FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE A DONOR – Parody of Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover





 
We’re seeing some major shifts taking place in the political landscape and one of the main issues is big money in politics. A small handful of progressives. exemplified by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have rejected corporate donations and PAC money as a matter of belief and principle. This has resulted in a copycat strategy among many establishment democrats who are pretending to do the same with neither the belief nor the principles to back it up. It’s easy to tell the difference. If Goldman-Sachs says they are ok with the candidacy you can take that as a very bad sign.

LYRICS to FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE A DONOR

The problem with politics is corporate banditry.

No other problems can be solved in that reality.
The most important struggle is to get our system free.
There must be fifty ways to leave a donor.

Big money in politics behaves addictively
and those who are not addicts are attacked like AOC,
‘cause the controlling wealth is fearful of a new decree
where there are fifty ways to leave a donor.
Fifty ways to leave a donor.

Donations with a cap, Hap.
Secret donors gotta go, Joe.
A watchdog with bite, right?
To get us all free.
Let the billionaires sob, Bob.
Put an end to their snow job.
Corruption can’t be, Lee.
just listen to me. 



Just try be real, Neil.
Overturn CU, Lou.

Smack down that PAC, Jack.
It’s time to agree.
Ain’t right or left, Steph.
Don’t live at loot’s behest.
Be like AOC, Lee.
Let that be the key.

Lip service is not working though that is what they will try.
But there’s a way to see right through a cleverly told lie.
Those who place themselves for sale cannot be your your ally.
They’ve got to know the fifty ways.

It’s time to make demands and use our power to intrude,
to pass a new amendment that cannot be misconstrued.
Tell your reps a thousand times, though they will think it rude

there must be fifty ways to leave a donor.
Fifty ways to leave a donor.

Donations need a cap, Hap
Secret donors gotta go, Joe
A watchdog with bite, right?
to get us all free
Let the billionaires sob, Bob,
Put an end to their snow job
Corruption can’t be, Lee
Just listen to me.



Just try be real, Neil
Overturn CU, Lou

Smack down that PAC, Jack
It’s time to agree
Ain’t right or left, Steph
Don’t live at loot’s behest
Be like AOC, Lee
that is the key.

    Really appreciated this whole production, Don. Excellent use of the AOC clips. Isn’t she something? A real statesman in training! She’ll be ready for the presidency in 2028, when she’s old enough.
