Theme Song for 2010

It used to be that when I thought of 2010, the first thing that popped into my mind was HAL 9000, the Black Monolith, Dave Bowman, and the Blue Danube as theme song.

Ok, ok, the Blue Danube is from 2001: A Space Odyssey but let's not get too technical.

Now, though, 2010 means something altogether different for me. I suspect that for many readers of this blog it is the same.

2010 gives Hope.

Hope for Change.

A 1994-style takeover-of-the-House type change.

This (dare we call it a revolution?) that will take place in 2010 needs a theme song to pump up the troops.

Here's my suggestion: Uprising (by Muse).

You can take a listen here.

My favorite portion of the song:

You know that their time's coming to an end,
We have to unify, and watch our flag ascend

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious

Do you have a better song for the cause?

Please suggest your own in the comments!

Corny? Maybe.

But at least we aren't forcing school kids to sing worshipful hymns to Dear Leader.

Advocating an overthrow of the federal government - it's about time you clowns got honest about your "patriotism" and "love of country".

glenn:

Problem Libertarians and Conservatives (and I'm one) have is that there isn't a political party that can supplant the Democrats. The Republicans had their chance 1994 thru 2006. Blew it bigtime as a result of greed and corruption. I'm often wrong and I hope I am this time but I'm thinkin' unless Barry really comes a cropper on the world stage the Dems are set for 20 years or so. Maybe more.

I disagree, glenn. The Dems and Barry ARE doing everything they can to awaken the American public...and that will result in at least some weakening of their ability to "Fundamentally Transform" this country.

and as for Steve Green...if Obama and the Dems continue on their path to transforming us a "Worker's Paradise" then it is our RIGHT and DUTY to resist them. Our Founding Fathers knew this might happen...and added both the 1st and 2nd Amendmentsto the Constitution. We'll need them both!

Now you gonna end up in a socialist slide.

The globe is outta norm. Gore sounds the alarm.

Define the "our" in "our right and duty".

Obviously workers don't count - you want to take the country away/back from "them"...

But you know - "them" is "me" and my daughter and son, and my Dad, friends etc.

So now that we know who "the workers" are tell me about these people who want to take the country away from "the workers".... who are they - what are their interests.

I'd like to know who I'm fighting to protect this country and it's "workers"....

You see, you may love our current govenment but love of government, any government, does not equal patriotism.

Deke:

I just find it hillarious all this talk and giddyness for 2010. I wonder if the Hannity's, Beck's, Limbaugh's, many on this blog, etc., wonder what's gonna happen in this new glorious political "revolution?"

Let me see.... John, I spend more time in the tanning bed than on fighting, Boehner will be Speaker? Olympia, I vote with the liberals 98% of the time, Snowe will be Finance Committee chairman?

The same people who orchestrated the Republican downfall with their wishy-washy conservatism, inner-beltway games, and overall poor performance are still the "leadership" of the party. An anology I could make would be a prisoner on death row being given a choice. He could A: Choose to have his lethal injection given in one series and die quick, ie., the Democrats plan for change or B: be given a series of shots over several days thus extending his life a few days, ie., the Republicans in charge. Of course in both cases he ends up dead, one just takes a bit longer to accomplish.

Of course the answer is tougher than the American ppl want to take on, true conservative 3rd party, active participation in local/state government with demands for a new convention, etc., We've had a good run, Rome took centuries to fall, we've managed to do it in less than 1 but then again Rome didn't have big screen T.V's and huge numbers of entertainment choices to occupy their minds.

My choice for theme song would be a Scottish bag pipe corps playing "Amazing Grace" I think that's appropriate.

The Obama Theme Song from

Gang Green

Whoever Said it dose not matter
if you win or lose
Was never told
That Winning is Best for you

And whoever said people in Glass houses
Shouldn't throw stones
Should have picked better material
To Build their homes.

I don't Believe IT
Were Kids but were not naive
I don't Believe it
I think their full of SH**

Whoever said Trust ME
Meant F U
Ted Kennedy once said
We'll Drive off that bridge
When we get to it.

Too many people
have this one big problem
WHenever they open their mouth
Only Bull Sh** comes out!

I want CONGRESS to stop taking it from ME, Steve. Where in the hell do you think the money's going to come from to PAY for all this crap the Dems are trying SO hard to GIVE us?

The 'Rich'? They're tapped out. Companies? They'll pass the costs along. Insurance companies? Yeah, that'll be the day - they'll pass it along.

It's going to come out of MY wallet, and YOUR wallet. YOU may be glad to pay extra taxes - believe the Obama Promise of 'no taxes for folks under $250k' - but the money just isn't there, and it's not going to magically appear out of nowhere.

You can look to the left and
Look to the right
But you will live in danger tonite
When the enemy comes he will
Never be heard
Hell blow your mind and not say a word
Blinding lights--flashing colors
Sleepless nights
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll
(repeat)
The power-mad freaks who are
Ruling the earth
Will show how little they think youre worth
With animal lust theyll
Devour your life
And slice your word to bits like a knife
One last day burning hell fire
Youre blown away
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll
(repeat)
Know what its like
When youre taken for granted
There goes your life
Its so underhanded
If the man with the power
Cant keep it under control
Some heads are gonna roll
Some heads are gonna roll
