2. It's Always Appropriate
It doesn't matter where I am, I do not hesitate to talk politics.

s it appropriate to discuss politics at a concert? especially when you have the microphone?

It is MOST appropriate when you have the microphone.

I often hear people say that rock and rollers should not voice their political opinions on stage.

HELLLLOOOO, rock and roll was born from political dissent. Doesn't anyone remember the late 60's, early 70's??

The anti-war music was extremely moving and thought provoking.
Remember Country Joe & the Fish, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and a ton of other musicians that put Viet Nam in the forefront with their music?

In this election, it's important to be vocal about politics. Too many people are not informed of all of the bullshit this administration is responsible for.

Sing it loud and sing it clear, Bush Must Go!
