The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

We Could Have It All (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

If you could listen to my words
If I didn’t feel a victim of my appearance
We’d discover all possibilities, vast as the ocean
Like all great sea crews of the past
Land waits to be discovered in the present
Yet we don’t know we have access to it all

We’re too busy filling up holes with patches
In the past
But one captain can’t save two sinking ships
In the present
We could have it all, if we believed right now
In the future
