“Rich Men North of Richmond” was the most listened to track in the world in the past 24 hours.
There are hundreds of millions of plays of this American working man’s protest song.
Sung by an off-the-grid farmer in the countryside with his dogs.

‘The Rich Man North of Richmond’
Anthony uses the lyrics of “Rich Men North of Richmond” to express the frustration of millions of working-class Americans as he attacks politicians, welfare recipients, and taxes.
“These rich guys north of Richmond / Lord knows they all just want complete control / Want to know what you think / Want to know what you do / And they don’t think you know, but me Know that you do,” he sings. “‘Cause your dollar ain’t s***, and it’s infinitely taxed / ‘Cause rich people north of Richmond.”
Another line of the song says, “Lord, we’ve got people on the street, they’ve got nothing to eat and fat milkmen on welfare.” “Well gosh, if you’re 5 feet 3 inches and weigh 300 pounds, you shouldn’t be paying tax for your bag of Fudge Rounds.”
“Your dollar ain’t shit and it’s taxed unlimited / ‘Cause rich people north of Richmond,” he sings at a different point.

liberals lose their minds
Independent It was told that the Left has raised issues on social media regarding some of these songs.
One user commented, “‘Rich Men North of Richmond’ is not a song for the working class.” “It’s a reactionary tune that perpetuates fatphobia and the classic ‘welfare queen’ trope that popularized [former US president Ronald Reagan], It vaguely criticizes the rich, yet directly/incorrectly blames the poor for screwing up the system.
Another user commented, “‘Rich Men North of Richmond’ is a perfect example of right-wing populist ideology.” “There is a vague nod against elites keeping working people down, but the alleged mechanism by which they are keeping them down is giving their tax dollars to ‘undeserving’ poor people.”
“Nothing sums up class consciousness like a song where the entire middle verse is about how the poor can’t eat because of fat welfare recipients,” wrote a third user. The beginning of the song totally gets you thinking.” There’s going to be a solid political issue, so I thought he meant something like ‘corporate fat cat,’ but no, he just meant fat lamao. What a strange misdirected anger.”
Unfortunately for these haters, “Rich Men North of Richmond” remains a huge hit, garnering over 16 million views. youtube Since its video dropped just a week ago.

“In the past, Oliver struggled with mental health and alcohol addiction. About a month ago, in the depths of despair, Howerton wrote, Oliver got down on his knees and began to cry. “Although he was not a religious man, that night he promised God that he would be at peace if he would help him fulfill his dream.”
He further added, “Oliver had been sober for about 30 days when someone approached him and asked him to come record a song for his YouTube channel.” “That song was ‘Rich Men North of Richmond.’ Within days the song went viral on social media.
