The words Benjamin Franklin proposed for the seal of the United States.
I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. […] It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government. - Thomas Jefferson
Sentiments we can all learn from.

"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 own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
Ice-T on Gun Control: “It’s the last form of defense against tyranny, not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.”
THIS IS WHY I LOVE OLD SCHOOL RAP! THE RAPPERS HAD BRAINS!
THIS! EVERYONE OF YOU WATCH THIS NOW!!
Lake County Sheriff’s Office deputies shot and killed a man they assumed was an attempted murder suspect on Sunday, but they now know they shot the wrong man.
In the early morning hours, deputies knocked on 26-year-old Andrew Lee Scott’s door without identifying themselves as law enforcement officers. Scott answered the door with a gun in his hand.
"When we knocked on the door, the door opened and the occupant of that apartment was pointing a gun at deputies and that’s when we opened fire and killed him," Lt. John Herrell said.
Deputies thought they were confronting Jonathan Brown, a man accused of attempted murder. Brown was spotted at the Blueberry Hills Apartment complex and his motorcycle was parked across from Andrew Scott’s front door.
Ok, those deputies know damn well that if you knock on someone’s door at 1:30 in the morning, chances are the person is going to think it is someone who shouldn’t be there.
I’m willing to bet most of these officers would have done the same thing if someone started banging on their door in the middle of the night.
So not only were they at the wrong house (which doesn’t surprise me, what can you expect from the police?) but they shot a man who was simply armed and afraid because some asshole was knocking on his door at an unreasonable hour. I myself would have thought it was a mugger.
They claimed they did not announce themselves for “tactical advantage.” That is bullshit. They killed a man because of this “tactical advantage.”
It is clear the function of police is no longer to protect and serve, but to kill and oppress.
These cops are nothing more than murderers.
Every friend of freedom should be outraged.
What would a communist America look like?
Huh, I think they forgot what else it would look like.
Not to mention this.
Oh yeah. This.
