Should Texas Approve a Confederate Flag License Plate?

9 states already allow it and Texas is set to become the tenth. I'm personally not for it. I see it as being a Anti-American. No bashing, please. Just want to know what you ladies think.

  • I dont see it as anti-american, Its apart of AMERICAN history, so banning it would seem more anti-american.

  • Could careless..here in TN people can purchase a confederate flag plate at Auto Zone ..TN only requires one lic. plate on back of vehicles so some people choose a decorative plate for the front.

  • The more you try to legislate what people can choose the harder they will fight for it. It is a personal choice. All the state cares about is the extra income for the special plates. I personally have the plates with the bluebonnets on it. Som e crazy group is trying to fight for a plate with a rose on.. WHAT? Bluebonnets are the state flower. Confederacy is part of the State history. It is what it is.

  • I don't like to legislate more than is needed, and legislation on this isn't needed.
