Democrats Make Me Wanna Vomit

about

How many wars do democratic administrations need to start, how many bombs do they need to drop, how many civilians do they need to kill, how many drone strikes, how much of our tax money do they need to spend on the military, before we realize that they're just as worthless and corrupt as the Republicans?

lyrics

Wilson said he was an isolationist
And he would not send our young men off to die
But as soon as he won the race for president
That turned out to be just another lie
Truman said he wouldn't kill civilians
And he didn't want to hurt nobody's mom
But as soon as he had the opportunity
He went and dropped the fucking atom bomb
Kennedy, he said he was a man of peace But with the battle plan unfurled
He sent the US Navy to the Cuban shore
And then he just about blew up the world

Democrats make me wanna vomit Liberals make me wanna hack
They love to talk like they are friends of you and me
And then every time they stab us in the back
Every time they stab us in the back

Then there is that guy we knew as LBJ He was the one for “great society”
He sent his Air Force down to blow up Vietnam
To make sure that those folks were good and free
Jimmy was the one who talked of human rights
Human rights for everybody, ha ha ha
He was opposed to dictatorship and torture
That's why he loved Suharto and the Shah

Bill was from a little town in Arkansas He was just another Joe
That's why when all the people said don't do it
He went and signed the WTO
Some people might think I'm cynical And I don't know why that would be
So even though they voted for the war
Now I'm going for Barack and Hilary
