Reversal of Thought

Amidst the chaos and conventions
The political ads with evil intentions
The truth was twisted and left to die
Watch the rich man laugh and the poor man cry
We had conservatives in our youth
Who had some connection to the truth
Power and greed, corruption and deceit
Have taken the battle into the street
Represent the people, they no longer can
losing connection to the common man
He's still conservative but he no longer buys
Assaults on the White House with innuendo and lies
He fears that the truth may never be found
Lost in the minds of leaders unsound
To win at the polls regardless of cost
Even if the country is lost
To rebuild a nation with the economy broken
Cannot be cured by lies that are spoken
Better ideals and integrity sought
The truth will bring a reversal of thought.

The actual twisting of the truth by  Lyin' Ryan at the RNC
was an embarrassment to any American.

    Every politics has own motives, we don't even know which is good or not. This express real deal. Reality bites.

    As a right of central voter, I disagree. We are a nation of many different viewpoints. That is why we have a two party system. If we were all Dems, we would be like Russia or Chna. We are not, we are all Americans not born of a single mold but created in freedom of speech and choice.

    I do agree with you, Allan. I've been in favor of conservative leadership but what I saw when I wrote this was ultra-extremist conservatism and the reversal of thought was mine. The two parties only work together to keep honest leadership out of office. Third or fourth party candidates will find it impossible to get elected without the corporate pirates backing.

    I like this and you are so right. I pray for things to change one day. I also read If When my Time Comes. That was one great poem. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    I always enjoy your political writes so few of us even do them. Please soup mail me the lie of Ryan's [there were so many 1/2 truths I must of missed this one?] Happy Thanksgiving! Light & Love

    this is classical Vince, a wonderful poignant poem,, told as it know Vince for years now i've worked with mingle with good honest folk, most who like me and you know, what is going on, yet somehow the powers to be, are able to safeguard the smoke screen that they manage to hide behind.... again love the poem,,,
