Change the Maryland State Song

Eliminate the current Maryland state song, "Maryland! My Maryland!," and hold a contest to select a new state song.

Why is this important?

The Maryland state song is as bad as the Confederate flag. It calls Abraham Lincoln a tyrant, cheers for the thugs in Baltimore who attacked and killed American soldiers on their way to defend Washington, D.C., and urges Maryland to join Virginia in the Confederate States of America. It is a symbol of treason and support for slavery. It should be eliminated and a contest held to select a new Maryland state song.
