Tyranny Is Over!

So I decided to make a new version of this poster I've been working on. It's based on John and Yoko's "War is Over" Poster. I posted my original version a couple of weeks ago but I could not let it go and had to finish it. I hope you enjoy it.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
e.e. cummings

Awesome except one thing...

I really like this art. I would certainly like to share it. That said, why have you included a pump jack? Oil is one of the few things that people in this country actually produce. It's one of the only things we remain competitive with the world. If you replaced the pump jack with a symbol that doesn't represent free market ideals, such as a dollar bill, it would be fantastic. Great work though!!


It's been the motive for many innocent deaths.

I might add, "even when it

I might add, "even when it wasn't the true motive". Statists like Newt Gingrich rally with lines like "Never bow to a Saudi King", even though most of our oil comes from elsewhere. I still know people that think we went to Iraq for oil, and that that was 'worth it'.

So are a lot of other things...

So are a lot of other things that are traded "freely" including and especially gold. Like I said, it's cool and artistic, but it has more of an OWS feel than a "freedom" feel. Ron Paul has tremendous numbers of blue collar supporters in oil fields all across the country.


put the oil in because I see petroleum as a source of tyranny because there are so many other options for energy and plastic-like products but we really only get to have the one choice.

Some of the other fuel choices I like: bio diesel, you can run your car on old fry oil or pretty much any oil of any kind, hemp which is a great fuel source and can replace many plastics, hydrogen injection motors, there are fuel cells the size of an ac unit that can power an entire home.

I don't really have a problem with maintaining oil production, I just wish we had a viable choice for other products that can accomplish the same things.

As for the men and women that work in the oil industry, I'm sure their talents could be used in other energy endeavors if they ever became mainstreamed or viable for the general consumer.

It was not my attempt to bash oil industry workers with that icon.

I really like it

It would go great on a t-shirt.


a definite possibility. How many people would order one? I think I'd only do it if there are enough people interested.

Also, how much would people be willing to spend on it including shipping?

How much would you charge?

I'd be interested in two at the right price.

Colchester, New London County, Connecticut


I've had shirts done in the past and I used this site http://www.jakprints.com

On their site the cost would be $7.10 per shirt with a minimum order of 24 shirts plus a set-up fee.

If there aren't many takers you could do direct to garment printing which is going to cost around $20 each.

If anyone knows an inexpensive screen printer let me know!! I'm interested in this becoming a shirt too.

I am interested

how much federal reserve notes do you need?

I can't believe I made the front page of the DP. :)

I'm really happy everyone likes it.

maybe its time to totally destroy all my work on earth . the sadness my creation brings to me outdoes the good . but let me make it clear to all the wicked ,it is not you that i smite but the good, to free them from your inhumane tyranny *................ thoughts of a god * and nonesense


Very much in the spirit of John Lennon. I wonder what would be going on in his mind if he were alive to see these days. Perhaps not a Ron Paul supporter, but certainly still an anti-war activist.

I'd like...

to think John would support our movement (wishful thinking maybe). I know that a lot of people saw him as a leftist, but I think if he were still alive today and saw what is happening now, he'd speak out for the only peace candidate. Also after he was being watched by the government and had to go through all those immigration proceedings he'd be much more receptive to our ideals. I know he had to be very passionate about freedom.

But since his life was sadly cut short, we'll never know what he'd be up to today.

Cool poster

You wanna change the "then" to "than" in the OP?

With posting it on FB? I hope so, because I already did. If you object, I will take it down.

Awesome... although the

Awesome... although the grammar is a little confusing. Tyranny is over... if we want it? "It" seems to refer to "tyranny" in the previous sentence.

Maybe try this instead:

Tyranny is over!

If you want it to be.

I'm no native english speaker (2nd language only), but how about, maybe :

"... if you want it so"


"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

"If you choose?"

"If you choose Liberty." (although it says In Liberty already)

"If you take a stand?"

"With your help"

Or even just the plain "R3VOLution" logo.

"If you want it so" is a good one too.

I really like the logo.

I'd like one with the R3VOLution logo underneath. I think that would be cool.

Oh wow... I just looked at

Oh wow... I just looked at the John/Yoko poster, and it has the same grammar issue. So nevermind. Go for it. Obviously it's better not to change it since you are alluding to that famous poster.

'jscottb15' - is that ok for attribution? If you post an e-mail I can hyperlink it back to you in case you get inquiries (if u don't mind your poster being posted on my blog.) Great work, I think it's brilliant.

Thank You!
