Let’s impeach the president for abusing all the power we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door.
Let’s impeach the president for bending the facts to fit their new story
Of why we have to send our men to war.
Neil Young, born in Canada and living in the States, sings about about impeaching the US president on his forthcoming new Reprise Records release, Living with War. Why?
“I was waiting for someone to come along, some young singer 18 to 22 years old, to write these songs and stand up,” Young told the Los Angeles Times. “I waited a long time. Then, I decided that maybe the generation that has to do this is still the ’60s generation. We’re still here.”
Damn right. Let’s hear it for the true believers in the old guard. The active, vocal young deserve kudos, but too many youngsters are too focused on Fiddy, The OC, and Chris vs. Taylor vs. McPhee, ashion and celebrity obsessions and blissfully ignorant of the problems in the world around them and their responsibility to help create positive change. If all but a few in the new school refuse to take up the torch of speaking out and working for a better world, somebody’s got to do it.
Thanks to Neil Young for doing his protest-music part – I guess we do need him around anyhow.
