"Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God" - Thomas Jefferson
I felt like it was a good time to revisit some quotes from history that have a special meaning now with what's going on in Washington.

"The only thing necessary for triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
Edmund Burke

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty"
Thomas Jefferson

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
James Madison

"Tyrants have always some slight shade of virtue; they support the laws before destroying them."
Voltaire

“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men."
Samuel Adams

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
Charles de Montesquieu

"A great wave of oppressive tyranny isn't going to strike, but rather a slow seepage of oppressive laws and regulations from within will sink the American dream of liberty.”
George Baumler

“The only tyrannies from which men, women and children are suffering in real life are the tyrannies of minorities.”
Teddy Roosevelt

"Slaves would be tyrants, were the chance theirs."
Victor Hugo

These are just a few that I thought really pertained to today. Feel free to add your own!

Really? No one? I just find it fascinating how most people today can't see what's happening right in front of them. But people hundreds of years ago had the foresight to record these thoughts that are incredibly relevant today. History repeats itself and we have learned nothing from it; apparently the American public failed History 101.

"As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord"
Joshua
Job 12:7) But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
8) Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

Very pertinent as well, as He may be the only chance we have.

The American public is dumbed down, seriously. Not that there's no hope. There's always hope.

He IS the only hope we have, or ever did have, or ever will have.
Everything we see is going to be destroyed, eventually.
