Once upon a time in America
It was  Utopia without a doubt
We all could attain our dream
And the people had the clout..

This didn't last for long I fear
We were lazy and apathetic
Liberties were squandered
Voter numbers were  pathetic

We clung together in groups
Saying we were Irish or German
Many are third generation here
It's time to be an American.

We affiliated ourselves together
In political parties we supported
Sometimes not knowing  at all
What policies they purported.

We did not know the wonders
Available to us in this new land
We just used everything up
Expecting more at our command.


We just didn't pay much attention
To the policies that now threaten
To take away the American dream
Time may have called us to reckon.

So its time to be a good patriot
Bring prosperity back to  the USA
And tell the politicians to shape up
And immediately do as we say.

I thought we did that this last election.  Lots of good that did.  We the people exercise our "clout" through our Representatives and Senators, if they fail us we are up the creek without a paddle.

We give up too easily, RB.... We don't make it hard enough on our politicians... We are too polite with them and we are certainly too worried  to speak out... Why is that.... because not enough people are willing to inconvenience themselves to get out there and embarrass them...We are too apathetic and think someone else will do it....And these 6 yr terms have got to go....
