The Ballot Box Or The Bullet Box

"This flag has never been meant to replace the national flag. This flag has a specific purpose and it's time has come. To show the politicians and the media that we're ready for a second American revolution. And with that, you know, in America we have a choice of four boxes for political change. We can go to the soap box, the ballot box, or we can go to the jury box. And hopefully we won't have to go to the bullet box." - Jeffrey McQueen, creator of the Tea Party flag.

When asked by a talk radio host if he was advocating for armed revolution, McQueen replied, "Have you seen the ammunition sales for the last twelve months?"

From McQueen's site, U.S. Revolution 2: "Based on the Betsy Ross flag, this new flag represents the coming Second American Revolution. The "II" also represents the Second Amendment, which has keep this country free from tyranny. You'll soon be seeing this flag from sea to shining sea."
