The Government by alekSparx The Government by alekSparx
This is something I wanted to do for a long time, and I guarantee in the future I will be doing different versions of this exact quote :D

"Isn't it funny
when it rains and pours
the government
have money for wars
but can't feed the poor?
and then expect us
to fight their wars
what the fuck
am I fighting for?"

I hate to be a wet blanket on this....but this sentiment has been going on for the last 60 or so years here in the states, and look at British history to see it's been there for hundreds of years.
I used to be a flag waver, and to some extent still am....however the events of the last couple of decades and especially of the last 8 or so years have made me want to become an anon to escape what I once revered.
By the way, Listen to the lyrics of Dylan or Credence Clearwater and you sill find the sentiment well said.

And by the way, like what you wrote.... grin

the poor fight the wars

The rich sit back and watch from their homes, planning the wars, telling us we fight for the right to life and to live happily.

Quite awesome. Shouldn't it say "the government HAS money" though? Just a thought. Otherwise, spot on and a really great piece of work.

I like how the writing's slashed- reminds me of swords. And the dollar sign for the 's' is genius. xD But, following the sword thing, I would have liked to see little holes in some of the words to be like bullet holes. I think that'd be cool.

I love this either way. Just sayin', the quote's so true. Awesome.

quote is from 2 tupac songs combined ;)

for thoses who are fighting wheather they want to admit it or not, they are fighting for the Rockefeller, the Rothschild, The Zibigniew, and the other billionaires of the world, and the organizations like the Bilderberg, who motto is it's easier to kill a million people than it is to control them. Or we could say there fighting for the NWO

I spent my time in the miltary to. but we no longer fight fo freedom. because we realy have no freedom any more, and it is getting worse every day with Obama in the whitehouse, but then it realy wouldn't make any difference who is in there because its the billionaires that run the world in this day an age not the politicians. there just there to make us feel good like we still have so kind of power, but we don't. they are taking more and more of out rights away every day.

It cuts my instinct deep to know that, I know how militant life is although I havent lived it I have read enough books/blogs and inside stories to know how it is and just to get used for the "love of the country" which is disgustingly wrong... like dont get me wrong you could love your country but the truth is you are fighting for money over anything :l

It's the sad truth though, the world is run by billionaires owning the countries mainstream money income and the government is just here to give false hope whilst making more money and taking away more freedom for the future... it's what I fear most, what would life be in another 20 years if we barely have anything now

you won't have to weight 20 years i'm afraid, in the next 2 to 3 years we will all have a national I.D. card with a cip in it, so they will be able to tell us wheather we can work or what we can buy where we can live, where we can travel or not. after that then they will move to a chip in you hand, you know like they do with dogs, that way they will know where you are at all times and they can stop you from doing what ever they want. this is comming and it is comming sooner that one wants to think, they want to cotrol us like a bunch of cattle.
