Broward County, FL - Home of the Hanging Chad
With apologies to Marilyn and Alan Bergman

(sung the tune of  "The Way We Were" preferably by a never-worked-a-day-in-her-life, thinks-she-can-act-too, knows-what's-best-for-the-little-people singer)

Special interests line the pockets of my purse.
Kids, dogs and dead people -
The way we were elected.

Social programs give jobs and money to our comrades,

Let us keep the borders open -

The way we were elected.


Can it be that it was all so simple then,

Or have minorities switched party lines?

If we could overtax and spend again,

Notice - would they?  Could they?


Editorials may be beautiful and yet,

Election rules are painful to remember

We simply ask state judges to recount and forget.


So its Bill & Hillary

We will remember,

No values and instant residency -

The way we were elected;
The way we were elected.
