Why I Am No Longer a Democrat

Why I am No Longer a Democrat

 

Democrats are like candy.

They rot the teeth out of our traditional values.

 

They are not sweet

Though they make sweet speeches.

Sweet tarts—

Only in their hedonistic sexual values.

 

They hold fairness in the air like birthday balloons.

They share

But only our share which they take

Like the communist party.

 

We all hated Senator Joe McCarthy.

Still, he was better than Stalin.

A few measly screenwriters were getting censored

In Hollywood while Solzhenitsyn was starving

In the Gulag Archipelago.

 

Useful idiots

Your name is Democrats.

Am I fair?

Better than being your idea of a fair share

Of others’ pies.

 

The liberals watch us stand on bread lines while

They look down on us from Windows on the World.

 

Oops.  Even the towers are gone under their love

Of fascist Arabs.

The Palestinians were Nazis.

And the Ben Affleck’s of the world can’t even hate them.

 

 

Obama says that Islam is a peaceful religion.

I guess the bones at Ground Zero are at peace.

The zombies don’t need a thermos when the blood has dried.

We collect the lunch boxes of the dead children.

 

The first time I heard Obama speak I knew that he was selling

Something that he didn’t have.

Appeasement is not a game plan.

It is folding in your cards.

The whole Democratic Party is bending over to pick up the dice.

The casinos are closing.

The teleprompter is being draped in black.

Obama has raised our debt to seventeen trillion.
