Truthful Republic of the Independent American Constitutional
Constructional strength of truth of power,
Foundation of highest accounting of law,
Bare facts that must pass supreme tests,
Facing public scrutiny of a free press.
No media can be allowed to be intimidated,
Nor be allowed to be creatively controlled,
Able to swing from liberal to conservative,
Views at ease with our great constitution.
People who label, condemn independence,
Political royalists slaves to closed agendas,
Reporters have to open minds without fear,
Closet reporting hurts fresh air questioning.
Words walking tall with our constitutional,
Truth paramount to first-class government,
Central element core American democracy,
Pillar of true character of United States might.
Politicians shaming our intelligence with lies,
They face the wrath of voter accountability.
The President cannot use Wall Street tactics
That creatively bankrupts the public faith.
America was founded for its diverse people,
From all the shades of wealth ‘n coloring,
Babes born to dream of inner flight of hope,
Elderly dying in warmth of a loving nation.
Politicians have forgotten the key ingredient
That bleeds in the compassion of a people,
Unity of the needs of our fellow beings.
Our countries wealth in its diverse people.
Our officials treat our people like slaves,
Forcing third world conditions on them,
Outsourcing work for our dynamic future,
Importing workers, bulldozing education.
Oh the pain of political fraternity parties,
Infested parasites of green-blood greed,
Pork spending graft of illicit cronyism,
Lowest class of ethical moral character.
Special interest groups of segregated values,
Dictating to the Moderate silent majority,
Intimidating their way like Sen. McCarthy,
School bullies shredding America’s fabric.
Politicians in trouble will divert attention.
Blamegate will explode in defensive strategy.
How the libelous media treat them so wrong,
Never facing the mass public of lie detectors.
Note: Plamegate proved the Vice President staff was involved in lying, and destroying the character of one person to get back at another. How many would say it is okay for someone who has issues with you, then to attack your spouse for revenge. (Is this right even in politics?) How much did Cheney and his staff, lie to the President, lie to Congressional leaders, and mostly lie to the citizens of this great country, whose value of “voter privilege” demands the truth? They must face citizen accountability that requires the highest standard of ethical behavior. We must demand that those who do not adhere to the moral fortitude of good character being expunged like bad apples, and punished by the law of the people of this United States.
The harder a politician shifts his topics around to show his compassion, the more LIES under his words.
The President is reaching out to blacks with Rosa Parks (She deserved it, but I wish the President had more black friends, and had more visit him.). He is trying to get on top of the bird flu, his War Against Poverty - Louisiana Hot Sauce Style (eliminating a vast amount of food stamps), and other people things. The heat within the White House must be unbearably full of it for its lies are seeking the truth.
What is the most important thing you can do to a politician today? Ship them of to Iraq; they can serve the people better there. The Republican Party needs to band in groups, the ultraconservatives, moderates, fiscal accountants, corporate element, and other fundamentalists. The Democratic Party needs to have liberals, unions, civil rights, moderates, and other activists. Each must get independent voices to keep the political power broker families from controlling our future; they are the one manipulating shame.
The power is in having your voice free, the nations might is in having your mind questioning everything upon clarity, and the truth is the greatest gift of mutual respect shared in independent individuality.
