WE'RE GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD Music and lyrics by Lily Campbell, age 9

We're gonna spread happiness
We're gonna spread freedom
Obama's gonna change it
Obama's gonna lead 'em

We're gonna change it
And rearrange it
We're gonna change the world.

SING FOR CHANGE
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Now's the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!


YES WE CAN
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Yes we can
Lift each other up
In peace, in love, in hope
Change! Change!

Its wrong to use inocent children who know nothing about politics to acheive power! Communist schools use this sort of thing to brain wash their children!

I was thinking the same thing. Whoever heard of a presidential candidate having children singing songs about them?

This is kinda creepy to me.

Reminds me of what you'd see in North Korea under Kim Jong Il, or in China under Chairman Mao.

All4One origianally posted,

<<Its wrong to use inocent children who know nothing about politics to acheive power! Communist schools use this sort of thing to brain wash their children!>>

Innocent children, really? I would like to meet a completely innocent 9 year old.

<<who know nothing about politics>>

If 9 year old kids can understand religion on some appropriate level, then they can understand politics, too.

<<to achieve power>>

Not so much achieving power, as exerting influence. And that's wrong?

<<Communist schools use this sort of thing >>

Religious schools use this sort of thing to further their beliefs too. And thank God some are even able to help in the process of brain washing, as some need washing. Of course, kids ought to belong to parents, not the state. But if parents' choices produce distasteful politics in kids, so be it.

Be honest--is it the use of children that's wrong, or rather the expressed political stance we don't like? Children "used" in this capacity bring an instant emotional credibilty to the situation, and THAT is what makes us uncomfortable, especially if it's "power" on behalf of the wrong side. But Obama's camp thought of it first, so tought teats for the other side that wasn't as nimble.

But to be honest, I didn't listen to the song, just read the words. Maybe it was creepy, don't know. Hopefully no creepier than the stuff on network news.

Lets be honest about this Mr. Bennett.
If we had video of children singing the praises of McCain or Palin it would be all over the news to show what kooks they were!

Yeah I would have to agree, I rather got a sick feeling watching this.

He does so many things in that manner. Like getting law enforcement involved in stopping negative campaigning against him.

I have no idea how half this country is voting for him. I'm totally floored by this!!!

It's like he is pushing us and pushing us and pushing in that direction.
