Idealism is fucking dead.
Laughed off the stage at countless conventions.
Laissez faire is en vogue again.
It's silver tongue has been heaven sent.
One man, one vote, throw it away.
One land, one hope, throw it away.
When every candidate looks the same, born of noble blood.
So don't fucking talk to me about our tradition of democracy.
Who the fuck am I supposed to believe in?

    General Comment"Rum, Romanism, and Tammany" are things that were commonly used to describe the democratic party of the late 1890's Rum- anti-prohibition, Romanism - pro- catholic, and the Tammany hall politicians, a corrupt group of city bosses who abused thier power. I just read that actually almost verbatim in my history book and I thought of this song..
