"Leaders" turn their heads.
Ignoring as with other injustice to have graced our nation's great halls.

How long will we be led like idiots;
Teased with a dollar on a string,
while the usurper sits on our back holding the pole?

I will not let my progeny fall into deprivity and depravity.

I am an American.
A true idealist who’ll rebel against the tyrant, regardless of geography.
My children will succeed.
The world will change.

This was a great topic! Keep it up.
I feel the same way about our nation's
government.

Today a man discovered gold and fame,
Another flew the stormy seas;
Another set an unarmed world aflame,
One found the germ of a disease.
But what high fates my path attend;
For I-today-I found a friend.
