"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

I was a Beatles fan for much of my life beginning about the time I reached High School. In particular I loved the songs (music, lyrics, perspective) of John Lennon, specifically the song Imagine. But recent events have made me take another look at what could perhaps be categorized as his greatest work.

Given that those in power in America, and around the world, are products of the "60's" and "70's", and given that they are socialists and communists with a radical agenda, I asked myself this question. Is it possible that these people took the song "Imagine" and built an ideology around it? As their obsession with the concepts inherent in that song became stronger and their ideology began to take shape, many of them gave speeches that contained radical ideas related to population control, one-world government, radical "rights" for animals, and others. Now these same people are trying to take control of our lives through an unprecedented level of liberty infringing legislation and unparalleled power-grabs. Here are some facts...

"Imagine" is the official song of Amnesty International - Founded in 1961, AI has campaigned successfully in recent years for the International Criminal Court and a UN Torture Treaty.

In the Iranian left movement, the song usually relates to Mansoor Hekmat and his Worker-Communist Party of Iran. The WPI plays the song in all of its meetings and demonstrations and in its TV channel.

The song is played repeatedly throughout every episode of the Freedom from Religion Foundation's, Freethought Radio. The nonprofit Freedom From Religion Foundation works to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism (the rejection of any belief in a personal god or gods. It is in use in the fields of Christian apologetics and general liberal theology), and to promote the constitutional principle of separation between church and state. Since 1978, the Foundation has acted on countless violations of the separation of state and church, and has taken and won many significant complaints and important lawsuits to end state/church entanglements and challenge the “faith-based initiative.”

The song's lyrics, translated into Spanish, appear next to a statue of Lennon in a park in Havana, Cuba, referred to as John Lennon Park.

Here are the lyrics (minus the refrain). Think about what they conceptualize, and what has been happening in our country over the past 40 odd years. Think about the world-wide implications and the international push for one world government (nothing to kill or die for), no religion (only Muslim which is spreading virally around the globe), and "redistribution of wealth" ( a brotherhood of man). Then you decide...

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

Wake Up America!
