What song best sums up the previous year?

Is there a song that stands out to you that for any reason sums up the year 2005?
Unless you're over there nobody really knows what the facts are. It's all a matter of choice and which newspaper or TV news coverage you subscribe to. I don't think any of them let us know what's truly going on, because they don't even know.
"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." -Hermann Goering, NAZI Luftwaffa chief of staff, sentenced to death at Nuremburg warcrimes trials (committed suicide)

Also, "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this Land, it will be in the Guise of fighting a Foreign Enemy" James Madison
"Take the leaders of the land,
make them know, to undrstand.
Put them all into a cage,
and let them fight the wars they rage."

The Wailing Souls
Man, these founding Father's of ours were smart as hell. It appears that everything we are warned about is coming to pass. Read the Thomas Jefferson quotes on this thread as well. It's happening right under your right-winged noses.
I think I'm trying to say that we are up against an intractible enemy and also remind what Churchill said decades ago. Anyone who is not a liberal when young doesn't have a heart. But anyone who has not become conservative once fully grown up doesn't have a brain.

"If you are not liberal by the time you are 20 you have no heart. If you are not conservative by the time you are 40 you have no brain."

This quote has been attributed to Churchill many times, but no one is certain and it is not found in any of his writings. Just thought you would like to know that for future reference.
