    'Twas the night before elections

    'Twas the night before elections
    And all through the town
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions all up and down!
    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of political crap.
    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys
    They had come for my wallet
    They wanted my pay
    To give to the others
    Who had not worked a day!
    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink
    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!
    ' On Fannie , on Freddie ,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, On Pelosi'
    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    Who wouldn't stand up and fight!
    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-

    Ponder this when going to the polls.

    Change . Change ... Change !

    Not long ago I read a joke ... It said all the politicians running for president are promising change to the American people. We send them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change.


    Not really; there is too much truth in it to be funny.

    That got me to thinking ... They all promise change. How about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change. A restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable. Change? That, in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.

    We used to have a strong dollar ... Politicians changed that.

    Life used to be sacred ... Politicians changed that.

    Marriage used to be sacred ... Politicians are changing that.

    We used to be respected around the world ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to have a strong manufacturing economy ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to have lower tax structures ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to enjoy more freedoms ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to be a large exporter of American made goods ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to be an openly Christian nation ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to teach patriotism in schools ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to educate children in schools ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to enjoy freedom of speech ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship ... Politicians changed that.

    We used to have affordable food & gas prices ... Politicians changed that, too. ... and one could go on and on with this list.

    What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well if you will elect them.

    When, oh when, is America going to sit back with open eyes and look at what we once were and where we have come and say, enough is enough?

    The trouble is, America 's youthful voters today don't know of the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago. They see the world as if it has always existed, as it is now..

    When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will America realize ...Politicians are what is wrong with America ?

    That is the problem with politicians. Constantly fixing what is not broken.

    Political poem of the day

    America the beautiful
    or so you used to be
    not looking quite so pretty now
    not feeling very free
    Starting wars based on lies
    and cherry picking information
    We really shouldn’t be surprised
    at this inept administration
    They dropped the bombs with shock and awe
    and killed lots of innocent people
    but that’s ok with the religious right
    who meet Sundays under a steeple
    Bush was hellbent on gaining revenge
    he shouted from atop the rubble
    Little did we know at the time he was planning
    to get us in all sorts of trouble
    They made up some “facts” and told us they knew
    that Iraq was the party to blame
    When the facts didn’t fit, they blamed the CIA
    and outed officer Plame
    They decided the people were threats to them all
    so they took our freedoms away
    They can listen to our calls , open our mail
    without warrants or even our say
    They never had reason to worry about law
    they’d ignore it or else simply change it
    No one was willing to stand up in court
    and fight these guys in the Washington snake pit
    But battles are brewing all over the land
    as the Dems are now growing a spine
    Where have they been? We needed them bad
    America says it’s about time
    A nation of people has stood by in silence
    and let thugs hijack our land
    but now their eyes are starting to open
    and their brains are beginning to understand
    I hope that they have some really good lawyers
    cause they will be needing them big time
    unless they have changed the laws once again
    and treason is no longer a crime
    And here we have a canidate named John McCain
    who promises eveything 90% of the same
    Drill baby Drill as if thats the answer
    ignoring the warnings of global warming cancer
    So now here we sit on the eve of elections
    think real good and hard about your slection.
