This is a discussion on Gadsden Flag History.... within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I am often asked the meaning of the flag and flag emblems that are on my vehicles and residence. I thought I would print this ...

Yeah, Marines don't like it when someone tries to tread on us.

I am a fan of the Gadsen flag and what it stands for as well. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for posting this!
I too often get asked by people that see the back window of my truck (avatar). "Whats that snake on the back of your truck, I dont get it?"
Ohhh, thats just the Gadsden flag, a part of your country's history and a perfect symbol of the American spirit that led to the freedoms you possess today. No big deal right?
Most associate it with the modern Tea Pary Movement, which is fine by me, even thogh I lean a little more to the right than that.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
