While not specifically OC oriented, I like these because they are so laconic and defiant to tyranny. Does anyone know of any other similar slogans that are brief?

Sic semper tyrannis. ("thus, always, to tyrants) is the official motto of Virginia. Sometimes construed to mean "death to tyrants" which is an extraction [paraphrased] from the full quote.

Our Virginia forefathers were men of the right stuff.
