Democratic Choice In Party U.S.A.

You have the right to vote
You can even believe every quote
You have the choice between A and B
300 million people and there is only two you see

You have the right to live in peace and love
You can bomb your enemies from above
You can do all that when you are free
300 million people can even do it to me

You can vote for a hero from a war that you lost
You can vote to continue another war at any cost
You can forget the recent dead in Cambodia, Laos and a few
300 million people voted then to drop bombs on them too

You can vote for the party you voted out before
You can vote for the party you let back in the door
You can even vote to forget about Timothy McVeigh
300 million people were going to blame Iraq for that day

You can vote to increase the War budget some more
You can even vote to change every law
You can even change what Liberty will mean
300 million people should be the only ones for which it is seen

You can vote to move all your jobs of shore
You can vote to give them to the Communists you outlaw
You know they are no threat to your freedom anymore
300 million people owe them house home and the door

You know you have your democratic right
You know more than two would cause a fight
You can’t have a choice of more than the two
300 million people have only the opinions of a few

You know that your democratic right and liberty
You have won through death and insanity
You now can not change even if you wanted too
300 million people trapped to the words of just a few

You know that if you don’t get the vote right
You can have another vote in four years without a fight
You can even have the same choice of just two
300 million voices will never get heard anew
You wonder why the rest of the world does not see
You can not see why they don’t want to be
You with your might power and false liberty
Six billion five hundred million people think it is insanity
