Why do those Tea Party people have that snake flag? You may have heard this too. Well I'll tell you.*[The American Revolutionary period was a time of intense (but controlled) individualism - when self-directing (responsible individuals) again and again decided for themselves what they should do. They did it without anyone else to give them an assignment or supervise them in carring it out.] Unlike todays flash mob mentality of organizer directed Occupiers.
One of the fledgling Nation's staunchest supporters, Benjamin Franklin, published an article in 1775, through his Pennsylvania Gazette, calling for Colonists to return the British practice of sending convicts to America by shipping "A cargo of rattlesnakes" back to them. From that time on the rattlsnake took it's place in the history of the New Nation and it's banners. Eventually it settled on a yellow background on top of the now famous words (which are pretty self explanitory) "DONT TREAD ON ME". I myself wear my yellow cap with this emblem on it as I write these words.
You can say what you like about this Nation (and that's the point) but try to take away that right and you'll find yourself treading on rattlesnakes.
*[Encyclopedia Brittannica.]
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
