IT'S ALL FOR MY SECURITY

A satirical poem © June 16, 2008 by G. Edward Griffin
I woke up Sunday morning (Father's Day) with a silly limerick running through my head. It was a satirical comment on how Boobus Amricanus is so willing to give up liberty in return for the false hope of security against terrorism. I couldn't get it out of my head so, after dinner, I began to play with the words and eventually produced a first draft. Because satire often communicates an idea more forcefully than dull documentation and logical argument, I am publishing it to see if it has any such utility. I hope you will find it useful with your friends who don't yet get it.

IT'S ALL FOR MY SECURITY

It's more than mortal man can bear.
Those terrorists are everywhere:
on land and sea and in the air.
Network TV bill of fare
daily warns us to prepare
for bugs and bombs and poison air
and other things enough to scare
the bravest man to deep despair.

They hate our freedom so we're told,
our way of life so uncontrolled,
our rich, our poor, our young, our old.
I guess their hatred just takes hold
and burrows in and makes them bold
enough to kill and spend their gold
and set in motion plans untold
to get us ALL, or so we're told.

Seems strange to me they don't resent
the other guys who represent
a way of life with free consent
or those who are benevolent.
The only ones they seem intent
to devastate to great extent
are those whose aero-planes were sent
to bomb their homes with such torment.

Never mind, the war will stay.
We're going to fight this all the way.
But there's a price we have to pay
to keep the enemy at bay.
Let our leaders take away
our lives and liberty TODAY,
and then our fears will go away
that they'll be lost some future day.

My phone is tapped. My mail is read.
They know the thoughts inside my head.
The money I deposited
is now reported to the Fed.
They chip my hand, dispense my bread.
I think they watch me go to bed.
I don't object. I'm glad instead
to be controlled until I'm dead.

CHORUS
And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it's all for my security.
You see, you see, you see?
I'm just as glad as I can be
to let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it's all for my security.

Yikes!!!!!!




There's a new phrase for honesty, integrity, and common sense in government.

It's called "Ron Paulitics"

Many of our friends and acquaintances are Huckabee supporters. :-(
Here's a letter to the editor I wrote that was printed in Sunday's paper:

If Only…
…there was a Presidential candidate who:

* was not afraid to speak the truth
* never had any ethics charges or investigations
* never voted to raise taxes
* never took money from special interest groups, lobbyists, etc.
* never sought favor/gifts/monies from any of the above
* returned money to the coffers by running a frugal office
* never voted himself a pay raise
* never flip-flopped on issues - especially during the past year
* never beat around the bush refusing to answer questions during debates
* never took tax-payer’s money for personal use
* never voted for legislation that was unconstitutional
* never promoted his religion
* understands what pro-life really means
* really has our best interest at heart not personal power and greed
* really understands what our founding fathers intended by limiting government and guaranteeing liberties and freedoms for the people
*really understands that government has no business telling us what our choices are for health, nutrition and medical issues
*really understands the effect our foreign policy has on our economy
*really understands the effect our deficit spending has on our economy
*really understands how enslaving socialism and fascism are and how far our country has come from the original intent of our Founding Fathers
* truly has the military and vets behind him because he’s worked for their best interests
If there WERE such a candidate, do you think the powers that be would give him a fair hearing? Or would they ignore him and tell you he couldn’t possibly win? Would they gleefully report that he had dropped out when in fact he has no intention of doing so? Would they hope he will go away and the American people won’t wake up and realize what has happened to our country?
Stop allowing the network news to tell us who will be our next President. Think for yourselves folks!

PS. And amazingly there is such a candidate! Congressman Ron Paul from Texas.
