    Description:
       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

    PLEASE ENJOY

    dotsPolitical Contradictionsdots
    -------------------------------------------


    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 like...here we go...more politics...but you did a great job on this. You made it interesting.

    BRAVO!

      Ben,
    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
