The Ron Paul fundraiser's poetry may be doggerel, but surely it's no worse than the effort by Ms. Angelou at the Clinton 1993 inauguration, which concluded:

Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes, into
Your brother's face, your country
And say simply
Very simply
With hope
Good morning.

Comparing that poem to Angelou's is absurd. Note that Paul's campaign poem is selling virtual campaign bricks to a non-existent birthday road; Donors are memorialized on a badly formatted page on Ron's website.


1776 was a memorable year

It was a time when men stopped living in fear

When 13 colonies believed freedom was a sacred word

And individuals woke up and stopped being part of a herd

When men were inclined not to accept their fate

Of tyranny, taxation, and oppression from the State

A new system of government was diligently selected

Where Life, Liberty, and Property were guaranteed and protected

A Constitution was written and set a new nation free

We were a beacon of liberty for the world to see

This Republic has been alive for over 200 years

But the machine of oppression has many gears

The era of liberty has been all but too brief

Where the history of despotism is long and full of grief

We have struggled together through thick and thin

If our nation is to be destroyed it will come from within

When forgotten is the price that patriots pay

Slowly, incrementally our freedom will be taken away

When a government can engage in deceit and lies

And employ the use of domestic spies

When economic liberty has been managed and coerced

And fiat currency fills everyman's purse

When wars are undeclared with no end in sight

And the law of the land is the rule of might

Now the road to serfdom is long and hidden

But one that is well trod and often ridden

For when history is forgotten and facts become skewed

Once more can the many become subjected by the few

But do not lose hope do not despair

Humanity can triumph if it remains aware

Our Founding Fathers had clearly saw

That all men have rights before God and Law

So let us not be complacent amidst these deceptive ruses

Men have fought and died against such abuses

To omnipotent government there remains a solution

It is the Ron Paul Revolution!
