No one knows exactly where the original quotation, "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." comes from, but it was most likely from a series of debates on socialism in 1914, in which John Basil Barnhill uttered, "Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty."
Whatever the case, whoever said it spoke the damn truth.
Soft, vintage print on a Tri-Blend shirt, 1776 United logo printed on the sleeve with a custom soft printed tag. Fits a little slimmer than our standard shirt.
Ultra Soft Tri-Blend (50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon) construction.
***This shirt is thinner and lighter than our normal shirts because of the Tri-Blend vintage construction. Please be aware it's a little more slim-fitting than a regular t-shirt -- you may have to order up one size.

Happy with it
It's a thinner shirt but so far it hasn't shrunk up like so many other shirts from other companies out there chasing the dollar online

Fantastic shirt, love wearing it at college.
Fear the People T
As with all my shirts from 1776 United my most recent purchase of the Fear the People tee is excellent. Always a quality tee shirt and prompt delivery.
