These days, it seems facts, science, history and math are only believed in by one side!

lyrics

Facts have a well-known liberal bias
Specially in these times that try us
With a phase of crazy government acts
But no matter what made-up phrase they're trying
"Alternative facts" is the same as lying
So I'm a liberal 'cause I believe in facts

Math has a well-known liberal bias
You'd think that numbers would unify us
But adding seems to add to right wing wrath
They just keep giving fodder for comics
By clinging to voodoo economics
So I'm a liberal 'cause I believe in math

Science has a well known liberal bias
Even though deniers get all pious
Treating climate change with such defiance
But despite their willful idiocy
This is all we've got, there's no Planet B
So I'm a liberal 'cause I believe in science

Now I guess history has a liberal bias
Trump's latest statements horrify us
He thinks the cause of the Civil War is a mystery
Praising Andrew Jackson's bravery
Ignoring a minor detail like, hello, SLAVERY?
So I'm a liberal 'cause I believe in history

Other folks' laughter at us is hearty
We're the only country with a fact denying party
So I'm a Democrat 'cause I believe in science
I'm a liberal and a Democrat 'cause I believe in math
I'm a liberal Democrat snowflake 'cause I believe in history
And though the playin' field's far from even
Cause how do you counter flat out deceivin'?
I know we gotta try cause I believe in facts!
