The phrase Sic semper Tyrannis is Latin and it means "thus always to tyrants". It also has an alternative meaning which is, "thus, ever to be tyrants". This Latin phrase was recommended to the Virginia Convention by George Mason in 1776. This Phrase lies in the History as attributed to Brutus, who was a Roman senator or the Roman Republic, at the time of the assassination of Julius Caesar. Sic semper tyrannis became the motto of the sate of Virginia. It has also been incorporated in the seal of Commonwealth of Virginia. The seal shows virtue, which is a persona of excellence, with a sword. The Virtue's foot is on the prostrate form of Tyranny.

In addition to what Nyala wrote, you should know that "Sic Semper Tyrannis" is also what John Wilkes Booth reputedly shouted after he shot Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865.

Thus Always to Tyrants was also the title of the debut CD by Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, an alternative-country act.
