"Don't Tread on Me" was a phrase that appeared on one of the very first flags used by the American colonists during the Revolutionary War. It is also gaining a lot of use again in modern day as a conservative/libertarian protest symbol. Here is a link to the history of the Gadsden Flag, with an image...which will also give you an idea why I would associate the phrase with a Cardassian.

Appropriate. By the way, I suppose now's a good time to say, to all you Americans posting here, happy Independence Day!
