An ode to Senate candidate Clint Didier

Here’s something that can play on those joint radio spots: A country song has been written for Clint Didier’s Senate campaign.

Listen to “Hell To Pay.”

The song went up on his website Thursday evening. Campaign consultant Doug Simpson wrote it and a band he knows, the Watchmen, performed it, said another of Didier’s consultants, Kathryn Serkes.

“We were talking to them about Clint and they wanted to do a song,” Serkes said.

“I think the subtitle is ‘Didier’s D.C. Ode.'”

Sample lyrics:

“You sold us out, you crossed the line/ when you took our wealth and you told us lies/ You walked on the law that belongs to us /And you took away the heart of In God We Trust”

“It’s time to restore our great legacy/ He died on the cross to set us free”

“My name is Clint, won’t you hear my plea / and help 86 take back this great country”

No. 86 was Didier’s number as a tight end in the NFL.

    “You took our wealth and told us lies” Are they referring to Didier’s $273,000 in farm subsidies he took out of taxpayers’ pockets??
    .
    Face it, the rich in the US, Didier included, pay among the lowest tax rate in the industrialized west, while middle class families stuggle to figure out how to send their kids to college, while keeping their health care.
    .
    Silly season is upon us……

    And the beat goes on with lies…

    Didier did NOT receive $273, 000 in farm subsidies:

    Lies called Facts is a new one. Learn about Farmers and their taxes:

    “Farmers and ranchers are disadvantaged under the income tax system.”

    VOTING FOR CLINT DIDIER FOR US SENATE.

    The words to this song ring true in the heart of so many Americans—our govt. is corrupt and out-of-line. The people representing us no longer listen or care about what the people want, what’s right or anything else that is morally correct.

    Across the nation, we are electing good, honest folks like Clint Didier to take this country back and let the people rule once again–protect and preserve our Constitution, end big govt. and this socialist train ride.

    ELECTING CLINT DIDIER because I still believe America is a great country and worth saving. To learn where Didier stands on the issues important to you visit his website at:

    GO CLINT DIDIER!

  7. backtobasics says:

    “The Times reported total government payments to Didier of $272,927. But of that, $111,905 was a claim on a crop-insurance policy he had paid for. You can’t count that as a subsidy. Another $51,135 was a conservation grant for about a quarter of the cost of replacing steel pipe with plastic pipe — an environmental project the government wanted him to do. You can count that if you like.

    The classic subsidies, for wheat and corn, amounted to $103,888 — and were paid over 14 years. That averages out to $7,421 a year on a farm operation in which one year’s water, power and taxes add up to more than $100,000.”

    Pay out on a paid for insurance policy is not a subsidy.

    I am afraid his lack of compassion and his lack of understand of how much trouble the American people are suffering has lost my vote. We either stand together as Americans or allow cold hearted, ignorant teabaggers destroy what our country is known for around the world….Our Compassion for others.
