Great discussion on Real Time with Bill Maher … stop waiting for your elected officials to do the right thing. How about you stand up and FORCE them to do the right thing. Send a message loud and clear … get engaged. Boycott businesses that you find morally repugnant, join advocacy groups for causes you believe in etc.
I really like what Tom Morello – former Rage Against the Machine guitarist – says above. Solid guy.
And if you didn’t catch his piece in the Rolling Stone about Paul Ryan – you can HERE:
“Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn’t understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn’t understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.
Ryan claims that he likes Rage’s sound, but not the lyrics. Well, I don’t care for Paul Ryan’s sound or his lyrics. He can like whatever bands he wants, but his guiding vision of shifting revenue more radically to the one percent is antithetical to the message of Rage.”
