    Oppression takes many forms. Us a African we know it well as our gun toting policemen, and even askari's. Or our unruly politicians that are often heavy handed. It also takes the form of our banking system designed to cause poverty, or the world government which just like our leaders doesn't always have our best interests in mind.

    At this time, I often realize what made the United States great is it ORIGINAL system of government centered around freedom. They valued freedom so much that you can burn the flag say anything you please because they knew one persons view of right is not necessarily the others.

    At times I pause and see we might be going the European way.
    Metternich one of the godfathers of the European states viewed "freedom as the voluntary acceptance of authority".

    "Oppression"

    Oppression
    you pray on us when we sleep
    oppression
    you chase after the tired the poor the weak
    oppression
    you know you mean only harm
    oppression
    you reach out with your long arm

    but oppression
    I won't let you near me
    oppression
    you shall learn to fear me

    oppression
    you seek population control
    oppression
    to divide and to conquer is your goal
    oppression
    I swear that hatred is your home
    oppression
    you just won't leave bad enough alone

    but oppression
    I won't let you near me
    oppression
    you shall learn to fear me

    oppression
    I don't see how you sleep
    oppression
    for your bleeding conscience I weep
    oppression
    you may have the dollar on your side
    but oppression
    from the gospel truth you cannot hide
    and
    oppression
    I won't let you near me
    oppression
    you shall learn to fear me
    oppression
    I won't let you near me
    oppression
    you shall fear me
