2020 Campaign Song?

You know how they say that history repeats itself?

In the 1960s, a liberal anti-American movement swept America. Thousands were protesting US involvement in the Vietnam War and more. The hippie and flower power movement basically rebelled against any and all authority. Many believed at the time, that these protesting liberals would be the ruination of America with their anarchical ideology.

In many ways, what was happening in the 1960s is very similar to what is happening in America today. Today’s Democrats are rebelling against most of the standard authority that has been the mainstay of America. Instead of turning to the widespread use of hallucinogenic drugs, like so many younger adults did in the 1960s, many of today’s younger adults are turning to socialism instead, which is also giving them hallucinations of a utopian world that is only a dream.

Like the 1960s, today’s America still has a core of patriotic conservatives who still love America and everything it has stood for and who takes offense to those who are running down our country and everything it stands for. Many of them are willing to stand up and fight to protect America and many fear that it just may come to that.

So, as we enter into the campaign season for 2020 elections, I urge every conservative running for office to embrace a song written in 1969 by country music star Merle Haggard. He wrote the song in response to the many protests and America bashing going on at the time, just as so many Democrats are doing today.

Take a minute to listen to the song and follow along with the lyrics, listed below, to a song that should be played on every radio station in America and by every conservative running for office.

I hear people talkin’ bad,
About the way they have to live here in this country
Harpin’ on the wars we fight
And gripin’ ’bout the way things oughta be
And I don’t mind ’em switchin’ sides
And standin’ up for things they believe in
But when they’re runnin’ down our country, man
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down a way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down our country, hoss
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

I read about some squirrelly guy
Who claims that he just don’t believe in fightin’
And I wonder just how long
The rest of us can count on bein’ free
They love our milk and honey
But they preach about some other way of livin’
But when they’re runnin’ down our country, man
They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

They’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down our country, man
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me

You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
Runnin’ down the way of life
Our fightin’ men have fought and died to keep
If you don’t love it, leave it
Let this song that I’m singin’ be a warnin’
When you’re runnin’ down our country, hoss
You’re walkin’ on the fightin’ side of me
