Help with Tea Party Sign

Have chance to visit a friend and probably attend a small Tea Party. I want to carry a pole/stick type sign that reflects 2-A issues, Constitution rights, or over spending, high tax rage etc.

Want it to be simple, not offensive or radical. Something that stands out in a crowd. It will be an attractive colorful hand made sign with hopefully a somewhat unique message.

So I askā€¦ what is your favorite sign or slogan suggestions?

Looking for a message that falls within the definition stated above.

Would like to represent us well... all good suggestions appreciatedā€¦.thanks.

You can bet the News cameras will be searching for anything that can be distorted into looking bad.
I am all in favor of supporting the 2nd,
I heard Beck quote something fron Ghandi
"Truth is the anvil,and non-violence is the hammer."
Please consider the fears of the undecided,and the machine looking for something to twist.
Given the warning of imposters infiltrating to make badpress,a simple arrow with "Infiltrator" might be useful before the camera.
You know,the skin in the game for our Founders ,who signed their names to the Declaration of Independence was a bit like that fellow in China who stood in front of the tank.
Or the Native American who stuck his lance in the ground and tied hs ankle to it and said "It is a good day to die"
It is not about hurting others.It is about being willing to die free.
God Bless Charleton Heston.

Please be reminded that all of the founding fathers were elected. None were self-appointed.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!

"No matter what I write on this sign,
the Marxists are going to cry, 'Racist'!"
No tyrant should ever be allowed to die of natural causes.

I like this. If I had a facebook and you had a facebook and I saw this on your facebook I would click that little button that says "like this". Or if I were running for office I would say that I approve of this message. Alas, I do not have a facebook and I'm not running for office. But I still like this

Nope - political and comments not relevant to L and CR.

PM the OP, if interested. How did we miss the first time?
