prepared by "Democrats for Better Government," Rio Grande Valley, Texas, 1964.
Government is my shepherd,
Therfor I need not work
It alloweth me to lie down on a good job.
It leadeth me beside still factories;
It destroyeth my initiative.
It leadeth me in the path of a parasite for politics sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of laziness and deficit-spending,
I will fear no evil, the Government is with me.
It prepareth economic Utopia for me, appropriating earnings of my own grandchildren.
It filleth my head with false security;
My cup runneth over.
Surely the Government should care foe me all the days of my life!
So I shall dwell in a fool's paradise forever.
Editor's Note: We should have listened to them 46 years ago, they were right.
