"...eliminate the use of the front license plates required for automobiles" -- Baltimore

Take a look at what else is in there:

I hate politicians, they're arrogant elitists. Nobody ever said Democracy would be easy, neat, clean, and orderly. WE need term limits on all elected officials so we can get away from professional pols who never had a real job in their life and depend on taxpayers for their livilihood.
