I am sitting in Atlanta at a motel venting that frustration in part of me giving up, and the other part saying Free Speech is worth it.

I am thinking of going to CNN Center today, but that is like going to Washington to tour the White House dressed as Ben Franklin, they look at you as some Liberal nut in an outdated outfit. That today one must look like a Obama and/or Romney Conglomerate suit to be heard. Maybe it is best to stay at the motel and sleep that frustration away.

It used to be I would love to shake a hand of a politician, but today I am afraid of getting contaminated. Especially with special interests and PAC money being used.

Excuse my Free Speech.

Taste Of Poetic July 4th 1776 Middle Class Frustration


Upon an American Dream,

Can one float back upon patriotic time

To be this Ben Franklin doppelganger visitor

To experience history’s miracle being born -

First hand.


Today’s politicians are really morbid morticians.

That Obama and Romney are Progressive Reagan’s,

While real Liberals created America’s Blue Collar

Workers in Capitalism with Constitution’s construction,

While today Washington, is in deconstruction modes.


Obama and Romney are Conglomerate representatives,

Having both forgotten their founding father Capitalist roots.

They are both White Collar Country Club wealthy Americans.

Who consecrate their time with the 10% who elect them.

Those who have outsourced the Middle Class for their profit.


Could Obama have a MLK face today for his election?

Could Romney have a Kennedy face from Massachusetts?

Could they be flimflam flip flops that sell their BS outright?

How can they afford to ignore 40% of America’s welfare?

Except to be the best choice of the worst for 90% of America.

That in 1776, they would have been shipped out as Tories.


This July 4th will they celebrate within our inner cities need?

That poverty of the America Dream born within dire prayers.

Or will they be on their other side of the tracks getting money,

Segregating and selling themselves as political whores

Building campaign chests that outsource small businesses.


Republicans and Democrats have divorced America’s economy,

Romney Private Equity has profited from firing in human misery.

Obama destroys Democratic bridges to Blue Collar neighbors,

Upon a going it alone Chicago attitude, of close knit isolation,

With his glass of promises half empty and half evaporated,

Leaving a Mitt Romney Chainsaw, to privatize RomneyCare

Giving out private equity deals to friends, who follow him and Cain,

Sorry Bain..


Could Obama and Romney go on CNN to wish

America a 238th Fourth of July birthday?

That will be like this Ben Franklin doppelganger

Going on CNN to bless America’s 100% prosperity,

Who would say NUTS to the America Dream

Never Under Tyranny Surrender (NUTS)

That God Bless Made in America Dream

That flutters in Ole Glory’s -

Made in the USA miracle.


I wish our politicians had more

Ole Ben hearts for 100% of America,

But then this doppelganger is an ole FART

Future America Reigns Today (FART)

In changing 90% of our obnoxious –

Noxious representatives.
