    Offering any political liscence plate is a bad idea, and offeringany without an opposing choice is wrong. It is not about what the issue is, it is about only one side of it being offered.

    I believe they would... they're representing the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia because the state refused to include them in the "adopt a highway" program (pick up trash on the side of the road in exchange for a roadsign recognizing the group for their efforts).

    The ACLU has a rather simplistic view of "fairness" - about what you'd expect from an 8-year-old.

    Thinking that every one should have the same rights as guaranteed under the constitution, even people who are unpopular, is not "rather simplistic". That is, in fact, the basis of the bill of rights.

    The KKK doesn't have right to adopt a highway.

    Don't see what either of those has to do with this particular license plate. It doesn't exactly say "make abortion illegal" or "keep the government inside of my body"

    As noted and described previously, the premise upon which you base your disagreement is unsound.
    You refuse to accept this; thus, you're being intentionally obtuse.
    I'm sorry that you do not like the truth, but the truth it is.

    They did not so much refuse to offer a countering viewpoint as they did not offer one.
    I haven't seen anything to suggest that the state was asked, or told, to offer a countering view and declined to do so.

    It should be based on supply and demand. What amounts to campaigning is subjective. For instance, most sports teams are funded through often controversial tax referendums.
