"A new crop of specialty license plates is going on sale tomorrow, including one with a potent political message. You've seen the yellow "don't tread on me" flag at tea party rallies across the nation. Now you can have the motto -- complete with rattlesnake -- on the back of your car."

Interesting idea.... Any comments from those of you who are Tea Party members, or any members for
that matter? Does your state have something similiar now or in planning?

Will this statement from the article prove to be correct?

"I think the driver of a vehicle with a "don't tread on me" or "come and take it" plate may attract more speeding tickets than the normal driver. Cops love a challenge."

I would not put such identifying marks on my vehicles or, for that matter, in my yard. It's not because I think cops would harass me, though they could misunderstand those stickers as a Freeman movement, they rreally are not. I would be much more worried about the left wing nutters that have Tea Part Derangement Syndrome and would love to do damage to my ride because they didn't agree with me. For the same reason I wouldn't put a Sarah Palin bumper sticker on my car. People go so absolutely ballistic on you. I had it happen during the last election. Someone found my blog that quoted a Charles Krauthammer column and went absolutely ballistic on me. It was just nuts. It's very disturbing that you can't really express your opinion unless it is proper, but it's just a matter of protecting yourself and your property. You may as well paint a target on your car.

BTW, I know this cuts both ways. I am a conservative who lives in an extremely liberal area. Liberals living in an extremely conservative area may very well feel the same way in reverse.

I would buy one if it was made available in Alabama. Now that I think about it... it should be made available in Alabama instead of (or along with) Texas. after all, the Gadsen Flag got its start in Gadsen, AL.

I would sport it. I think it is a shame that the whole tea party idea was kinda hijacked , and they hijacked the Gadsden Flag / symbol with them. It is a great reminder of the American Revolution.
