Free Speech For All

This country is based on the fact that we have free speech.  Just because I voice my opinion that the war in Iraq is wrong DOES NOT mean I am not proud to be an American.  Just because I believe our president is an idiot DOES NOT mean I should go live in France.  It means I am exercising my right to free speech.  Sad to say, but a good portion of this country is ignorant and uneducated or miseducated.  Bush speaks to those people.  I am not completely liberal and I am certainly not completely conservative.  But I do have an opinion and just as I have always done since I was able - I will vote. 


John Mayer - "Waiting on the World to Change" 

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could

Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care,
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change
