‘Twas The Night Before The Elections

I received this in an email today.  It is very good so thought I would share.  I don’t know who wrote this or where it came from originally so I can’t give proper attribution.  Let me know what you think.

‘Twas the night before elections

And all through the town

Tempers were flaring

Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe

With a cat in my lap

Had cut off the TV

Tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden

There arose such a noise

I peered out of my window

Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet

They wanted my pay

To give to the others

Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money

And quick as a wink

Jumped back on his bandwagon

As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his henchmen

Who were pulling his cart

I could tell they were out

To tear my country apart!

” On Fannie, on Freddie,

On Biden and Ayers!

On Acorn, On Pelosi”

He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause

And as he flew out of sight

I heard him laugh at the nation

Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think

On this one final note-

    Typical racist crap.


  2. Tom Shelton says:


    How is this racist? Since when is challenging a person’s proposed programs and beliefs being racist?

    Obama’s race is not mentioned. I think you are having a problem with the fact that the post is not too far off from what will happen if we elect a socialist / marxist as President.


  3. Dave Williams says:

    You neocon republicans are so full of crap.

    If I make 1,000 a week and my neighbor makes 2,000 a week, NOBODY is going to my neighbors house, taking 500 dollars and GIVING it to me. NOBODY.

    Bush has run this country into the ground the last 8 years, and I for one will be happy to get somebody who hasn’t voted with him 90% of the time into office.

    ‘Twas the Night Before the Election
    ‘Twas the night before the election,
    When all through the states,
    All the people were stirring,
    And were tired of the wait.

    The candidates had sung
    Their promises with care,
    In hopes that the votes
    Would somehow be there.

    The people had wrestled
    With thoughts in their heads,
    While visions of doom
    Multiplied and spread.

    McCain is too stiff!
    He’s ready to snap!
    He settled for Palin
    And she’s full of crap.

    Obama rumors then surfaced
    Fueled by internet chatter.
    The anti-Christ! He’s a Muslim!
    Being black might matter!

    To the left or the right
    People went like a flash.
    They tore open their wallets
    And sent in their cash.

    McCain and Obama
    Gathered up their dough.
    While Hillary counted
    How much money she owed.

    McCain started pondering
    When Vice Joe should appear.
    But the party forced Palin
    With her 5 kids standing near.

    For old hostage McCain
    She was an unusual choice.
    For he didn’t know
    This Alaskan voice.

    “It’s Biden for me!”
    Obama proclaimed.
    “He’s got experience,
    Just like McCain.”

    However, he worried
    What Biden would say.
    Those Hillary women
    They still needed to sway.

    To the top of the polls
    The mavericks did crawl.
    The Palin effect
    Sure did enthrall.

    But,then she saw Russia
    And gave a steady supply
    To Saturday Night Live
    With her loony replies.

    So up to the poll top
    The Democrats flew.
    They dumped Jeremiah
    And William Ayers too.

    And then in a twinkling
    There was one major goof.
    The foreclosure notices
    Provided the proof.

    As banks went in the red,
    The economy unsound,
    Down the stock market tumbled
    Then tried to rebound.

    Robo-calls started ringing.
    Absurd emails were sent.
    Junk mail filled each mailbox
    With untrue content.

    Partisan rhetoric
    Was used to attack.
    They made fun of George Bush
    And how he went to Iraq.

    The debates-how they argued!
    They were both quite contrary.
    Each one told the nation
    The other was scary.

    Then Biden’s big mouth-
    It started to blow.
    “Obama will be tested
    That I do know!”

    Then Palin went shopping.
    And then she went rogue.
    She said what she wanted.
    And her clothes were from Vogue.

    And finally Obama
    Bought our TV time.
    But McCain said, “Wait!
    I think victory is mine!”

    Now up and down go the polls
    And we’re frightened and scared.
    What if he wins?
    He’s just not prepared!

    They’ve both promised change
    And we want to believe.
    But this election has left us
    Polarized and deceived.

    We now think in extremes.
    We will NEVER retire!
    We think it’s “their” fault.
    We think people are liars.

    We now vote for our future.
    But, I fear it’s too late.
    Are we forever divided
    Into red and blue states?

    I am right! You are wrong!
    Neighbor against friend.
    This is no way to live.
    We must start to mend.

    So I’m here to exclaim
    As the campaigning ends
    It can’t come too soon.

    Now let’s all be friends.


  5. Tom Shelton says:


    Have you not been listening to the things that Obama is saying that he wants to do. Need I remind you of his answer to Joe the plumber? He flat out said that he wanted to redistribute wealth. What about his comments about the Supreme Court? He said (when he was in the state Senate I think) that he wanted them to be more active in redistributing wealth.

    You are right that nobody will come to your neighbor’s house and take money and give it to you (or someone else) but Obama will pass laws (with the help of Congress) that will make your employer withhold it from your check. Don’t be naive, it will happen. And if you vote for Obama, then you are supporting this. Do you really want wealth redistribution?


