      Vote Them Away         

Words & Music Copyright by Barry Feldman (ASCAP)

Thereíre jobs to be done here but no jobs around
Profits are back up while all spending is down
And the real causes of all this darkness and doom
Are just the elephants in the room

Itís Republicans, make no mistake
Itís just Republicans blockin your way
Itís these Republicans donít be afraid to say
Itís the GOP you gotta vote them away
====================================

I donít mean to demean each one
But it seems they vote 300 to none
No matter how extreme No matter how wrong
So the only hopeís to vote out every single one

Of the Republicans, in Congress
Itís Republicans, leaving us with their mess
They crashed the economy, squashed the recovery
Theyíll start it again unless we can sweep out this reckless GOP
====================================

The job creators of this land
Will cut any jobs that they can
Theyíve had a ten year tax cut but just want more
The only jobs that they create are jobs offshore

Itís Republicans, refusing to pay back
Republicans holding us way back
These Republicans making our day
The GOP now has the tickets to be voted far far away
====================================

Some of my best friends
Used to be Republicans
But now they vote for those whoíd sabotage this land
So they can try to falsely blame a fine President

They state the opposite of the proven facts
When proven wrong they keep repeating it back
We saved corporate bonuses and bailed out their banks
So they discontinued job investment, just to say thanks
Remember all the travesties Republicans caused
They let the banks run wild without any laws
Remember how they brought us the Great Depression
Invented Iraq and then triggered this Recession

These Republicans Ė Last time we let them slide
But these Republicans still laugh off any compromise
Stalling till they can start to destroy things again
Thatís why we got to vote out these Republicans
====================================

When they vote against workers Ė vote them away
When they vote against work Ė vote them away
Before they vote away your Medicare Ė vote them away
Before they vote away your Medicaid Ė vote them away

They vote against nursing and construction jobs
Firemen, veterans and first responders
They vote down the jobs we need to get things done
The jobs so consumers can spend some money
They vote against insuring pre-existing conditions
They vote against a civilized countryís mission
Thereís nothing they donít vote against
Unless itís a war with a false pretense

These Republicans kill every vote or plan
That would employ the average man
They serve a super-rich few to help them hoard all the funds
Thatís why we got to vote out these Republicans
====================================

When they vote against teachers Ė vote them away
When they vote against schoolkids Ė vote them away
When they vote against fair elections Ė vote them away
When they vote down womenís health protections Ė vote them away

They vote against the earth, air, water and sun
They vote against the earth goin round the sun
They vote down security of chemical plants, shipping yards and nuclear plants
Education conservation medication operations restoration civilization
Any vital regulation
Weíre more productive but our pay cuts remain
They vote down promised pensions and minimum wage
They vote against Social Security
Our Cabinet is vacant cause they block each nominee

Itís Republicans - Letís just be honest, OK?
Itís these Republicans hoping weíll lay back
Itís Republicans Ė Donít let them scare you away
You got to show up and vote the whole GOP away
====================================

When they vote against your right to vote Ė vote them away
When they vote against holding a vote - vote them away
When they vote against safe food and drink - vote them away
When they vote against the kitchen sink -vote them away
They want freedom of religion for one religion
Freedom to violate your privacy
Freedom to evade any finance laws
Freedom to impose State martial law
FreeDOM to have an arsenal for your own army
FreeDOM to trash United States unity
Freedom to take my vote from me
Freedom to end democracy

Itís Republicans - make no mistake
Itís just Republicans blockin your way
Itís Republicans - donít be afraid to say
Itís the GOP - we gotta vote them away
