Four more years of War is Peace, Ignorance is Strengh and Slavery is Freedom. Four more. May all your interventions be "Humanitarian". Four more years of pay-to-play politics, power and influence. Four more years of legalized bribery and served corporate interests.

So vote for Tweedle-dum or Tweedle-dee and a framework of debate narrowed for you courtesy of the ultra-rich and a media that filters out any voice that challenges their power (like Nader bounced in Boston by State-Troopers because he don't speak for oil-tycoons and bankers, whose pursuit of happiness and liberty demands a rhetoric of fear to be the litmustest for viable heirs to the phony drug-wars , the trumped-up rogue-states , the permanence of a war-economy).

I feel less hopeful and less human as I'm reduced to nothing more than cheering on embassy bombings as the liars pave their way through four more years...

    General Commentthis is a pretty good song, propagandhi don't demonstrate a very good grasp on reality in this song by reducing democrats and republicans to tweedle-dum and tweedle-dee in an effort to generalize that all politicians are the same when everyone knows that's not true.

    General Commenti disagree BlackLungFever..

    if you look at the democrats and republicans, a lot of their policies are very similar and the reference just sums up that in general they are not making decisions that are in the best interests of all the people, and therefore can be considered to be stupid decisions..

    General Commentalso the chorus runs similar to this in that both parties stand for similar things as either way - whoever gets in - we're in for four more years..

    General Commentbush already fucked everything up so much, even if kerry were elected we would still be fucked. fuck bush. fuck...

    did anyone else notice that the educated open minded states along the coasts were the ones that voted for kerry...while states like buttfuck texas in the middle of uneducated religious closed minded areas voted for bush. hmmmm

    General Commenti agree with kikujiro...exactly.

    bluetears...if there was no difference between democrats and republicans we would not have such a divided society these days. in the big scheme of things, there are relatively few issues that both sides support. propagandhi saying there is no difference between democrats and republicans is like saying there's no difference between banning homosexuals from marriage and allowing them, or being anti-choice and pro-choice, or for the death penalty or against it. There are simply too many issues that separate what a desireable government should have and what doesn't make sense for liberals like propagandhi. For Propagandhi to try and degrade the politicians working to liberalize the country by saying "only the green party is ok" is bullshit. the democratic party has moved so far to the left in anti-war, pro-environment, pro-same sex marriage, pro-choice etc that to say they are just the same as conservatives is flat out ignorant and i have emailed them about this several times.

    General Commentwar is peace.. whichever administration it is seems to agree. US military bombing of yugoslavia DEMOCRAT
    US military bombing of afganistan REPUBLICAN
    why? because it was in the US's interests. not yugoslavia or afganistan. corporate and political gain. and let us not forget, war is a handy little money earner :P
