    "Many times we think someone is ranting, but they're actually speaking with conviction, and everyone has just forgotten the sound of real Passion. We're so afraid of absolutes and a strong gut and digging in your heels that we dismiss the powerful voice of a Lonely fighter. Listen for quiet strength, for humble confidence. It's not often someone will stand for what is Right, what is True, what is Pure. More often we're afraid to admit we're afraid, because the Truth is so blinding in a Dark world."

YOU CAN SIT BACK AND WATCH ALL OF YOUR RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY OR FIGHT BACK

We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution.

It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
