    I saw two ironic things in the OP:

    1) the tag says he lives in California and the OP was surprised at the reactions he gets, and;

    2) the note was written by a supposed tolerant Democrat.

    Just my observation.

    No, I don't have bumper stickers but do have a very small sticker on my rear window that denotes me as a combat veteran. I have had one note, and it was from what they said was a young boy, that put the note on my truck thanking me for my service, while I was parked at a Cracker Barrel restaurant. Kinda choked me up a little when I read it. I looked for him, but no one was around. And, the worst thing is, I lost the note.
    If it really was from a young boy, his parents raised him right.

    Very true.

    I guess I didn't too bad either with mine. One day we were at Outback eating dinner, and one of my boys just stood up and walked away. I didn't pay much attention since I thought he was going to the restroom. Later on, an elderly woman walked over to our table and put her hand on my shoulder. She squeezed my shoulder and said "You sure have raised a fine young gentleman." I said "Yes. I think so." She then pointed to a table where her family was sitting with what turned out to be her husband having his 90th birthday. He was wearing a WWII Veteran hat and my son, unknown to me, had walked over, wished him happy birthday and thanked him for his service. The lady said it made her husband cry, since it was the first time anyone outside the family had ever said that to him.

    When you see a veteran, thank them. That's what I've taught my sons. And that's what I try to do myself as well.

    Next time you see veteran, walk over, thank them for their service and just respectfully walk away without waiting for them to say anything in return. If they're like me, it will catch them off guard, since we don't really expect or require it, so don't put them in a position to have to say something back. Just be thankful to them, and that's enough. They'll feel it inside more than you can imagine.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    No. I hate political bumper stickers, all of them. Its an insult to the complexity of the issues.
    That awkward moment when an Obama fan has a "War is Terrorism" bumper sticker.

    I have a Darth Vader bumper sticker.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Ya they are more liberal leaning, so what? Are you going to suggest its only a liberal characteristic to be provoke and vandalize someone's car or leave a note about their bumper sticker?

    Bumper stickers are like tattoos. I don't have either one, but if you are going to have one, make it small and unobtrusive. More than 1 and you are screaming in a lunatic fashion for attention.

    I know someone who somehow still has a "Mondale/Ferraro" sticker. I don't know how, his car is not from 1983. Of course once you get past the how, there's the why...

Attach below are pictures of my bumper stickers and the note on my car from today.

    I am curious, wouldn't it be cheaper to get a Washington State license plate?

    Here is another bumper sticker that you may like:

    You're a good person, Beaudreaux. Well said, and well done by your son.
