Getting Ready for November

Miss me?

Some good quotes to ponder as we prepare for the November election. Sentient beings, take note. Repubs, you should pay attention too. :-)

“Those who are willing to trade freedom for security
deserve neither freedom nor security.” – Benjamin Franklin


“Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism.” - Thomas Jefferson


“To stand in silence when they should be protesting
makes cowards out of men.” – A
braham Lincoln


“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the
people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing
government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or
exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.” -
 Abraham Lincoln


“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and
belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or
acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends
forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different
centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down
the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – R
obert F
. Kennedy


“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an
invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to
the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance
between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the
statesmanship of the day.” - 


“Strange times are these in which we live when old and
young are taught in falsehoods school. And the one man that dares to tell the
truth is called at once a lunatic and fool” – P


“The people are the masters of both Congress and the
courts, not to overthrow Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert
it” - 


The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man
who is able to think things out for himself… Almost inevitably, he comes to
the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and
intolerable.” - 


“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make
violent revolution inevitable.” - 
 John F.


“Dictatorships start wars because they need external
enemies to exert internal control over their own people.” – R


“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a
flag and carrying a cross”. – S
inclair Lewis. “It Cant happen Here”.


“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of
fear, kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave
national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some
monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly
rally behind it.” – G
eneral Douglas Macarthur, 1957


“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as
pawns for foreign policy.” – H
enry Kissinger

easier…just as long as I’m the dictator” -
