Music has been used as a media for protest. It is a way to make a statement and share a point of view to the listener in a poetic setting. In certain Nations, there has been censorship of this outlet. It is a way to prevent the audience from hearing the message that the government deemed inappropriate.

Freedom of speech is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or legal sanction. The term “freedom of expression” is sometimes used synonymously but includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used.- WIKIPEDIA

Freedom is the reason I am proud to be an American. The Constitution protects the Freedom of speech. Freedom is the reason I continue to write.

Freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 19 of the UDHR states that “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression.-WIKIPEDIA

Well, it’s only gonna be about an hour, friend

‘Til they dam your favorite river

So you can water-ski just one more reservior

And them supersonic ships are gonna take you

‘Cross a sea of pavement

To one more faceless brickyard on the shore

I never would have thought that in my lifetime, I would be seeing the censorship that I have seen this week in the United States of America. This week, our President, (Yes, he is still the president until noon Eastern Standard Time on January 20) was censored on the Social Media outlet called Twitter. Apple and YouTube have followed suit by blocking the popular social media app Parler and by removing certain videos that may support the ideas of this U.S. President.

Yeah, it’s only gonna be about an hour or so

‘Til they rip off all your mountains, boy

And that one last tired old eagle bites the sand

And all of that high-and-mighty scenery’s

Gonna be leveled to the ground, boy

By a bunch a’ them mindless strip mines on the land

I have expressed in the past my political stance which is neither here nor there where this article is concerned. What is the issue is the way that these large corporations have been able to come in and overstep the Constitution of The United States of America. I am appalled by the fact that the media has only reported half truths and the incoming administration, who has been under such scrutiny has continued to damage this already damaged nation through the ways they are handling the current crisis that has affected us all. The corona virus and the economy I will place at the top of the list.

So listen well, my brothers

When you hear the night wind sigh

And you see the wild goose flying

Through the gray, polluted sky

There won’t be no country music

There won’t be no rock ‘n’ roll

‘Cause when they take away our country

They’ll take away our soul

Through the United States Army, I served this great nation. I took the oath.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. (So help me God).”

During my time in the service, Bill Clinton happened to be the President of the United States. Therefore, my Commander in Chief. I may not have liked him, I certainly didn’t vote for him, but I did follow his orders and the orders of the officers appointed over me because of the oath that I had made. Was Clinton any worse or better than the current administration? Seriously folks, President Donald Trump has 10 days left in office. I really don’t see how he is being blamed for inciting some sort of riot and even if he did so what?

We the people are also granted the right to protest and the right to assemble and those rights are also protected by our Constitution.

Well, it’s only gonna take about a minute or so

‘Til the junkyards fell the prairies, boy

And them smokin’ yellow grass fires start to burn

And the warnings on them beer cans

Gonna be buried in them landfills

No deposit, no sad songs, and no returns

“You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything” Aaron Tippin once sang.I am singing right now that we as American’s have got to start standing together or we are going to fall and fall hard. The buttons that are being pushed by todays media are what has incited these riots. We the People are not sheep being led to slaughter. We the People have rights that are supposed to be protected by this government who is just as guilty of not upholding the Constitution as the protesters who turned to violence are guilty. The ideas that the left thought it was okay to march on some place like Portland Oregon but didn’t think that it was okay to march on Washington is not okay. It isn’t ok for any of us who choose to call ourselves American.

Yeah, it’s only gonna take about a minute or so

‘Til the factories blot the sun out

You gonna have to turn your lights on just to see

And them lights are gonna be neon, sayin’

“Fly Our Jets To Paradise”

And the whole damn world is gonna be made of styrene

We as Americans need to be American enough to keep our country free. This country has prided itself on being a country who doesn’t need assistance from anyone to survive. Why have we begun to rely on foreign trade and products from other places when we are perfectly capable of providing such products for ourselves?

Yeah, it’s only gonna be about a second, boy

‘Til they take away all’a this country

And they’ll tell you not to listen to this here song

And that far-off sound of freedom’s

Gonna be an echo from the past

And the final tune is gonna be sad and long

To Twitter, Apple, and YouTube:

Stop the censorship/ be kind to your fellow man/ have you ever taken the time to try and put yourself in somebody else’s shoes? What if the entire world suddenly traded in their iPhones for a Samsung? What if We The People founded our own social media site. What are you going to do when the people start streaming their music on other platforms?

And it’s only gonna be about an eye-blink, boy

‘Til they pull out the wool to blind us

So we just can’t read all the messages on the wall

But the only words that matter

Oughta be scribbled all over them billboards

In big old black and bloody letters, ten feet tall

In my book, the only words that matter are that we have to find Union and step away from the division that has been happening for so many years in this country. Respect those whom we made the oath too whether or not we happen to agree. We The People have a right to opinion, but we must respect other opinions that don’t necessarily align with our own.

So listen well, my brothers

When you hear the night wind sigh

And you see the wild goose flying

Through the gray, polluted sky

There won’t be no country music

There won’t be no rock ‘n’ roll

‘Cause when they take away our country

They’ll take away our soul

There won’t be No Country Music(There Won’t Be No Rock in Roll) – written and performed by C.W. McCall aka Bill Fries.

Pancho.
