KILL AMERICA

Post by LadySaturn » Tue Sep 03, 2013 12:09 am

KILL AMERICA

Dumb down the masses
to keep them in order.
Feed them lies
good enough to swallow.
Make sure they remain blind
to all your political crimes.
Keep the media in your back pocket.
Just in case you have a rat among you.
A good scandal leaves no paper trail.
Just a lot of unanswered questions and mass confusion.
In order to build a new empire
you need to destroy the old.
Make sure to bury it deep from prying eyes
and then deny any knowledge of it at all.
Threaten anyone who speaks the truth
and label them a terrorist.
It's easier that way
than having to explain yourself.
And if all else fails
turn the people against one another.
Give them a distraction
so they don't see your true nature.
Give them a distraction
so they don't see you kill America...

Just curious,... But what would you replace it with?

Actually you might want to ask the politician or the one controlling the strings of the politician that question. Seeing as I wrote from that point of view... :hello:
