Time to make some lemonade out of these lemons!
If we're going to have to suffer for the mistakes of the criminal capitalists, is there a better time than now to take back our freedoms?

Why not tell them to take their war on drugs and stick it where the sun doesn't shine? It's time to decriminalize these drug possession crimes and to free our people from the prisons.

It's time to tell the employers that they no longer have the right to force anyone to piss in a bottle. If they want to hire someone to do their underpaid jobs, then they will need to find another criteria for hiring them. That should be the first demand in the EFCA. You pay for our labor - you do not own us as individuals.

Maybe we don't need Big Daddy government looking over our shoulders everytime we move or everytime we get behind a wheel? If you see us driving erratically or weaving, pull us over and arrest us but cease your random traffic stops just because you want to intimidate the public.

Maybe it's a good time for the American people to take back their freedoms that have been taken from them a little at a time. Maybe we don't want to take our shoes off at the airports anymore? Maybe we don't want to fear the swarthy terrorists anymore? Maybe we want to take our chances and just be left the fuck alone?
