NO! S.1689 reduces funding to states which offer Confederate Flag license plates

Via Cousin Joel


S.1689 - A bill to amend title 23, United States Code, to reduce the funding available for a State under the national highway performance program and the surface transportation program if the State issues a license plate that contains an image of a flag of the Confederate States of America, including the Battle Flag of the Confederate States of America.


  1. No taxation without representation. Those Senators could easily start a tax rebellion and shooting war. One which would find them (and their families) to be prime targets. The truth is that there isn't a thing the gov could do about it. But to get on their knees begging to stop it.

  2. Brock, this is the problem in America today. All of the sovereign states are too accustomed to sucking on Uncle Sugars teats. Tell 'em to go to hell, we'll stamp our own tags with our own money and, while we're at it, make that money either gold or silver coin not worthless fiat currency and if you try to stop us, we'll have a division of State guard and citizen militia at the border to stop you. We don't need their damned Federal reserve notes.

  3. Any State Affected by this "law" Should Withhold any Federal Sales Taxes collected to compensate for any funds withheld from them by this "law". ;-)

  4. When you take money you are beholden. States need to get some balls and become independent again and stand up to the feds.

    This might FINALLY result in the elimination of the federal portion of the gas tax that they are trying to get extended again. NO more federal gas tax...let the states increase their tax if need be but get the federals out of the gas tax redistribution scheme.
