They get run down." -Aneurin Bevan, M.P. "Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul." -Thomas Paine "No matter how cynical you get, it's almost impossible to keep up." -Lily Tomlin "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man." -George Bernard Shaw "Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." -President John Quincy Adams "Every four years, the naive half who vote are encouraged to believe that if we can elect a really nice man or woman President, everything will be all right. But it won't be. Any individual who is able to raise $25 million to be considered presidential is not going to be much use to the people at large. He will represent oil, or aerospace, or banking, or whatever moneyed entities are paying for him. Certainly he will never represent the people of the country, and they know it. Hence, the sense of despair throughout the land as incomes fall, businesses fail, and there is no redress." -Gore Vidal "Unfortunately, you can't vote the rascals out, because you never voted them in, in the first place." -Noam Chomsky "In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." -George Orwell "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King, Jr. "My favorite sex fantasy is becoming president, so I can do it to two hundred million people at once." -Gore Vidal "A criminal is a person with predatory instincts without sufficient capital to form a corporation." -Clarence Darrow "It is only in folk tales, children's stories, and the journals of intellectual opinion that power is used wisely and well to destroy evil. The real world teaches very different lessons, and it takes willful and dedicated ignorance to fail to perceive them." -Noam Chomsky "If one meets a powerful person, ask them five questions: 'What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?' If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system." -Tony Benn, M.P. "I'll tell you what 'anti-American' is. It's what governments and their vested interested call those who honor America by objecting to war and the theft of resources and believing in all of humanity. There are millions of these anti-Americans in the United States. They are ordinary people who belong to no elite and who judge their government in moral terms, though they would call it common decency. They are not vain. They are the people with a wakeful conscience, the best of America's citizens." -Martha Gellhorn "The police state that politicians are building isn't some cartoony reproduction of Nazi Germany; it's an America of the future that looks much like the United States of today, but works as if the whole country has been turned into an airport security checkpoint. It'll be like Mexico, with everybody averting their eyes as the cops stroll by, but with better plumbing. It's a country that has a familiar flag, regular elections, and outraged civil liberties columnists, but where it's easier than ever to get yourself arrested for things that our parents wouldn't have considered crimes -- or just for annoying the wrong people. Yes, America is becoming a police state. But unless you pay attention, you might not notice until it's too late." -J.D. Tuccile
