I Believe Merle Haggard is a Hero to the Cause of Liberty, Why Hasn't The Hag Been featured in Campaigns yet?

Merle has been putting out some songs lately with lyrics that sound a whole lot more friendly to freedom than the stuff you usually hear from mainstream artists. This music resonates with southern conservatives and spreads the message of liberty at the same time.

Sadly enough, I think a liberty campaign featuring haggard could help someone primary Corker, Alexander, Graham, or the rest of the southern neo-cons.

Merle's songs "Where did America Go?" "Where's all the freedom that we're fighting for?" "America First", "Are the Good Times Really Over" and "That's the news" are a great way to casually pass on a message of liberty to others. Take a listen and tell me what you think. Enjoy!

“The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” - Ron Paul

Are you kidding me

I love Merle and his songs. Always have. Reagan was the only one who liked him I think. Thank you for your post.

Maybe he's changed, maybe he's just looking for a buck.

His lyrics always seemed to sway with the political breeze or follow the media's agenda.

Let's not forget Okie from Muskogee "We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee"-(Let's see upvotes for Merle around here now Lol. God forbid he trash pot.) and "We don't burn our draft cards down on mainstreet" these lines followed later by the idiotic oxymoronic line - "We like livin' right, and being free"

And Walkin on the Fightin Side of Me. This is uneducated neocon propaganda.

These to name just a couple.

I always liked his music, but many of his songs have a neo-con streak in them. Maybe he has changed and wised with age , but I think his soul goes where ever the dollars are myself.

Same with Toby Kieth. He's politically clueless.

I get what you're saying, but Haggard is no Toby Kieth

I can admit that I think 'Okie from Muskogee' was written only to please his following and make money. I think Merle started to wake up during the economic crises of the late 70's and early 80's when he wrote 'Are the good times really over for good?'. His new songs keep getting better and better and I only expect more good things from him.

Charlie Daniels is another country artist that has awakened recently. In 2001 Charlie wrote "This ain't no rag it's a flag and we don't wear it on our head" but he recently wrote this song called "Behold a pale horse".

You might be right about Merle, but you can't seriously compare lyrics like "Why don't we liberate these United States","I wish a buck was still silver",and "Where's all the freedom that we're fighting for?" to Toby Kieth's "We'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way", "We can see clearly through our big black eye, so we lit up you're world like the fourth of July".

Even Haggard's "You're walking on the fighting side of me, harping on a way of life our fighting men have fought and died to keep" lyrics offer a much better message than anything Toby Kieth has written. Being from Nashville, I hate and despise Toby Kieth and the mockery he has made of country music. He is an embarrassment.

With songs like this, how can you not love The Hag?

He's one of the greats no doubt.
