What good are songs about tyranny & treason when we have a woderful President about to embark on his second term to continue implimenting the change he was madated by the Americn people to impliment? The tyrannical administration that tortured POWs,Committed War Crimes in Iraq, Put The Patriot Act upon us, fascilitated govenment wire taps, etc. is gone now. It's too late to sing about tyranny. I guess you are referring to our recnt escape from a resurgence of tyranny that Obama hepled us escape by defeating Republicanism again in this election he is being inaguraed for?
