The Lyrics

If tomorrow all the votes were gone,
I’d worked for in this campaign.
And the money my supporters gave
Could buy no more champagne.

I would go back to the life I’ve lived
As gifted as it seems
Cause my bank and stock portfolio
Are someone else’s dreams.

And I’m proud to be a republican,
Where at least I know I’m rich.
And I won’t forget to remind the poor
That life’s sometime’s a bitch.

And I’ld gladly stand up
For your right to bear arms and protect me
Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this life
God bless the GOP.

From the beaches of the Hamptons,
To the hills of Beverly.
Across the desert to Palm Springs
From sea to shining sea.

From Wall Street to Chicago,
Miami to LA.
Well there’s greed in every conservative heart
And its time you heard me say.

That I’m proud to be a republican,
Where at least I know I’m rich.
And I won’t forget to remind the poor
That life’s sometime’s a bitch.

And I’ld gladly stand up
For your right to bear arms and protect me
Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this life
God bless the GOP.

let's see, republicans freed the slaves, demoncrats recreated slavery in the form of welfare which doesnt work unless you are the demoncrat politician buying votes with it, most all missionairies in the world are god loving right wing leaning people but who cares about the slaves and females getting raped and murdered over seas. yes, those terrible greedy republicans . . . it's so easy to just blast out some ignorance and be angry. by the way, most all of hollywood, entertainers, actors and actresses, and atheletes are rich demoncrats but let's not let facts get in the way. it seems like odumba bailed out a bunch of rich people and businesses with our tax dollars didnt he? any complaints there? i didnt think so

I can't believe I have to explain this again. LIBERALS freed the slaves, conservatives instituted Jim Crow. In the 1860s, the Republicans were the liberals. That changed when they discovered that war, civil and otherwise, was good for business. By the 1870s, America had two conservative parties. Over the 20th Century, the Democratic Party became more liberal, until their Southerners, nearly all conservatives, began to switch parties. If Lincoln were around now, with his support for blacks, labor and education, the men who now run his party would call him a socialist. And he would call them fools.

we dont need no explanation from someone who supports odumba. when he campaigned, he told us of his stimulous yet it was loaded with policies he denied were in it. we need a demoncrat to tell us about history? get real. tax and redistribute for votes, lie and create unconstitutional laws, bail out big businesses and supporters, ruin america and go play golf. great leader that odumbinator

i've heard of "history for dummies", the third commentor should write "history by dummies". how would he explain robert byrd and george wallace and the thousands of racist democrat politicians in the 20th century. a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
