Special thanks to Matt Wuerker, Jeff Koterba, Rodrigo, Danziger, Matt Mahurin, Polyp, and Seppo for donating their cartoons for this project. There is a tip jar, if you would like to donate to this project. All funds will go to paying the cartoonists. There are more cartoons that I would like to add, budget permitting. There are also cartoonists who donated their cartoons whom I would like to pay. Thanks! Here are the lyrics to the song... If your funds come from super pacs You will never have our backs As their puppet you will be Part of the plutocracy You won’t support a living wage Or take a stand on climate change You can’t endorse health care for all If you’re at their beck and call If you sell out to Charles and Dave You’ve already dug your grave Don’t bury us along with you Like narcissists and cowards do Dark money is your ticket now Their motives are your sacred cow If you accept their bribery You cannot advocate for me You may flip-flop, dive and swerve Two masters you can never serve If you’re in bed with companies That outsource labor overseas Creating jobs will never be One of your priorities And if your campaign is embroiled with polluters and big oil You’ll be a climate change denier In other words, you’ll be a liar Campaign finance exploitation Could be the downfall of our nation If you dance to their applause You won’t endorse disclosure laws Billionaires have rigged the game Your laws will all be in their name Do you think we can forget That you’re forever in their debt? You may flip-flop, dive and swerve Two masters you can never serve One candidate won’t take their bribes Or drink the Kool-aid you imbibe He gets his funds from all of us Who else, really, can we trust? You may flip-flop, dive and swerve Two masters you can never serve Issues covered in this song include...super pac money, Citizens United, campaign finance, Bernie Sanders campaign, environmental issues and big oil, outsourcing, single payer health care, the Koch Brothers, anonymous donors, dark money, grass roots campaigns, corruption, corporate personhood, and climate change. #BernieSanders #FeelTheBern #UniteBlue #No #BernieSanders2016 #Bernie2016 #CitizensUnited
