Stand up, Look up, and Stop rolling over [Update 2]

Cubicle dwellers — we are not like 'whistle pigs' waiting to have our numbers thinned. Stand up, Look up (to the Lord – 2 Chron. 20:12, 15), and Stop rolling over for something just because someone in power says so. We should do so peacefully as much as it is possible, but also remember the struggle our nation's founding fathers engaged in to reject tyranny.
A recent WorldNet Daily article describes what some are doing to shift from their hunkered down mode to an active speaking out against the increasing tyranny of the police state we have morphed into.
Join with the Tea Teams to get off your couch and participate in the nation’s restoration. Bill Finley (“Wild Bill for America”) and the Tea Teams are not sitting idly by and just letting things happen. Step up to leadership and actively inform your elected representatives of your reaction to their behavior.

Remember the famous quote attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller an outspoken foe of Adolph Hitler:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- 
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.
We must speak while it is still possible to speak!
King Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven . . . a time to be silent and a time to speak.” Now is the time to speak!
[Update 2]

When a pastor in Simi Valley, California noticed that Bibles in Costco were labeled “Fiction” he spoke out. See the Fox News segment. This was likely a genuine mistake for which Costco apologized and took immediate steps to correct, but some morally challenged people who commented applauded the mistake. That mentality is becoming rampant today.
