14. Sheehan has been prepared from Day One to go to jail for her convictions.

From the speech she gave just before she set up camp outside Bush's ranch:

Another thing that Iím doing is - - my son was killed in 2004, so Iím not paying my taxes for 2004. If I get a letter from the IRS, Iím gonna say, you know what, this war is illegal; this is why this war is illegal. This war is immoral; this is why this war is immoral. You killed my son for this. I donít owe you anything. And if I live to be a million, I wonít owe you a penny.

And I want them to come after me, because unlike what youíve been doing with the war resistance, I want to put this frickiní war on trial. And I want to say, ďYou give me my son, and Iíll pay your taxes.Ē

. . . . And Henry David Thoreau he went to prison, he refused to pay his poll tax, and Emerson, I call them HT and RW, and RW came to visit HT and said what are you doing here, buddy? And HT said, why arenít you here? This is the only place for a moral person in an immoral world.

Itís up to us, the people, to break immoral laws, and resist. As soon as the leaders of a country lie to you, they have no authority over you. These maniacs have no authority over us. And they might be able to put our bodies in prison, but they canít put our spirits in prison. . . .

The opposite of good is not evil, itís apathy.
