The Lyrics

Democrats in the USA and MoveOn.org recently adopted the slogan "Forward" that was used by socialists and communists in the Progressive Era. TOS begins with that word and has a march cadence that is appropriate for moving together in lock-step toward a Utopian world. Rising debt and promised but unfunded future benefits may be tools to achieve that goal through loss of global influence and eventual fiscal collapse.

Note on pacing: Where I have more syllables than TOS, there are supporting notes.

Forward through their ag-en-da, with unbroken spine,
Move Progressive spirits, keeping all in line,
Grifting thrift-pent tre-as-ure. Charts as one have soared:
Manna for the services and money for the horde.

Forward through the history pages, with unbroken spine,
Move Progressive spirits, keeping all in line.

Wider grow the things they glom, chains of government;
For it we must labor, till our wealth is spent.
PhDs proclaim-ed it, experts testified;
Lord Keynes sang its glory and B.H.O. for it cried.

Forward through the history pages, with unbroken spine,
Move Progressive spirits, keeping all in line.

Thought that loans would prosper us; fraught with loans, we'll fall.
As we toss more, buy stuff, lose our triumph call.
Bound by plodding purposes that fun living stole,
Move we on through stormy weather to declining role.

Forward through the history pages, with unbroken spine,
Move Progressive spirits, keeping all in line.

For Ward Churchill - May 18, 2012 - Report this comment
The country is moving in a direction that a certain disgraced fake Indian (who formerly taught college students to hate America) would approve. Obama is a strong believer in American principles, SOUTH American!

FWC: A clever faux name to fit my title. Prof. Churchill and MA Senate aspirant Elizabeth Warren (aka Fauxcahontas for her once-claimed 1/32 Cherokee ancestry) are two fine examples of current Progressives.
