There is nothing would motivate me to vote for any of them.

Therefore, the day after Election Day, I'll be listening to the Austin Lounge Lizards "We've Been Through Some Crappy Times Before" and Norah Jones "My Dear Country".

Any tune that doesn't get pulled after objections by the artist!

I voted for Santorum's song... nice countyish song, seemed fitting.

Ted Cruz... ug! After the first verse (and that horrible vocalist) I had to quickly turn it off lest I barf up my oatmeal! "Hated it" snap!

Ben Carson... cool song... cool artist... too cool for Carson. Doesn't quite match the mental image I have of him, especially now that I've seen the Jesus picture that begs to be made into a Christmas card via the "Awkward Family Photos" gang.

The Donald... what can I say? Dee Snider's "We're Not Going to Take it!" A singing clown for a clown... and I mean that in the most affectionate way. The song totally fits, it's the message of Trump and it's kinda fun.

Rick Perry... I dunno... sounds better suited to the grunts in the WWE... Perry's gone anyway now right?

Still shaking my head at Ted Cruz... I need a shower... in bleach...or a decontamination chamber! Gak!

Excellent and well done! I voted for this one because it was written for Ted Cruz and not a song from someone else, i.e. Twisted Sister, etc.

Agreed. I think this one should be made the official GOP theme song and they can all use it.
