    My Vote Was Gone

    I went back to Ohio

    But my vote was gone

    There was no representation

    There was no democracy

    My rights had disappeared

    Of all my favorite freedoms

    My vote had been pulled down

    Refused for no reasons

    Ay, oh, way to go, Ohio

    Well, I went back to Ohio

    But my registration was gone

    I went to the courthouse

    There was no justice there

    I was stunned and amazed

    My American dream

    Quickly became the past

    Like the wind through the trees

    Ay, oh, way to go, Ohio

    I went back to Ohio

    But my once sacred ballot

    Had been taken away

    By a government that had no pride

    The votes of Ohio

    Had been replaced by Russian bots

    And Fox lies filled the air

    From Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls

    Said, ay, oh, way to go, Ohio

    Tin soldiers and Nixon coming

    We’re finally on our own

    This summer I hear the drumming

    Four dead in Ohio

    Gotta get down to it

    Soldiers are cutting us down

    Should have been done long ago

    What if you knew her

    And found her dead on the ground

    How can you run when you know?

    Gotta get down to it

    Soldiers are cutting us down

    Should have been done long ago

    What if you knew her

    And found her dead on the ground

    How can you run when you know?

    Storm troopers and Tяump are coming

    We’re finally on our own

    This summer I hear the fascists

    Heather died three years ago

    Gotta get down to it

    Traitors are cutting us down

    Should have been done long ago

    What if you knew her

    And found her dead on the ground

    How can you run when you know?

    Storm troopers and Tяump are coming

    We’re finally on our own

    This summer I hear the fascists

    - Yar, progress should never sleep. There are things that far more important than money when it comes down to essential services. I’m not aware of any other major government department that is expected to pay for itself. A token payment should suffice, which is still more than we than we require (with exceptions) from the rest.

    - Aye, Trout’s considerable experience and intelligence gave credence to his well considered views. The world needs more people like him, especially here and now.

    My daddy taught me how to cheat

    But if I can’t fire ‘em, I think I’m beat

    He threw me money to teach me how

    But I bet on losin’ anyhow

    And now I’ve flipped off the American dream

    I know this is gonna be an ugly scene

    If I could find my favorite whore

    I’d never, never tweet no more

    I’ll give you nothin’, I’ve had mine

    I’m goin’ down just one more time

    Goin’ down

    Goin’ down

     

    Now the People are gettin’ tight

    Counting down to Election Night

    Think I’ll finally get the sack

    Just squirmin’ here, I can’t go back

    I never really liked this town

    I think I’ll ride the chopper down

    Just eatin’ cake, I’ll still be free

    There’s disgrace hangin’ all over me

     

    Waving back at the chumps galore

    You’d think they’d never been Tяumped before

    I’m flyin’ on down to Mar-a-Lago

    Goin’ to pick up on some swingin’ ho

    I know I’ll know a better day

    I’ll go down tweetin’ all the way

    Goin’ down

    Goin’ down

    Sock it to me…

    Goin’ down the river

    With my lily liver

    And I wished I had delivered

    But I do believe they meant it

    When they told me I’d regret it

    And I do so bigly sweat it

    They’ll see me as a dirty hound

    When the truth goes around

    Goin’ down

    Goin’ down

     

    Wakin’ up to tweet

    ‘Hate on Democracy in the street’

    I’d like to pretend I didn’t cheat

    But I forgot to save some cash

    And it’s so hard rob white trash

    I’m pretty sure I’m gonna crash

    And I knew I should have made me lose

    It’s front page news

    Goin’ down

    Goin’ down

     

    I wish I had another job

    It wouldn’t be so hard to rob

    I should have taken time to think

    Besides I got the picture straight

    Putin must have had another date

    I didn’t need this extra weight

    I wish that I could see my favorite whore

    Don’t want no more

    Goin’ down

    I’m goin’ down

     

    And now I see the life I led

    All my ideas came from Fred

    I should have learned to read instead

    And now it’s really got me stumped

    I can’t believe the way I slumped

    I’d like to get that Biden bumped

    I can’t believe they believe I’m tough

    I’ve suffered enough

    Goin’ down

    Goin’ down

     

    I wish I looked before I ran

    I didn’t know they’d bust my scam

    Been down before, I didn’t get caught

    Doesn’t anybody stay bought?

    This D.C. scene is gettin’ cold

    I’m hungry, sleepy, fat and old

    They told me to govern nice

    I should have taken their advice

    I only want to go on home

    I’d gladly leave politics alone

    What a way to end my life

    If I can I’ll keep causin’ strife

    - Yes, our political future looks bright! If we can hold on to a semblance of democracy for another generation, all political parties should be progressive (in the literal sense) out of demographic necessity. And when the effects of AGW start to impact everyone’s daily daily, we could see a dramatic shift in ‘political’ attitudes.

    @Richard S Russell – No, it isn’t.

    The politicians in the thirteen states that ratified the Constitution intended to keep all the power and influence that they possibly could, while still benefiting from the national alliance. It’s kind of a miracle that we have any democracy at all — Mr. Madison took it as far as possible in that era of voting by white male property owners only.

    True democracy would require each and every citizen’s vote to count the same. Alaska, with less than ¾ of a million citizens, has the same power in the U.S. Senate as Texas does with 29 million citizens. Improving our democracy as we go is what the Founders really intended. Workin’ on it!

    @OldCoal – It’s true. So many of us seem to think that Trump voters don’t see through him — they do, but they just don’t care. Playing along is good for morale / ego.

    With presidents, we usually tend to vote against someone (with a dozen or so notable exceptions) rather than for someone. How many times have we heard “anybody but Trump / Hillary”? Aside from his ‘base’, I believe that most all Republican voters will hold their noses and vote against any Democratic candidate — regardless.
