Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, None but ourselves can free our minds

Bob Marley
~Redemption Song~

Old pirates, yes, they rob I,
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it's just a part of it,
We've got to fulfill the Book.

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it,
We've got to fulfill the book.
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had,
Redemption songs,
All I ever had,
Redemption songs,
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

Who owned "the merchant ships".

How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?

Luke 3:38
Isaiah 43:3-5

I am no Dr Paul but sure...'s picture

A very powerful line

Have always loved that line, right up ther with RP's Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected... Which also seems to have made a strong impression on you. I sent you an email through the Daily Paul ans wanted to confirm that you got it.

Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected, once it's realized that our Liberties and Wealth are in Jeopardy. -Ron Paul

No I didn't get it :(

I have bellsouth and they rarely let DP stuff in....it's the weirdest thing. I've been getting robbed by them for years and it's always "liberty sites" that don't get through. I'm amazed more people don't realize how much "communications is mucked with". How easy it would be to throw a spoke in the wheel of our ever meeting up type thing huh?

Here's my youtube channel, send me a message through there maybe?
