THE DAY
(if you were never a special person, you are a special person  now)
(if you can call an American a 'Day' and take away his civil rights,
what makes you think 'Night' will be any different?)

THE CONSTITUTION DIED


You don't need nuclear weapons to destroy America.  All you have to do is say, "These people are different, American Law does not apply to them."

The Constitution Of The United States
The Constitution Of Texas

those are Walls Against Tyranny



"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."
 ~ Albert Camus

“Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).”
~ Ayn Rand

"Crime is crime, aggression against rights is aggression, no matter how many citizens agree to the oppression.  There is nothing sacrosanct about the majority; the lynch mob, too, is the majority in its own domain."
~ Murray Rothbard

The Lynch-Mob Mentality - At least Salem witch hunters gave pretenses of trials before burning their fellow citizens at the stake.
Article by Glenn Greenwald.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences."
   ~ C. S. Lewis
