Tapping into the anger: the following poem is worth a read to help you vent your feelings; taxpayers of America, you're being heard

I was up on Capitol Hill here in Nashville and was given this great poem that speaks so directly to the anger many Tennesseans and Americans are feeling toward the gross overspending in Washington.

Taxpayers, your voice is starting to be heard. An omnibus spending bill of $410 billion was stopped last night in the Senate for all the ridiculous earmarks in it. Democratic U.S. Evan Bayh of Indiana has come against the Obama spending spree.

So here's a poem to take to heart. And spread it around to focus the anger on the points it makes lest our nation become a socialist failure.

I don't agree with all its points. Government spending over the past 100 years has done some incredible good. And the health care system must be reformed toward universal care as a moral and economic choice that will cut down on the number of victims and costs.

Still, strong feelings must be raised and directed to prevent Obama and the Congress from destroying individualism and the American Dream in this nation.

Use the following for some inspiration that your voice is being heard.

The Tax Poem

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me
to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our
nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest
middleclass in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the heck happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

And I still have to 'press 1' for English !?!
I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!! YOU
can help it get there!!!!
