Friday's Playlist - Fuck Trump! Go vote.

For a long time I've resisted putting forth any political opinion on here, for two reasons. The first reason is that this is a music site, and music unites us regardless of who we chose to vote for. The second reason is that nobody cares about my opinions. I've been a lot more vocal on the Twitter account associated with the site, and I've shared a playlist or two that might have betrayed my leanings but essentially I've tried to keep this page free of anything overly topical or potentially divisive.

Well, fuck it. This is an important election, not just for the U.S.A. but for the entire world. And while I'm not American, and haven't lived there in over three decades, I am emotionally involved in the outcome of this election for numerous reasons. You have four days. Go vote!

I've always love the United States, its culture, its people, its republic. I've traveled there often, even lived there briefly as a child, have married an American and am the proud father of two bi-nationals. I've long admired the country as the cradle of modern democracy. And now that democracy is threatened by one man. You have four days. Go vote!

It's not about politics. It's beyond partisanship and opinions. How did the American people let a demented, inexperienced, serial liar, white supremacist criminal destroy everything we love about their country? He's undermined every institution, dismantled every check and balance and has taken incompetence, cronyism, and corruption to a level only seen in banana republics. The prospect of four more years of this absolute insanity is frightening. You have four days. Go vote! 

We know that this will be a highly contested election. It'll take months to figure out who actually won. And regardless of the outcome, there will be blood in the streets. This is a crucial moment for Democracy in the world. You have four days. Go vote!

Here's a playlist to motivate you to go vote the motherfucker out. The orange dunce must lose, and lose badly. It's not just an election, it's a message to the world. This is how you make America great again. You have four days. Go vote!

Enjoy, comment and share.