  6. Dave Williams says:

    Isn’t that what taxes are when you get right down to it?

    You pay to redistribute the wealth to build roads, provide for a strong military, ensure every child gets an education, pay the hospital bills of the seniors on medicare, etc etc?


  7. Tom Shelton says:

    What you have described is not wealth redistribution and it is not what Obama is saying he wants to do. The federal government does need money (that it takes from us via taxes) to operate and do the things ascribed to it in the Constitution. We can debate what those things are later…if necessary.

    Obama is planning to take away from the successful hard working people in our country and give to lazy unmotivated people in our country. Is it right to take away the rewards of hard work from people who have earned it and give it to people who are not willing to work for it? NO!! If he does that, then we will have no one willing to work hard to become successful and then there will be nothing to take. What will he do then? Can you see the disaster this will be? I hope so…and please vote accordingly.


  8. Dave Williams says:

    Greg Pason, National Secretary of the Socialist Party USA: “Barack Obama’s programs are not socialist. The vast majority of his proposals are anti-worker (or he might say ‘pro-business’). His health care proposals are more to save the for-profit insurance industry and do not have the goal of ending for-profit insurance. He has refused to support a Senate version of HR676, which would create a single-payer program (not socialist but much better than we have, and [which has] the support of labor and community organizations across the US). Many of his other economic proposals are pro-corporate.

    A socialist program (even a reformist one) would not be a program that props up capitalism when it fails, but one that transforms the economy. None of Senator Obama’s proposals do that. Senator Obama’s tax plan is regressive and even less ‘progressive’ than programs put forward under such conservative administrations like the one of Richard Nixon.”

    F.N. Brill, National Secretary of the World Socialist Party (US): “Obama is as much a socialist as the Pope is an atheist. Income redistribution isn’t a socialist act. It might aid in ameliorating income disparities within a capitalist economy for a limited time. But the logic of capitalism demands the rich grow richer (more capitalization is needed) and the poor grow poorer (their work creates the needed capital used by the rich).”

    David Schaich, Socialist Party Campaign Clearinghouse Coordinator: “The idea that Barack Obama is socialist, or quasi-socialist, or semi-socialist, or socialist-light, or anything of the sort, is far-right nonsense. Barack Obama, like John McCain, is very much a ‘politician as usual,’fully committed to the continuation of the capitalist system and the expansion of its empire.”

    Barack Obama, the pious, messianic hero of the Left, is thrice denied by the socialist movement itself. Some say his proposals are in fact bad for working America, and others suggest he is just as much a dirty capitalist as the rest of us.

    Rea Hederman, assistant director at the Heritage Foundation’s center for data analysis, adroitly draws our attention to the real problem with Obama’s proposals, specifically his tax plan:

    “I wouldn’t call the plan socialist. I have concerns anytime that the tax code is made more complex or used as a tool for social policy. Ideally, the tax code should be made as efficient as possible to maximize economic growth and minimize the distortions that arise from taxation.”

    We may want to switch gears as the final weeks of this election tick on. Socialism is just a red herring…we don’t have to go nearly that far to criticize the senator’s many flawed proposals, which are anemic, impractical, naïve, and pure, unadulterated politics. But not socialist.

    Indeed, let’s forget about the S-word. The hope and change promises of the Obama campaign are the real weak spots, as once again he reveals himself to be nothing more than a politician in community organizers’ clothing.

    LOL not a bad piece of work!


  10. Tom Shelton says:


    Forgive me but I am a bit skeptical of the quotes you posted. What gain would these people have if they came out and agreed that Obama is a socialist. None. That would “hopefully” be a situation that would seriously damage his campaign and damage the opportunity they have to get some of their agenda accomplished.

    My point though is that even if Obama’s proposals are not fully socialist (and I think that is only because he does not share his true agenda) they will significantly move our country in that direction. We are already on that slippery slope because of the recent “bailout”. We will have a very difficult time recovering from that and then you add his policies on top and we will soon be a socialist country.

    We must oppose this and Obama.


  11. The Socialist label is an easy attack. Many still consider it a synonym for Soviet-style Communism, while others have different definitions.

    Venezuela has socialist aspects and is scary. Sweden does as well, but is well off.

    tom – i’ll say it, he’s a socialist.

    btw – why would a party with the lowest congressional approval rating in history (that also hold a majority i might add) compound the problem with electing a prez from the same party? oh i forgot – so incompetency can rise to even further levels.

    it’s a pendulum swing of emotion due to brilliant marketing – see bill clinton

    in the end here’s what wil happen – the dem controlled congress will continue to stale mate themselves -as they have done the last two yrs. for goodness sake, they couldn’t even vote us out of iraq, they have done nothing therefore, their approval rating amoung their own party is actually less than the dems view of prez bush – now, that’s what i call brilliance –

    if you keep putting the same crap in, you get the same crap out – so, four yrs of the same ol crap = nothing much but a lot of marketing
