(TPNN) – The Gadsden flag has become synonymous with the Tea Party movement. Attend any Tea Party rally around the country and you will see the flag flying high in the air. Seven states now offer car owners the opportunity to send the ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ message every day as they drive around town.
Texas was the first state to approve the Gadsden flag based specialty license plate. The states of Virginia, Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma, and South Carolina soon followed. Now, you can add Alabama to the ranks of those states where those who support the Tea Party principles of a constitutionally limited government, lower taxes, personal responsibility and free markets can express their beliefs on a daily basis for everyone to see.
Now, you can add Alabama to the list of states that offer the Gadsden flag. While the license plate has been approved, 1,000 pre-orders are required by the State Revenue Department in order for the actual plate to be manufactured. The Foundation for Moral Law, a Christian conservative group founded by Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is encouraging people to pre-order tags.
While the cost of the specialty license varies in each state, in Alabama, drivers will pay an extra $50 for the plate. $41.25 will go to the Foundation for Moral Law which will use the money for their daily operations in defending the Alabama and United States Constitutions.
