    Greetings!

    I would like to say hello to all you guys and look forward to discussing all matters political.

    I am a staunch conservative and libertarian with only one caveat.

    I love the Soviet National Anthem, the melody is so much more powerful then ours it makes me wonder why we are still using a poem, and its a no brainer why the left seems to embrace this beautiful piece to hide the stench of their policies. Other then that, I must say Obama and the dems are going to WRECK this country if we don't our act together.

    I'm aware of the history of the history of the star spangled banner but from a pure musical standpoint the soviet hymn is considerably more powerful, and its ability evoke pride, glory and general hair standing uppedness is unmatched imo.

    that version you posted is a horrible version though.

    As a poem the star spangled banner is awesome and it is very moving, but as a song I feel meh.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Can I do Gunny's Job now? Save the politics for you're future posts and not in your intro to the forum.

    Did I do good Boss?

    :lol:

    I'm just an American who leans right of center financially and foreign policy wise and a lil left of center socially.

    Nope sorry disagree. The S.S.B. beats the Soviet one by a mile and then some. imo.

    Of course the soviet version was crappy. :D
