"The unexamined life is not worth living" -Socrates

Obama raising taxes,
High schools advocating teen sex.
What where the chances?
That this would be our "change"

"Spead the wealth"
and change the policies on health.
Detract attention from the economy,
by lengthening the BP oil spills.
Hush Terry Jones to please the Muslims,
even though the 1st amendment it kills.

Geitner evading taxes,
While border control relaxes.
Help the illegals..
Even though, they are illegals..
Protect the rights of the pirates,
And sew Arizona for enforcing an old American law.
Have the media put all their attention in the change in climates,

Even though global warming was disproved.
Obama blames Bush,
and says America has improved.
But the government keeps spending ourhard earned money,
From the media, the reasons have been removed.

A lack of nation pride,
A misinformed youth,
This country's confidence has dried,
And its faith in God has become uncouth.

I still love America
for it gave my parents freedom they previously could not fathom.
Rescuer of most other nations
Its history is quite handsome.

I can only pray for now,
and hope this country will find a better commander
Who our constitution, he will not slander
In God we Trust,
To fix this economic injust.

The author's comments:
Just something I wrote before going to bed.. I encourage people to form their own opinions on political matters, because America is of the people, for the people, and by the people. I am not imposing beliefs on others, just exercising my freedom of speech.
