You're Gonna Pay . . . Someone's Got To

This music video is by Wilson Getchell.  The sound reminds me of Greenday or The Ramones but with a conservative fiscally-sound message.  I have always been surprised that many young people don't realize that they are the ones who will have to pay for all the government they support and their parents demanded.  They will pay through higher taxes and lower living standards.  Wake up grasshopper generation!  Regardless of what your helicopter mom told you there ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

My only criticism of the video is, how can you not include the cost of the two (or is it three?) wars the US is waging?  If you want to appeal to an idealistic younger generation, you have to include these misguided and prolonged wars when you talk about wasteful government spending otherwise you look like a shill for the neo-cons.  Which is more expensive to the billion millions, monkeys on coke or the kokane guns of Jamdown Town?
