Quotes About Tyranny and the Coming Police State

A lot of people today believe that the US is entering or is in a police state. This view is shared by both the left and the right. The right knows that it is happening and is having its usually knee jerk reaction and the left know why it is happening and who is behind it and  but all the left is doing is running its collective mouth and bitching and pointing fingers. The right wants to point guns but they will end up shooting the wrong targets. 

 Do you think that America is or is becoming a police state?  If so, what do you think should be done about it?

Here are some famous quotes about tyranny.

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
― James Madison

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
― Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

“Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and opressions of the body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“Whatever crushes individuality is despotism.”
― John Stuart Mill

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest - Diderot -

“The tyrant is a child of Pride
Who drinks from his sickening cup
Recklessness and vanity,
Until from his high crest headlong
He plummets to the dust of hope.”
― Sophocles, Oedipus Rex

“Tyranny anywhere is a threat to freedom everywhere.”
― Alex Storozynski, The Peasant Prince: and the Age of Revolution

Eugene Victor Debs
“In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People."

(Canton, OH, Anti-War Speech, June 16, 1918)”
Eugene Victor Debs, Voices of a People's History of the United States“When one with honeyed words but evil mind
Persuades the mob, great woes befall the state.”
Euripides, Orestes

  1. If government is a servant, it only stays one as long as the master can dismiss it. The trouble is we're all to dependent on it to have that kind of power, and not just the people the neo-cons want off the welfare system. For examples: Golden Corral is cheap because of farm subsidies. Then there's that whole scooter store scandal, defrauding Medicare for scooters.
    How revolutionary can people be if they cannot take care of themselves?

  2. That Scooter Store thing pissed me off because now it will be even tougher to get scooters now that they can no longer bribe doctors.

  3. This is a toρiс that's close to my heart... Thank you! Where are your contact details though?
