The Lyrics

A reminder to the everything for nothing crowd. Not only is freedom not free, very little else is either.
We have to fight the terrorist blight
But we don’t want no taxes
Don’t wanna lose the wars we choose
But we don’t want no taxes
We want the street all clean and neat
But we don’t want no taxes
We want a cop on every beat
But we don’t want no taxes

We want our roads to bear the loads
But we don’t want no taxes
We want the border put in order
But we don’t want no taxes
We don’t want fools, we need our schools
But we don’t want no taxes
The federal debt makes us all fret
But we don’t want no taxes

Squire - Good parody and good thinking! George H.W. Bush was misquoted. What he REALLY said was "Read my lips...no more Texans!". ;D

Time to figure out what we really want, like immediate snow removal, versus "luxuries" such as wars with no apparent ending, and see which ones we can dispense with. What we really need is more money to buy more Chinese made junk so we can get the economy rolling again.

The best part of the parody was the intro. ;-D

Some of us would prefer that instead of raising taxes, we quit meddling in foreign affairs (as G. Washington advised in his Farewell Speech); stop starting wars over same; end the insane - and futile -- War On Drugs; adhere to the inscription on the Statue of Liberty Enlightening The World [1] by not wasting resources fighting future immigrants when we're all past immigrants; and gradually weaning off of taxpayer-supported schools, which will *always* be subject to political meddling and Political Correctness -- perhaps by a voucher system that lets parents choose among public, private, and parochial schools, whereas currently, those who choose the latter two still have to pay for the former.

And a lot of other stuff Govt. shouldn't be doing, per the Constitution and per common sense. Still, good sentiments. I'd give you three Fives, but my taxes are so high that I can only afford Threes. (j/k! - 555)

Astute and pithy analysis... "Cut spending now-- but don't touch this program, or that one, or the other one over there..."
