    Keith’s song captures a “sentiment”, that I’m glad he has chosen to express. … Yet, I would like to hear artists put to song the Constitution, the underlying principles and arguments “for and against”: perhaps the tension in the Federalist Papers, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and the like. …

    Our society and Country are collapsing because there is too much electronic media, entertainment distractions, … then there are the “crises” the demorats “will not allow to go to waste”, … and we (as our parents and grandparents who went before) all work for the “government” (federal, state, local, NGOs, regulated companies, all the professional and other contractors, etc.).

    We celebrate the “high paying” jobs our relatives have because they work for the “government”, yet neither they nor we realize they are benefiting from a “less than ‘zero sum'” game. They are not only stealing from us (who do not work for the “government”) but from their and our descendants (who will survive the “abortion gauntlet”).

    If the culture today has reverted to “song” and “poetry (aka Rap)” to communicate knowledge and wisdom of the ages (or stupid “sound bites”) than let the “Toby Keiths” of the world do more than “preach ‘woe is us’ to the masses”.

    Gerard, you have the “gravitas” to possibly reach Toby and help him reach his potential. I do not.

    Thanks for posting this great song–I first heard of it yesterday–and what a perfect one for right now.

    As I traveled home from Texas, I say bill boards with his concert dates! I assume he’s touring right now. Should he come to Reno, we’re going.

    My wife & I saw him once in concert; well worth it.

    This 4th of July weekend, you have “Moors” closing the interstate in Mass (where the Revolution began in 1776, you’ll note) in an armed militia standoff. So much for “white rage,” Gen. Milley. Intel much?
