Apathy will be the death of Liberty

So, "Conspirators" - What's up?

Been sorta lackadaisical around here lately.

It looks like most everyone has started to nod-off, and roll over in submission.

Have you not noticed that Obama is still in the process of simultaneously ramming it down your throat while Pelosi sticks it up your ass?

Apathy will be the death of Liberty

Public apathy is more powerful than public opinion. There's more of it. - Jim Boren

History assures us that civilizations decay quite leisurely. - Will Durant

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become prey to the active. The conditions upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt. - John Philpot Curran

As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air - however slight - lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. - William O. Douglas

We must not overlook the role that extremists play. They are the gadflies that keep society from being too complacent. - Abraham Flexner

It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once. - David Hume

We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest -- which will be as long as we can keep the attention of our people alive. If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors would all become wolves. - Thomas Jefferson

I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. - James Madison

The biggest conspiracy has always been the fact that there is no conspiracy. Nobody's out to get you. Nobody gives a shit whether you live or die. There, you feel better now? - Dennis Miller
