I am surprised that my fellow blogger Sandy here at Va Right! has not already posted this. There is little about Congressman Ron Paul that escapes his notice. Perhaps Metallica will do a version. Not that the song is bad, it’s actually quite good. But Kirk Hammett would be a brilliant addition with a bit more scream to the lead!
H/T to Daily Caller for the post:
It was only a matter of time, but someone’s finally gone and recorded a punk rock anthem for GOP presidential candidate and contrarian Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
Released on YouTube Wednesday, the song, written by musician Erik LaVergne and titled simply “Ron Paul Punk Rock Anthem,” is perhaps the first punk song in history to advocate Austrian School monetary theory.
“We know how to fix this mess,” LaVergne shouts. “Fire Ben and the printing press!”
And who best to fix this mess? “RON PAUL!” says the chorus. “RON PAUL!”
LaVergne said he was inspired to compose the song because of “lies, propaganda, empty promises, theft, corruption, endless war and economic failure; at the hands of our current and previous administrations.”
