America Today Described 70-Years-Ago in Satirical Poem

<SNIP>

This was published back on November 4, 1949 and is so true today as you will see:

ODE TO THE WELFARE STATE

Mr. Truman's St. Paul, Minn., pie-for-everybody speech last night reminded us that, at the tail-end of the recent session of Congress, Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-Ohio) jammed into the Congressional Record the following poem, describing its author only as 'a prominent Democrat of the State of Georgia":

DEMOCRAT DIALOG

Father, must I go to work?

No, my lucky son.

We're living now on Easy Street

On dough from Washington.

We've left it up to Uncle Sam,

So, don't get exercised.

Nobody has to give a damn—

We've all been subsidized.

But if Sam treats us all so well

And feeds us milk and honey,

Please, daddy, tell me what the hell

He's going to use for money.

Don't worry, bub, there's not a hitch

In this here noble plan—

He simply soaks the filthy rich

And helps the common man.

But, father, won't there come a time

When they run out of cash

And we have left them not a dime

When things will go to smash?

My faith in you is shrinking, son,

You nosy little brat;

You do too damn much thinking, son,

To be a Democrat.

This was written nearly 70-years ago and yet it is exactly what is happening with today's Democrats.

The poem’s rather perfect
And I say this without glee
Because we will soon detect
This thread to stay leftist free

I could not be a Democrat
No, not a chance, not me
My head's not full of tallow-fat
I have a brain, you see
And nobody who has a brain
That's working properly
Could ever be a Democrat
No, that could never be

Reminds me of a quote by Churchill (maybe)"If you are not a liberal at age 20 you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at age 35 you have no brains"
Some say it was not Churchill, but someone else.
