What? Their Heads Don’t Explode?

Yes, let’s politicize children again.  (And they keep telling me that kids aren’t being propagandized these days.)

Here’s a little video that on the YouTube page says:

Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter.

What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?

At the time of this writing the video has 135 ‘likes’ and 1425 ‘dislikes’.  Here it is:

UPDATE: Oops! Looks like it was SO unpopular, they made it “private,” but I saved a copy. Here you go:

And here are the lyrics:

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

I’m still reminded of this video, though.

UPDATE – 10/29/12: What the upper video represents is a chorus of kids like this, from 2007:

Except he doesn’t think that adults “did (our) best.”

UPDATE:  11/4/12 – a comment left in the AR15.com thread on this topic wins One Internet:

We are the children of the future.
You are the hippies of the past.
You voted for Obama.
And he fucked us up the a**.
