America and other world democracies are at a crossroads. One path leads to inclusion and love, the other path leads to exclusion and hate, bigotry, and racism. America has a both a beautiful and horrible past. We only see and discuss the beautiful and ignore our ugly past. The genocide and enslavement of 100 million natives reduced to about 350K by the late 1800s. Today, only 5 million exist. We brought over 2 million slaves and white supremacists regret that they are here. We brought over Asians to build our railroads and we hated and abused them when they served their purposes. We have a cruel and racist history that we do not want to deal with. We can not heal if we do not see how we became this way. We can work it out, if we become enlightened.

What Kinda of Country Do We Wanna Be?
Floyd Gonzales, February 23, 2013, completed October 4, 2017
8 bars: 4X (Bbm7 Fm7 Bbm7 Fm7 Ebm7)
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
It’s up to us, we are the people.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
Full of love or full of hate..

12 bars: 6X (Ebmaj7 Cm7 Bbmaj7)
Are we a country of equals
Or a country of unequals?
Are others inferior,
So that we can feel superior?
Do we welcome or invite,
Or chastise and despise?
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
It’s up to us, we are the people.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
Full of love or full of hate..
Do our gods unite us or do they divide us?
Does the color of our skin, unite us or does it divide us?
Does our hatred blind us, to what binds us?


What kinda of country do we wanna be?
It’s up to us, we are the people.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
Full of love or full of hate..
Are we a country that’s exclusive or inclusive?
Where humans are aliens and only English is allowed?
And, other languages and cultures are covered in a shroud?
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
It’s up to us, we are the people.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
Full of love or full of hate..
Do we fear those we don’t know?
Do we hate what we can’t see?
How did we learn to hate so easily?
All we want is a place to get along,
free and happily.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
It’s up to us, we are the people.
What kinda of country do we wanna be?
Full of love or full of hate..
