This will be our downfall

With goverments like ours, we need no wars
Cause´we´re being destroyed from within
The immigrant population taking all these jobs
What is happening to our people is a sin

These factory owners rub their profit filled hands
They go up while the rest go down
So from this mixing bowl we watch dismayed
As they invade our every town

Our forefathers fought in two great wars
They believed they were dying for a cause
But if they could have seen what we see now
It would be a war that never was

These goverments need us, be sure of that
If they want to stay afloat
But we can beat them through the ballot box
When it comes our turn to vote

We really had fine countries once
But they´re giving them all away
Cause´the people coming in to work
Well they´re coming for to stay

I´ve nothing against them personally
Be they from Poland, Japan or Rome
But there´s a saying we all should recall
And its-CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME

Gerald, there's much truth in this writing, you've expressed your feelings and I know it makes you feel better to get it out.

Beat 'em at the ballot box? That's a damn laugh . . . We elected the worms who are there now . . . It matters not which lying sonofabitch we vote for . . . Democrat or Republican . . . There ain't a dime's worth of difference to them . . . I wrote a book called "Margaret and David: A Love Story," which tell what this country is going to look like in the not too distant future . . . The book is listed here on AD if you want to take a look see . . . I'm sick of 'em all . . .
