The Gadsden Flag
Gadsden Flag

At countless Tea Party events across the country, you'll see the Gadsden flag proudly flying among the crowd. The flag is especially well known because of its coiled rattlesnake, bright yellow color, and its defiant motto of “Don’t Tread On Me”. The following was written under the pen name of “American Guesser”, but is thought by many to have been written by Benjamin Franklin after he had seen the paintings on the drums of Marines which later became the Gadsden flag. "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 pretensions of quarreling 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 defenseless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defense, 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?"

The Gadsden flag is the "unofficially” adopted flag of the Tea Party Movement representing one of our primary principals of limited government. Recently a group of retired Marines asked that the Gadsden flag be flown over the state Capitol in Connecticut for Memorial Day, but the Capitol police refused because they claimed that the flag was too “political” to be flown over the capitol. However, it was about 10 years ago in Connecticut that the Rainbow flag representing the gay and lesbian rights movement was flown over the state capitol. Why would the Gadsden flag be considered more “political” than the Rainbow flag? The answer is simple, because many in the Tea Party Movement have adopted the Gadsden flag as a symbol, and the Tea Party is feared by the government. This fear has led to another blatant example of hypocrisy in the government and precisely the reason we must stand firm on the founding principles of the United States Constitution, one of which being equal rights, not special rights. We the people have the right to free speech. We the people have the right to assemble. Therefore as we assemble and exercise our right to free speech, fly the Gadsden flag proudly as a symbol that the government should heed the warning of the people and “Don’t Tread On Me!”
