    Twas the night before

    Twas the night before elections And all through the town Tempers were flaring Emotions all up and down!


    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of political crap.

    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys

    They had come for my wallet
    They wanted my pay
    To give to the others
    Who had not worked a day!

    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink

    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!

    ' On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, On Pelosi'
    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-
    IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM
    GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!

    • Statistics show that the stock market averages about 15% under Democratic presidents and about 9% under Republican presidents. It appears that Democrats tend to do more to strengthen the middle class or backbone of our economy. You can’t have a prosperous Wall Street with a bankrupt Main Street.

      I personally would like to see a flat-tax with a “Poverty Line Standard Deduction” based on how many kids you have. With NO loopholes, this tax system would do more to make sure that everyone pays his or her fair share beyond a reasonable affordability threshold. If all Americans are equal in the eyes of the law, then all Americans should be subject to the same price (tax rate) for government services IMO. It would also be nice to be able to do your taxes in less than five minutes ;)

      • id like to see everyone on welfare or public assistance work at a gov job (wpa) or manditory schooling or trade school... 5 years on the dol then off. that would strengthen the main street

      • Python,
        disparity between dems and repubs is because the repubs usually follow the dems and vice versa.
        Reagan repaired carter's mess, clinton cruised on Reagan and bush, then bush crashed on clinton policies. The dem congress (and clinton) screwed bush jr w/ their liberal policies, and now BO can fix it. (I doubt it) I think that is why clinton didn't put his full endorsement in for BO as he thought the dems would not fare well in 2010 senate and 2012 pres and senate elections as a result.
        I think we will soon see what BO knows: Not much.

    • Lousy poetry and even worse thinking!

    • While I don't want socialism,I certainly don't want dominionism!
