The Coffee Party USA, which has 335,482 supporters on Facebook (up from 334,829 last Friday night), not only produces original content and calls for action and  highlights news stories about issues important to the movement, Coffee Party USA posts at least one quote relevant to democracy in America on its Facebook page.

Join me, the maintainer of the Coffee Party USA community on LiveJournal, over the fold for this week's collection of quotes of the day.

"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - George Orwell

"Enlighten the people, generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day." ~ Thomas Jefferson

"The only title in our democracy superior to that of President is the title of citizen." - Louis Brandeis

"I think that people want peace so much that one of these days govt had better get out of their way and let them have it." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." - Emma Lazarus

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people." - Theodore Roosevelt

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
