Tell me.

 

One I heard at a church several years ago:

Boys are red. Girls are blue. There can be no purple.

Where I live the 'public sector unions' have been using this one in a variety of fields:

"Respect Our Work"

My current signature is from my micro econ professor in reference to welfare programs. Too classic to pass up, I might start a quotes thread from this guy.

Anyway,

"Respect your elders" (Also parents)

"Love thy neighbor"

Anything with the word "Duty" or "Moral Obligation"

At last those coming came and they never looked back With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black...

This classic reared its ugly head a few days ago at work. "If you don't vote, you have no right to complain."

"If you don't vote, you have no right to complain."

Oh God, I went to a "debate watching party" with 400 people at my university a few days back and the organizer said this multiple times while giving his speech on why you should register to vote. An AnCap friend and I were raging the entire time.

I dont think these are properly considered "totalitarian slogans." more like good advice.

@Wheylous

So i guess your professor was saying that anyone that is <18 years of age tat cannot vote, also cannot complain when their country is burning to the ground?

Damn you Wheylous! The only politically vocal friends I've made so far are a liberal and a social democrat! Yeah, that's gonna be a lot of fun trying to get them to our side.

Anyway, for my fathers birthday we went to see a play about all of the presidents. At the end of the show they literally encouraged people to vote regardless of how little they knew about the issues

@ Wheylous

You don't know how many times I saw that kind of bumper sticker when my family and I took a road trip up to Nashville, Tennessee.

These were the kinds of things that were smeared on to people's bumpers:

"Don't vote? Don't complain."

"America, fuck yeah!"

"America kicks ass. Don't like it? I'll pack your bags."

"Yankee go home."

"Stand up for America! Be American!"

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

In the spirit of these get out the vote comments:

 

"Vote or Die."

Not so much a phrase, but I despise "I believe in American exceptionalism" and all other variations. 

Also, "X government employee might ruin our lives, but they aren't responsible for the actions of politicians, so it's okay for them to do Y"

"We might hate Y, but our politicians have comitted us to Y and we need to keep our promises."
