Neil Young's Let's Impeach the President

This isn't the catchiest tune--but I certainly agree with the sentiments expressed.

Let’s impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door

He’s the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war

Let’s impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government’s protection
Or was someone just not home that day?

Let’s impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected

Thank god he’s cracking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There’s lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean
Thank God

Yup, o'l Neil is a Heroic voice once again, 36 damn years after "Ohio". I pre-ordered this new CD from Amazon.com, to show my support...

Way to go! I'll expect to listen to this some day...while drinking some ancient Lagvulin.

But does it have a good beat you can dance to? :)

I need to check out a copy of this. I keep hearing such good things about it.
