This group has adopted the historic Gadsden flag as a symbol of what our group stands for. The words “DONT TREAD ON ME” effectively convey how we feel as freedom loving Americans. The rattlesnake is like the American taxpayer. According to Benjamin Franklin, both give generous warning before they strike. We truly believe that “OUR VENOM IS OUR VOTE.”
Why the Gadsden Flag?
In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit:
"I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretentions of quarrelling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenceless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defence, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal:—Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?"

I think the Poolside 2014 Cadillac ELR ad is terrific. I see it as a response to Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Charles Shumers (D-NY) ridiculous comments trying to cover-up the colossal failure of Obamacare, which resulted in the loss of full-time, well-paid jobs and the reduction of the full-time work week from 40 hours per week to 35 hours. This Healthcare abomination has resulted in the creation of minimum wage, full-time, temporary…

Mr. James Huddleston,
I am responding to a letter (reference Jan 27 th Plymouth-Canton Letters to the Editor) that you wrote attempting to defame Senator Patrick Colbeck. You attempt to infer that the increased state revenue of 1.2 billion was gained at the expense of the poor and the middle-class. Nothing could be more untrue. The increased revenue was…

"that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth"
One hundred fifty years ago, today, the above words were spoken by Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address (see below). It seems to me that we are currently in a struggle no less critical than the struggle of the Civil War. The very essence of our Republic, a government of, by and for the…Continue
