I happened across this song by Merle Haggard called "America First". It seemed to me it was written about Ron Paul's campaign, but it was created much earlier. What do you think?

Why don't we liberate these United States
We're the ones who need it the worst
Let the rest of the world help us for a change
And let's rebuild America first

Our highways and bridges are falling apart
Who's blessed and who has been cursed
There's things to be done all over the world
But let's rebuild America first

Who's on the hill and who's watching the valley
Who's in charge of it all
God bless the Army and God bless our liberty
Dadgum the rest of it all

Yeah, men in position but backing away
Freedom is stuck in reverse
Let's get out of Iraq and get back on the track
And let's rebuild America first

Why don't we liberate these United States
We're the ones who need it the most
You think I'm blowing smoke
Boys it ain't no joke
I make twenty trips a year from coast to coast

Agreed.

The rest of the candidates are the rest of the world 1st, the United States 2nd, maybe 3rd or 4th (we have to make room for space explorations, after all! because that's a totally conservative ideal [that's a dig at Huckabee btw]).

I've never been a big country music fan, but THIS should definitely be RP's campain song!
