    Yeah, it sure is. Hell with all that extra revenue the state might have gotten from the sales of the these plates. Who needs that, right?

    Let's put political correctness ahead of everything, from hear on out.

    Those who fail to study history are doomed to repeat it.

    That's all fine and dandy, but you lost. Your flag dies with the resistance. As the winning faction, and thus the sovereign, it is our right to rebuke all displays of the flag which once dared to challenge Northern superiority (hahahah).

    But seriously, South did lose, the federal government could easily and within their rightful power ban the Confederate flag from flying on any government building/property in the US along with State issued devices such as Drivers License or License Plate. Though in this case it was the Texas DMV which struck it down.

    Really? The sun never set on the British Empire. I'm sure there were other places much worse than ourselves...or if not "much worse", more widespread and efficient.

    Still if we had to rise in rebellion against the Government, I would not choose the old Confederate Flag to wave. A new symbol would have to be created.

    Also, it's not the "Dixie flag". It's the Confederate Battle Flag.

    The British flag is also a part of the history of our country, should we fly that too?

    Why should someone be able to put that political view on a license plate, but not others? Heck, don't you think "Obama 2012" plates would make some revenue somewhere?

    If you want to express your political views, buy a bumper sticker. License plates aren't the place.

    Texas used to be part of Mexico, how about those plates? Lousiana was French, and Alaska and Hawaii were Russian. Where are those plates?
