    Just as an aside from all the election stuff, I was wondering what politically themed songs people on our forum enjoyed. Anything from Toby Keith to Neil Young. If possible I'd encourage people to post a link to a you tube video or a free stream of the song and/or the lyrics.

    I'll start it off...

    Here's one of mine....

    From Charlie Daniels...Simple Man




    I ain't nothin' but a simple man
    They call me a redneck I reckon that I am
    But there's things going on
    That make me mad down to the core.

    I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
    There's crooked politicians and crime in the street
    And I'm madder'n hell and I ain't gonna take it no more.

    We tell our kids to just say no
    Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
    Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town.

    Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope
    I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
    I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down

    Well, you know what's wrong with the world today
    People done gone and put their Bible's away
    They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
    The good book says it so I know it's the truth
    An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
    You better watch where you go and remember where you been
    That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man.

    Now I'm the kinda man that'd not harm a mouse
    But if I catch somebody breakin in my house
    I've got twelve guage shotgun waiting on the other side

    So don't go pushing me against my will
    I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will
    So if you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by

    As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
    For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
    And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess

    Just take them rascals out in the swamp
    Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
    Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

    You know what's wrong with the world today
    People done gone and put their Bible's away
    They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
    The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth
    An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
    You better watch where you go and remember where you been
    That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man

    Nice, I liked it.

    for everyone else, here's a link to the song being played to a rather weird, and not really fitting video.

    Mister Lincoln

    Mr. Lincoln I wish you were here.
    The Republic's changed a lot in a hundred years.
    And I don't think it's working like you planned.
    Oh, Mr Lincoln, we could use a hand.

    I just read the headlines in The Nashville News.
    And I wish I'd made this up but I'm afraid it's true.
    'Cause a man was murdered for his money in the streets.
    He was taking his wife to a nice place to eat.
    When they caught the man he did 23 months of time.
    He pled insanity like they do now all the time.
    Sir, what would you have done in 1859?
    Now if you shoot someone, Sir, you can get off scott-free.
    It's the latest thing, Mr. Lincoln, can you believe?
    Now they sue the manufacturers of the guns.
    Ain't the law changed a lot since 1861?

    Mr. Lincoln, I wish you were here.
    'Cause things have changed a lot in a hundred years.
    And I don't think it's working out like you planned.
    Hey, Mr. Lincoln, we sure could use a hand.

    I just heard the news story on the radio.
    They let dangerous men out of prisons now,
    Yes, sir I'm afraid it's so.
    'Cause they're overcrowded and it was only his fifth offense.
    This time, he's killed someone, does that make any sense?
    Now my lawyer called me about a nuisance case.
    'Cause everybody sues over any little thing these days.
    Well at least we're right.
    All we gotta do is tell the truth.
    He said "You're living in the past you romantic fool."
    I said, "You got that right. I lean toward the older ways.
    And there's damn few backwoods lawyers left today."

    Mr Lincoln, I wish you were here.
    The Republic's changed a lot in a hundred years.
    And I don't think it's working like you planned.
    Hey, Mr. Lincoln, we sure could use a hand.

    Mr. Lincoln, please, could you come here?
    'Cause things have changed a lot in a hundred years.
    And I don't think it's working out like you planned.
    Mr. Lincoln, we sure could use a hand.

    The movie ran through me
    The Glamour subdue me
    The tabloid untie me
    Im empty please fill me
    Mister anchor assure me
    That Baghdad is burning
    Your voice it is so soothing
    That cunning mantra of killing
    I need you my witness
    To dress this up so bloodless
    To numb me and purge me now
    Of thoughts of blaming you
    Yes the car is our wheelchair
    My witness your coughing
    Oily silence mocks the legless
    Boys who travel now in coffins
    On the corner
    The jurys sleepless
    We found your weakness
    And its right outside your door
    Now testify
    Now testify
    Its right outside your door
    Now testify
    Yes testify
    Its right outside your door
    With precision you feed me
    My witness Im hungry
    Your temple it calms me
    So I can carry on
    My slaving, sweating,
    The skin right off my bones
    On a bed of fire Im choking
    On the smoke that fills my home
    The wrecking ball is rushing
    Witness your blushing
    The pipeline is gushing
    While here we lie in tombs
    While on the corner
    The jurys sleepless
    We found your weakness
    And its right outside your door
    Now testify
    Yeah testify
    Its right outside your door
    Now Testify
    Now Testify
    And its right outside your door
    Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
    Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
    Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
    Mass graves for the pump and the price is set, and the price is set
    Who controls the past now controls the future
    Who controls the present now controls the past
    Who controls the past now controls the future
    Who controls the present now?
    Now Testify
    Testify
    Its right outside your door
    Now Testify
    Testify
    Its right outside your door
