No Confederate flag on Texas license plates! (Petition)

Below is an email from Mark Corcoran of  Progress Texas, who created a petition at SignOn.org that is getting a lot of  attention and may be of interest to people in your area. If you have concerns or  feedback about this petition, click here.


Dear Texas MoveOn member,

The Sons of Confederate Veterans want to display the Confederate flag on Texas license plates. You can do something to stop that right now.

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles must decide whether to allow this racist relic to appear on Texas license plates, but the TXDMV board is currently deadlocked with a tie vote of 4 to 4.

Governor Rick Perry must now appoint a ninth member who will be the deciding vote on this controversial issue.

Gov. Perry has a long history of promoting secession and pandering to the tea party. But with all eyes nationwide on Gov. Perry’s political future, our voices can really make a difference. That’s why I created a petition to Gov. Perry on SignOn.org which says:

“The Confederate flag is offensive to millions of Texans. Please appoint a new TXDMV board member who will not support the display of this hurtful and controversial image on our license plates.”

Will you sign the petition? Click here to add your name, and then pass it along to your friends:

Thanks!

  1. I do not understand how we even have time to worry about promoting the confederate flag when there are more important issues like creating jobs. Its not Rick Perry’s fault the issue came up – its the people who want the confederate flag recognized. How can those people push their issue in Perry’s face when there are more important matters like housing the homeless, medical programs for children, and creating jobs. I think that the Sons of the Confederate Veterans need to back down and let our government focus on main issues.
