this is just a political opinion, not propaganda or an invitation to a debate.. im sure a lot will agree and im sure even more will disagree.. but its what i felt like writing..

I tried really hard to refrain from mentioning names and writing it really long.. cause i could go on.. but i hope it gets some kind of point across, no matter if we agree or not


Political Contradictions

Christian broadcasters throwing threats
As a conservative, He speaks for liberals
As the liberals speak their "truth"
And the conservatives
Stand behind their "propaganda"
"The Daily Show" and "CNN"
Are outlets for Political Contradicitons

Debates with unexplained answers
Empty promises and vows
Laws taking away our freedom
As soldiers die to protect it
Protests and rallies happen everyday
Vetoes continue on things
That need to be changed

Documentaries and books are created
Hate mail is sent, For both
Conservatives and Liberals
"terriosts are everywhere"
"The hardest part is over"
Have been quoted as
Statements filled with educuation

Talks of helping the "senior citizen"
But then medicaid is cut
"I'm all for veterans benifits"
As contractors make more money
Than those soldiers protecting
The workers freedom to work

Labeling anti-war rallies
As hate for the soldiers
But I have not seen one "I hate marines" sign
Although anti presidantial signs flourish
Talks of helping the economy
as the gas prices rise
Talks of tax cuts, as more people go bankrupt
Soldiers denied loans
Undermanned police forces
As we devote time and effort
To building a new country

Political contradictions are everywhere
Making a speech to pro-thinkers
Then throwing it away
To start a fundraising speech for the anti-libers
All for money and power,
For whoever wears the suit and tie
Whether you are donkey or an elephant

Not everything is on display
To prevent a web of deciet
"The less you know, the better"
Is something we hear often
No questions and abstract thinking
Just love your 8-5 and leave the thinking to us
But lately it's getting a bit obvious
How long has it been since the 1st bomb dropped?
Oh well, Just more political contradictions

  Well, I totally disagree with you. I have seen "I hate Marines signs" - and I'll be sure to look up the AP article and message you with a link.
The flow was choppy, it wasn't very poetic, more of an angry rant, but overall the poem was solid, even with your flawed ideology.

  Pretty well said, Ben, I disagree that a lot will disagree with this, it's hard to dispute the obvious truth.
I just loved your line:

"Laws taking away our freedom
As soldiers die to protect it"

How true can you be???

Very political, but also very hard to dispute, and I personally just happened to agree with every word of it.

Bloody well done.

Be Happy

  Wow boy! Tell it! When are you going to be on TV with this one? I can literally see you telling of Dan Rathers or someone.

I think that you really gave an "American Speech" on this one. I am very impressed. When I opened it...I was we go...more politics...but you did a great job on this. You made it interesting.

This is a great write - you stayed focused and avoided naming the names, but definitely made it clear what was going on. I'm not sure that anyone could argue with any of your points because they are all valid...
Well done my friend
