsden. But it’s use has been used by the left to portray the Tea Party as somehow anti-patriotic. And there are just enough dumb people in this country to believe that.

I don’t see what can be gained from using it, other than it might make you feel a little better to express your anger.

We have complete intellectual ownership of the Stars & Stripes. We need to nurture and appreciate that ownership, not divide it to something else.

The more public this flag becomes, the better.

That and a license plate conveys more commitment to the cause you're supporting than a bumper sticker and hence carries more weight in public.

A flag is something to gather around. Since both sides of this country use the US flag, the Gadsden flag represents the struggles of our side. It means in no way that the Stars & Bars are something less than they are. They are typically flown together anyway.

No vandalism to date and I work at a higher education institution. Naturally, since I oppose the PC crowd I am viewed as right radical. I am sick of not being able to express my contempt for the PCers,the DC empire, and the obamamites—no more though.

Well, I put a 3.5” x 5” Gadsden Flag on a Magnetic sheet and it sticks right on the back truck - next to my normal state plate.

Looks real nice, can peel it off and put it inside the trunk when I park in questionable areas - and the state gets nothing.

Do the same during election cycles since I go to some sketchy parts of town.

The "Don't Tread on Me" Navy Jack and nine other historical Revolutionary War era flags were featured on stamps back in 1968. You would need 7 of them plus a two cent stamp to pay postage on a first class letter now.

It’s good to see the Navy Jack (which is back in use!) on there, but they need to put Gadsden, Gonzales, and Culpepper in a set!

I think this is just Henrico County taking a shot at Culpeper County (which is what is now-liberal Northern Virginia). After all, The Culpeper Minute Men flag was from Virginia, and Christopher Gadsden was from South Carolina.

Since Indy does not mandate a front plate, I’m going to use the First Navy Jack on the front of my truck.

Although, I had considered using one I want to make out of a picture of the business end of an A-10. The close up of the main gun with the peace sign and the words: Peace through Superior Firepower.

I figure either one will make a libtard’s head explode. :))
