What's the best way to stick something to my car without damaging it?

I have a very old political bumper sticker I'd like to affix to my car. (I think the idea of a Prius driving around with a "NIXON/AGNEW" sticker on it is pretty funny.) Unfortunately, the original adhesive has long since lost its stick, and I'd like to affix it in a way that is a) semi-permanent, and b) won't hurt the finish. Any suggestions?

I May Be Slow But I'm Not A Murderer

I drive slowly on our rural roads because of wildlife and people, but this makes other drivers impatient. Should I consider a bumper sticker to acknowledge and explain my behavior, or just try to deal with it? Note: speeding up like a 'normal person', and plowing through baby deer and kids learning to ride bikes, is not an option. [more inside]

meaning of the bumper stickers

I'm trying to read Duncan's essay,"What Fundamentalists Need for Their Salvation". Now I 'd like to know about three phrases that he writes in it, " ....plaster our cars with bumper stickers that say 1,2, and 3, and leave it at that." 1) Mean People Suck 2) No Billionaire Left Behind 3) Who would Jesus Bomb? Are all the phrases popular? What do you want to say by plastering your cars with them?Does it show that you are a cool onlooker or something? I have no idea.

Is there another method of placing bumper stickers?

For school, we are required to have this bumper sticker on either our back bumpers or back windshield. I am highly anti-bumper sticker, so I have not even considered placing the sticker on my bumper, thats out of the question. Is there an "easy" way or method or trick to place the sticker on the inside of my back windshield that can be easily removed?

removing bumper stickers

How difficult is it to get bumper stickers off cars? Are there any tricks? Do the stickers get more difficult to remove the longer they stay on?

I just bought a new car and am considering putting a low-key sticker on for a cause I support. However, I've never put a bumper sticker on a car before, nor have I had to remove one, so my decision on whether or not to do it will depend on how difficult it might be to remove it later.
