When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.
Best. Shirt. Ever.

I just bought a shirt with those words on it. It has a big raised red fist on it.

It's my new sig. Whatdaya think? Agree?

6. I think we need a national boycott
of all major businesses that donate to the GOP. I seriously thinking of starting a website dedicated to this. There are several lists out there on the net but I want to do something that's well organized and gets people's attention. Something with Flash animations, alternative shopping lists, news, the works.

Then, we just need to take to the streets more. If nothing else, it shows the world and the rest of America that there's a serious resistance movement in this country. And as a last resort, I'm willing to consider a tax rebellion, in which every liberal in the nation refuses to pay their taxes. This last one could get real messy though and I see it only as a last resort. But it may come down to that. Our right to vote had been taken away, we may need to take some drastic measures to get it back.

8. I'm already boycotting businesses that donate to the GOP
and keeping more of my money for myself instead of feeding the beast.

7. Thank you so much!
I was wondering, and the shirt doesn't attribute the quote to anyone. I'll change my sig to reflect that.

5. Are you ready to spend 20 years in solitary confinement?
That's what it took.

12. It would be hard to put 50 million of us in jail,
We are the ones doing all the day to day work that keeps this country going!

9. Nice
These wont fit on a shirt but have meaning for me:

The reasonable man adapts to his surroundings,
The unreasonable man attempts to change his surroundings to suit himself;
all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
GB Shaw

I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act.
I do believe in a fate that falls on men unless they act.
GK Chesterton
