Let's Connect Politics (You are the future) by Mr. O aka Kamal the Hip Hop Teacher
You’re the future!
I can’t leave you in the dark, without an electrician
you need to be the future, politicians
So when you speak,the world will listen.
When things aren’t going right in this nation
you can create legislation
Those old heads will leave and the world is yours
So you can create great laws
Either you’ll be the ruler or you’ll be ruled
So learn about law and politics in school
and let the world know,that you’re nobodies fool
It’s time for the new school to rule
When you v.o.t.e, you can keep the lights on the c.o.u.r.t
You can play basketball and futbol and tell the town council we want the lights on
In politics you have P.A.C’s, political action committees
It’s very similar to lobbies, interest groups demand their needs
fighting for their rights and communities
If you don’t vote, you can’t complain
and when your political, you bring about change
Politics is war without bloodshed, that just means it’s a battle of the talking heads
This just means we debate with our intellect
because there are some things that are people must get!
and being active, we’ll make sure of that
So you must use politics as a tool
You must make a change, cause we’re the new school.
The constitution divides the government-federal
into legislative, executive and judicial
To make sure no one has too much power
cause power corrupts into a world that’s sour
The legislative, makes the laws, it’s the congress
the house of representatives and the senate
The Executive, carries out the laws, the President, VP and the cabinet
The Judicial, evaluates laws, it’s the supreme court, and other courts
If you don’t learn the constitution, it’s not my fault
The constitution is one document you should know.
In case you gotta deal with the judge or po po
you gotta show people that you know your rights
and for your community you have to fight
Always remember, everything's political
So step up front cause your the leader of the new school
