We need one of these in NH... Although ours already say, “Live Free or Die” which the liberals hate (and want to remove).

It’s probably a pretty fair bet that the dyke in HS will be monitoring the situation and adding names to ‘her list’ of extremist, radical, prolifer, constitutional conservative, terrorists.

Word.

You'll know the revolution was successful when license plates are generic, costing $10/year, and we're debating whether to do away with them entirely.

Thanks for focusing, SERKIT. That's precisely why I won't be ordering one for my vehicle. The DMV system here already automatically alerts police during routine traffic stops that you're a CCW permit holder. Couple that with a “Gadsen” registration, and I suspect there's going to be some tragic encounters in the near future. When the smoke clears, the local papers will be sure to point those things out while describing your residence as a “compound.” ‘Nuff said?

I would love a plate to have “In God We Trust” imprinted on it. That would really state my convictions, and would remind all of what our Forefathers believed was most important when this country was founded.

You're statement is bizarre at best. ...You're suggesting your going to use and *pay* government for a "banner", proclaiming you want smaller government...The over paid corrupt in government must be laughing hysterically.

Reminds me of that Barnum and Baily saying....Or what that guy said in the ape movie....

As awesome as the “Don’t Tread On Me” is as a historic symbol with present day relevance, Virginia already has an even more awesome state flag and seal - “Sic Semper Tyrannus” which is today an even more relevant symbol of what befalls those who attempt to exercise dominion over us.

If you only want to say “leave me alone or you’ll regret it” to your government, by all means go with “Don’t Tread on Me”

If you want to say, “Mess with me and you’re dead”, I’d stick with the Seal of the Old Dominion.

State of Florida Application Requirements for “Don’t Tread on Me” license tags. Excepted from the Florida Dept of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle web page:

“...the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles may not issue any new specialty license plates pursuant to ss. 320.08056 and 320.08058, Florida Statutes, between July 1, 2008 and July 1, 2011.

The basic requirements are: The organization must hire an independent survey company to conduct a survey on Florida registered motor vehicle owners, an application fee of $60,000, a long-term and short-term marketing plan, financial analysis and the design of the license plate. The requirements must be submitted to the Department 90-days before the first day of the legislative session.”

They're fairly common in Indiana, and apparently Florida has one as well.

Didn’t Virginia turn down a faggot plate design recently? Wow, that’s going to stir up a hornet’s nest.

Our older Alaska plates are the same color, I would LOVE to have a plate with my Gadsden flag on it. I have an idea of a license plate clear cover that has the flag on it, but the trick is that its florescent and one of my license plate lights is actually an ultraviolet LED.

Right you are. It must be a rather long list by now. Cripes! Over half the country it seems are extremists! The moderate, rational ones are but a small minority. Who woulda thunk it? ;)

I made a slight but contemporary change to the proposed license plate. While Ben Franklin had it right, a newer phrase comes to mind...
