"The Children of the Future" Think Romney Makes a Horrid President… But the Adults of the Present Know Obama Does


“The children of the future” are speaking out in a new campaign video, and they’re “kinda blaming you” for successfully voting Mitt Romney in as President of the United States.

Singing with blank expressions, they ask us all to “imagine an America where strip mines are fun and free, where gays can be fixed and sick people just die and oil fills the sea.”

This America allegedly has “endless wars” and a “sacked” Big Bird. “The Earth is cracked and the atmosphere is frying,” and we’re actively trying to kill “all the polar bears.” Parks are closed, the air is poisoned, homes are foreclosed and the rich get special government perks.

The song closes with this:

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad, we’re blaming you

The melodramatic and unsupportable postulating is bad enough, and the sophomoric rhyming certainly doesn’t make it any better.

But the biggest factor against the video is that America already has record numbers of foreclosed homes. It’s already hideously dumbed down, as evidenced by the “Obama Phone” lady, a real woman who is supporting the President’s re-election efforts just because he’s giving away “free” cell phones. Further proof of our intellectual deficiencies can be found in those emotionally stunted miscreants who are vandalizing property of supposed Romney supporters and posting death threats on Twitter against the candidate himself because the Republican would “ban tampons” if elected.

And that’s not to mention the nation’s monumental debt… or our prolonged, miserable unemployment situation … or our diminished status around the world, where terrorists know they can take their time leisurely stalking, torturing and murdering our ambassadorial staff without having to worry about any real repercussions.

In other words, Mitt Romney might make a bad president. We won’t know until he’s elected. But regardless of what the ridiculous song says, he can’t possibly be worse than the one we have now.

    Imagine an America where the young understood the creation of wealth/liberty and their way of life, including the energy intensive technology behind their sex change operations or the entertaining ideas behind Lady Gaga's heavenly hermaphrodite. They are being conditioned like dumb animals to feel that they can use techniques and technology to change their sex, yet never their sexual desires. Led like lambs to their fiscal slaughter under Obama Inc...

  2. Facts and logic unfortunately aren't taught very much in schools these days. After I posted "I hope we like what we asked for" on Facebook, a gay friend of mine said that he asked for equality and he loves that. I responded by asking him if he was happy with our completely uncertain future, our shaky international standing, our waning ability to trust our leaders, etc. And he just said "Let's hope for the best." That's what it's all about to liberals: Hope. Not history, not science, not reason. Just hope, which doesn't go very far all by itself.
