Eloquently said oasisjack, and I agree with your standpoint. However those of us on the other side of the Atlantic who share your mistrust of
government and police have one difference, an unarmed police force (Britain &Ireland) in the most part. I can walk down the street and know that
(unless I am armed and going quite mental) that I will not have a loaded weapon pointed at me when I am arrested.
My humble point being that I have a greater freedom of expression to protest etc than you do without putting my life in danger from the police. Sadly,
I feel and this is only a personal opinion, that if our respective governments decided to clamp down heavily on us both, yours (US GOVT) would take
far less prisoners and use a much deadlier offensive and be far less forgiving against a potentially armed populace.
You seem to have substituted the oppression of the British, for a far deadlier and more insidious oppressor of your own.
Democracy is the illusion that we both share,
You have guns, they have bombs,
big muthaf*****g bombs.
All they need is someone to blame,
skyscrapers one day,
cities the next.
The Land of The Free is a myth,
The Home of the Brave may yet be tested.
