    If you need a little heavy metal in your life (& who doesn't) check out the great "Tree Of Liberty" song/video from a few years ago...Your quote is featured quite a few times...

      The pictures in the metal video suggest that they don't have a clear idea of who are the patriots and who are the tyrants.

        Pretty sure this was something someone else did as the band didn't produce any official videos. That said, they are "real deal" liberty-first individuals. Jon Schaffer was arrested in the January 6 "riots" at the capitol building. He was also one of the founding members of the Oath Keepers group.

        Yeah, sometimes the presentation of images is a little confusing, and even with my disgust for GWB, putting him back-to-back with Obama was a little sloppy. But the guy got it right, mostly - I'm particularly happy that he's made the connection between the "green" cult and the potential for global totalitarianism under the "UN."

        Musically... As a guitar-based Hard-Rock fanatic I'm liking the rhythm guitar lots, but the vocal - though it avoids the fingernails-on-chalkboard deal-killer '90s relic that is the Cookie Monster Vocal Distortion Processor - is almost comical in its macho-profundo roar. Nonetheless, kudos to the band for hammering this out without sounding too preachy. I would've totally dug this as a teenager with a head full of quickly-solidifying principles and a thirst for all things Square Wave. And at 1:31 we see that the man has positively excellent taste in guitar engineering: The real-deal Gibson Flying V (guitar porn - :drools:)

        As someone whose love of Hard Rock remains undiminished - also as an Objectivist - I've become an advocate for that rarity of rarities, the niche of "benevolent sense-of-life Hard Rock." Stuff like UFO, Ronnie Montrose (RIP,) the Scorps, pretty much everything Michael Schenker, "Genesis"-era Light Bringer, the ShakaLabbits, Muvidat (which is 'Labbits reborn, kinda,) Tears of Tragedy (mixed malevolent-benevolent premises but Haruka-chan Can Do No Wrong,) Galneryus, Egoist, Doll$Boxx (Koga-san rules,) Daida Laida... And of course Big Ass from Thailand - do a YT search for "Gu Mai Ru," and เชิดสิงโต ("Cherd Singto,") or if you want the Full Monty, copy/paste "Big Ass HormonesTheSeries" at YT to hear "Daen Neremit" live at the 2012 Big Mountain Festival. And if you still finance Netflix, go watch "Hormones" - that's the whole cast in front row, BTW.

        Anyhow, thanks for the link, tohar1.
