Do you seriously think the US is more oppressive than the tinpot dictators in Africa, or most middle East Arab countries, or China, or Russia, or the remnants of the Soviet Empire, or Burma ... I'd really like to see you justify this "by far the most oppressive" comparison.
Like I said, hyperbole just taints any kernel (there! back on topic :-) of truth in your argument. There is plenty wrong, but it pales in comparison to the other oppressive nations around the world. If oppressive governments really do worry you, you ought to present the best argument possible, not the silliest.
