North Charleston has now taken the battle a step further– by placing the historic Gadsden Flag atop the city hall building.
The issue is that we are a smaller government and we are not unlike what was going on in the Revolutionary War where you had bigger government stepping on smaller government. They need to understand is that we are a wonderful community. We are pro-business, we’re pro-port, but we are not going to allow us to be trampled on for the benefit of everybody in the rest of the state.
We’re like that rattlesnake, we’re not going to mess with you unless you step on us. If you step on me, then I’m going to bite.
The city issued a letter of intent to sue last month, but it is required to wait 60 days after sending the letter to sue in federal court.
The Gadsden Flag also sits on the desk of some of the state lawmakers that the city is fighting in this matter, denoting their Tea Party affiliation. Many of the state’s Tea Parties have also adopted this flag their symbol.
