"First they came for the lemonade stands..."

Chris | InformationLiberation

I thought this was quite an apropos comment on the Gibson Guitar raid.
First they came for the lemonade stand, and I didn't say anything, because I didn't have a lemonade stand.
Then they came for the organic foods and raw milk, and I didn't say anything, because I didn't have organic foods and raw milk.
Then they came for the vitamins, and I didn't say anything, because I didn't have any vitamins.
Then they started shutting down old coal power plants and I didn't say anything, because my electricity comes from wind turbines.
Then they came for the my neighbor's house and claimed eminent domain, but I didn't say anything, since my house is just fine.
Then they came for the gold, and I didn't say anything, because I had no gold.
Then they came for the guns, and I didn't say anything, because I had no guns.
In the end, they came for me and no one was left able to speak for me.

Wake up America, this government is not our government, it is a monster. Today is Gibson guitars, tomorrow is your business or you job.
All I would add is first they came for your taxes, from that point on, all else follows.

The problem w/ the constitution is it gives the government the power to tax, you can't have an organization dedicated to the protection of private property which is based in wealth expropriation (taxation). It was a fatal flaw in the constitution.

68195 Sick gov't attacking/stealing from the people, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of govít violations of our rights:
They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like ďAmerica Deceived IIĒ and censoring the internet.
They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

The point is we are trying to head off another holocaust. There is nothing more special about your holocaust then any of the many others that have and will likely happen. Stop being so bigoted and join the whole human race. You sound like an arrogant prig. We need solidarity. Thank you for taking my sharp criticism and now that we can stand together and stop the attempt at a new dictatorship, by just saying "NO!" Mass non cooperation can be a beautiful thing. :)

63112 well said.. very well said. They also came for our education, families, morality but we didn't say anything because too many good people remain silent.

7115 The two enimes of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. Thomas Jefferson "We must not let our rulers load us down with perpetual debt. Thomas Jefferson If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects was never was and what will never be... if we are to guard against ignorance and remainfree, it is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed. Thomas Jefferson. Unlike congress today, our founders weren't concerned about keeping their jobs.

64129 What needs to be done with this goverment is bring it back to the people like our forefather's intended. All 564 of them there now need to go. These elected officials work for the people not corporations but the latter is true. They are all bought and paid for by the time they reach office. Bring them back to earth...they do not need special health insurance, 100% salary pensions and special treatment from the laws they make over us. We, the American people, need to demand equality, same treatment. After all who is paying for all those "specials" that we do not get. American's need to be able to put into office whom they want not the electoral college's decision. Straight vote...counts as one. And 4 year terms are plenty...Many of the Fathers warnings are now coming to fruition. Jefferson as well as many others. This government is as corrupt as any other, if not worse.
The poem is about the holocaust that did happen. Who ever you are you are very uneducated in that realm or you would not have wriiten what you did. Beware, do your homework don't just believe.
