Life Obama's Way

She was in that school chair all the time,
And all day long.
She was tired of all this teaching,
And all the things that she got wrong.
She left there in a hurry, ran to her house,
Told her mom she was quitting,
She was going to drop out.
Her mom sat her down and said,
"Honey, please don't do this."
But her mind was made up,
And she couldn't be dealt with.
She told her mom that she was, sick of learning,
And that she wouldn't go back,
Even though she could see her mom it was hurting.

Life came hard and cruel to that little girl,
And she began to realize,
She had given up the world.
She had a poor little job,
At a convenience store.
And her trashy car had broken something
She just couldn't afford.
Her friends who had finished school had all become a success,
And she saw she had made of her life a complete mess.

She wanted to fix things,
But she couldn't pay for school.
And they didn't give any scholarships,
'Cause the government was cruel.
They had ruined the economy,
And had taken all the cash.
They had killed her elderly grandmother,
And all the old ones at last.

The President was a Communist,
And there was no hope.
The America she knew as a child,
Had all gone up in smoke.
One day she tells her children,
Of how it was like,
To be free to make decisions,
Without fear of a fight.
The veterans run and hide in fear,
Of the President now,
Because he says that they are a threat,
And they must be wiped out.

What happened to that country,
Land of the Free?
It was taken over by a man,
Who was communist as could be.

In the end there's no one old, fat, or free,
And no one has the choice to be
What they want to be.

he may be a socialist/veryyy liberal but not communist. i understand mrs. author you're frustration but to turn our country around we have to remain calm instead of spouting insults no matter true our accusanations may be. you said glen beck was a heroe to you. congrats. but i dont think you're listening to him. he has been trying to tell us over and over to use respectful words to get our point across. how many dems have commented saying how crazy you are? lots right? well dont give them a...

hi. i commented on your other article-
"Who believes Pres. Obama is full of junk?"
and you recommended me to read this poem. And you are right, i do like it. i think it expresses exactly what is happening in the world. I am a christian also, and a conservative ( as you can see from my screen name). i truly appreciate that you care enough to express your views and speak your mind. some people couldn't care less about what is happening in the world. (I know a few) but ... (more »)

Thank you! It is teens like you who encourage me and tell me that the hope still lies in us. Thank you for standing with me in these times. I think that the conservative teenagers wil have to stand together before this is done and make a difference. Thank you for standing with me now, and I hope that you as well as many others will stay with me when times get worse. May God bless and guide our country from sin and communists.

I am not saying that he is communist BECAUSE he is a member of the democrat party. I have family and friends who are democrats, but he is farther than that. Obama has communistic tedencies that if you look closely at times you can see. This man is dangerous. I do not and will not support him.
