Once upon a time
In a not-so-distant land
Our fathers set out to make a difference.

Secession was their plan
To stay away from what we see today
And to make this our own good land.

Federal government said "Heck, no,
We're not about to let you go.
We'll invade to keep you here!"

When it was done
And they had won,
They changed their ideal.

So, slaves to them, we all should bow
And government seeks to oppress us now
And keep us while they can.

But stop and listen to their words,
Look at the banner they choose to unfurl
To make government slaves of each boy and girl.

No longer will you have a home,
Government says IT now will own
And fathers and mothers all will groan.

So, to be said, when they are done,
Away from this we'll want to run!
Wake up America, it won't be fun.

Socialist Obama is here you know,
To possess us all as we grow
From newborn babes to grown adults.

Smell the fear within our hearts.
Watch the falsehood of his charts.
Listen not to what he says, but watch his deeds instead!

Dead Money (Stimulus checks sent to the deceased)

by Daniel Benson

Dead men tell no lies,
Yet to them the money flies.
They tell us government didn't know,
Yet somehow to them the money did flow.

Social Security lost a lot,
Around two million, what a cash crop!
Ten thousand checks to the dead, so they say,
And dead men will cash them anyway!

Money missing that you pay,
And this government just dies to give it away.
Missing money and checks mailed--
For such negligence they should be jailed!

Around two million unaccounted for,
Yet they choose to underscore.
When will we as a nation awake?
Too late, and too bad we didn't see the break.

Those Political Parties

by Daniel Benson

Two political parties, though really the same,
Many voters they can claim.
Yet no difference in my view,
Though the parties, they say, are two.
Socialists they claim abound,
Yet they forget to look around.

Many people they call friend
Still are socialists to the end.
Senator Arlen Spector wanted to switch,
Yet when they're the same, which is which?
So to the masses I proclaim
Is this thought of "two" not just insane?

When two parties "differences" they desire,
Yet to do the same things they conspire.
So I ask, just what they find true,
Since they can't make out red or blue.
These parties that say they are two
Really are one when brought into view.

To the politicians this I say,
"Please, why don't you go away?"
Liars, cheaters, that's what most are.
This I can see from afar.
Government small should be,
Nationally or locally.

So wake up America!
Your government's taking your freedoms to task,
And how long will this country last?
Part of a one-world government I will not be.
Politicians take our kids away
And public schools mold them into slaves of clay.

Health reform is just a joke,
Your new doctor may be English country folk.
Your car will make its way, the ocean to cross,
While China,Yugoslavia, and Africa await your loss.
So little time and money you see,
But voters next year we may not be.

So to end my political rant,
When honest politicians are oh, so scant,
America again may never be,
Except as part of the Communist tree.

The So-Called Stimulus Package

by Daniel Benson

To every aspiring government hack I ask one simple question. Why can't you seem to get it through your heads that I and many of the American people did not vote any of you into office--yet you say the American people did such. How many dogs, cats, and gravesites did it take in some cases to fill your ballot boxes--or voting machines?

You squabble, fight, and argue and yet manage to do nothing beneficial when you are in office except to hurt the chances for our children to grow up correctly instead of being wimps, losers, and nobodys. You accomplish nothing but the public arguing before passing out the pork to your friends) and for some dumb reason I can't understand you seem to fascinate the "news" people of this once great nation that is now on the third world doorstep of most other nations.

This stimulus package that House and Senate haven't been able to agree on with the president lies in shambles, which might be a good thing (though some sort of backroom deal will eventually be cut).

Here is my plan for government hacks. I think you should all work for minimum wage while you hold on to your supposedly elected offices and then let's see how fast you run for office again. Or better yet, while you are in office--work for free and let's see how quickly you get things accomplished that will benefit the American people, who are now just a mish-mash of other nationalities and can't even salute the American flag when it goes by.

I wonder how many of you take up politics for the fat paycheck we pay you when we are having difficulty putting food on the table. We don't need protection from other countries--we need protection from our own elected officials.

So I suggest that rather than putting more of our money in your friends' pockets you should all consider a vote for cutting our taxes and putting more money back in our pockets, not yours or your friends. And while you are at it, why not consider restoring to us those God-given rights we were guaranteed in the original Constitution? And even if you cut a deal and pass this thing (with all that pork for your friends) before I reach a ripe old age, I can guarantee I won't be voting for any of you the next time either and will hope fervently that you lose your cushy congressional jobs to someone else. Who knows, that someone else might even be someone like me.
