You needed our aide
When you were broke
So, we crossed the ocean
And your pockets got stroked.

You begged for our help
While from a dictator you’d hide
So, we sent over our sons
For YOUR freedom they died.

But that wasn’t good enough
For any of you
You can’t take responsibility
For the things that you do.

You say we’re fat
And lack morals too
But, I don’t see any difference
In any of you.

You sit there judging
And making a fuss
When all the while
You’re no different than us.

You lump us all
Into the same category
Not realizing each of us
Has quite a different story.

You say all we want
Is the world to steer
But all we want
Is to live without fear.

You say our president
Just wants his war
What would you do
If terror came your door?

Would you crawl to a corner
And twiddle your thumbs
Hide your head and hope
That somebody comes?

And just who, may I ask
Would your rescuers be
Most likely the sons
Of Americans like me?

Who would lay down their lives
On your retched behalf
So you can continue to treat us
Like decomposed chaff.

Well, we’re damned if we do
And damned if we don’t
So next time you need help
Just maybe...we won’t.

So think about that
When the going gets rough
Because here’s one American
Who’s had more than enough.

Why would anyone want to rule the world, when ruling just a country can give you a lifetime of ulcers?

well done mom. although they say that they are our alies they sure don't act like it they wine and cry cuz they might have to go to war we don't like it any more than they do, but if we stand idly by the terrorists win. we need to stand up for what we belive in and our freedom thats what sets us apart from others that and we are willing to give our money, hearts, brothers, etc. for someone else to have a chance at freedom and a good quality of life.
I love you
