"Freedom" Written by Paul McCartney after 9-11.

This is my right, given by God, to live a free life, to live in freedom.
Talking about freedom, talking about freedom, I will fight for my right to live in freedom.
And anyone, who wants to take it away, will have to answer, because this is my right.
And were talking about freedom, talking about freedom, I will fight for my right to live in freedom

Anything by the U.S. Marine Band (The President's Own), or by the U.S. Air Force Band (America's Own), directed by COL Lowell Graham, an acquaintance of mine. Both organisations have vocal music as well.

Bruce Springsteen is a BIGTIME lib.

I thought Kid Rock(Michigan's own) was libertarian. I know he's not a lib through, and I think NUGENT influenced him. I know they are friends.

he called himself a republican in the 2000 elections, as for the boss, i dont know squat about him, but the song itself, although perhaps not sung by a patriot, seems patriotic for purpose of this thread.

"God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood. My daughter's class performed this song at a public assembly in our little country town in Tejas in 1986, full choir of little (pre-hormonal) angels in our little auditorium. Background music recorded by my hubby's band. There was not a dry eye in the audience. And to hear it become popular 15 years later.....well, it brought it all home again.

"Okie from Muskogee" - Merle Haggard "I Can't Drive 55" - Sammy Hagar "Cat in the Kettle" - Weird Al Yankovic, a parody to "Cats in the Cradle." "Another One Rides the Bus" - Weird Al, a parody to Queens' "Another One Bites The Dust." "God Bless America" - Kate Smith "Ol' Dogs and Children and Watermelon Wine" - Tom T. Hall "Lift Up Your Heads" - Handel "We're Not Gonna Take It" - Twisted Sister, though he's a lib. "Ain't That America (Little Pink Houses For You And Me)" - John Mellancamp, and that's debateable. "What a Wonderful World" - Louis Armstrong

Very good choice. I would have never come up with that.

"Capitalism" by Oingo Boingo. Many of you may not know this 80's new wave type band but they were hardcore CAPITALISTS. Some lyrics from the above song:

You're just a middle class socialist brat
From a suburban family and you never really had to work,
Now you tell me that you got to get back to the struggling masses, whoever they are,
You talk, talk, talk about suffering and pain,
Your mouth is bigger than your entire brain,
What the he!! do you know about suffering and pain, you dumb f#*k?

I do not mean to offend anyone with the lyrics but thought that they were appropriate given that socialistas are the bane of conservatives. The band is probably more libertarian than conservative, but they obviously share the conservative's disdain for things collective.

You say you want a revolution, well, you know, we all want to change the world. You tell me that it's evolution, well, you know, we all want to change the world. But when you talk about destruction, don't you know you can count me out. Don't you know it's gonna be alright. Alright. Alright. You say you got a real solution, well, you know, we'd all love to see the plan. You ask me for a contribution, well, you know, we're doing what we can. But when you want money for people with minds that hate, all I can tell you is brother you have to wait. Don't you know it's gonna be alright. Alright. Alright. You say you'll change the constitution, well, you know, we all want to change your head. You tell me it's the institution, well, you know, you better free your mind instead. But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow. Don't you know know it's gonna be alright. Alright. Alright.

"Get Over It" by The Eagles

Get Over It
I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
They point their crooked little fingers ar everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if I gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
You don't want to work, you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it
Get over it
If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it, Get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
You're makin' the most of your losin' streak
Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
Complain about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

Get over it
Get over it
It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
Get over it, get over it
