Conscientious Objector song from Feminist in Hollywood (Political Rally Scene)

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. " -- Declaration of Independence

"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." -- Article I, The Bill of Rights (Amendment I, U.S. Constitution)

"All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient." -- Article I, Section 2, Bill of Rights, Texas Constitution


To the tune of my favorite EMF song "Unbelievable"
(Click here for midified music: 30K or 50K)

You can't lock a person in prison
Saying weed's against the law
Then claim religious freedom exists
By the First Amendment clause

The Declaration of Jefferson
Was written down on hemp
To guarantee my government
Respects my -- CONSENT

You can't dictate
Your moral codes then separate
The church and state - It's

Conservatives hate abortion
While liberals can't stand guns
They both demand the right
The freedom to choose
The poison they want
We can't speak of
God or Prayer in schools, but
It's okay
To bow and pray
To Judges
Who make rules

You can't dictate
Religious rules then separate
The church and state - It's

Fencing off Texas
Waste of my taxes
Policing the borders
Harassing poor workers
Oppressing fellow Mexicans
Less than equal citizens
Is it wrong to be Christian
To love
the world
and everyone equally
To live by Grace
and Charity
The price we pay 
for Liberty

(Who made up these laws?
They're unconstitutional!) 

You ban a couple from marriage
Making love against the law
Despite the right to assemble in peace
By the First Amendment clause

I'm a Conscientious Objector
I won't fund the wars you start,
State executions, BATF, or
Erotic modern art

You can't dictate
Where taxes go, then separate
The church and state
(Both sides want their way)
You can't mandate
Immoral codes, then separate
The church and state - It's

It's so unconstitutional
It's Unconstitutional*

*NOTE: It is the Editor's opinion that any legislation invoking religious issues (such as drug legalization, immigration, abortion, execution, same-sex marriage, and public funding of schools, art, prisons, or military defense) is unconstitutional, unless based on the consent of the citizens and taxpayers affected by such policies.
