Music has the power to reach the masses!!! Remember the 60s! Kucinich's campaign is not just about the presidency but about a larger movement to end the Iraq occupation and take back our country from the greedy and give to the needy.
I am wondering who is organizing the free Kucinich concert in the area?
We must bypass our corrupt,censored media!!
Free concerts are the way to reach the youth, especially those not reading the internet and up on things ya know. The youth are not voting! and yet they will be the ones affected by W's war on peace and prosperity. If they are not drafted, they will have to move to India to get a job.
We must reach out to the youth, and together we can take back our country.
Willie Nelson is speaking out for Dennis:
"I don't really feel like that I have to shut up and not say what I'm thinking because this is, you know, the land of the free," he said. "And we intend to keep it that way."
Tim Reynolds and friends are playing free concerts for Dennis.
even the repubs(James Pinkerton) agree...
"Nonetheless, there was something weirdly interesting about the Kucinich Krew, as I saw them at Keene State, and also, earlier, at the University of New Hampshire, where a Kucinich bongo ensemble pounded away for hours. These folks had energy, even if most of them couldn't -- or wouldn't -- vote on Tuesday, let alone in November.
That energy of theirs, of course, came from music. It's a point made by the late Allan Bloom in his 1987 book, The Closing of the American Mind: if there's one thing that distinguishes young people of the modern era from past eras, it's the ubiquity of music. Two decades ago, Bloom was thinking of the Walkman -- which, of course, has now been augmented by various MP3 players and iPods.
All the campaigns routinely offer some sort of music at the beginning of their events. There's the occasional "Star Spangled Banner," but I've heard Coldplay, Van Halen, Journey, and even hipper-than-thou Outkast. But I've head nothing with the intensity of Kucinich's players."
It is time to revive the revolution! I'm too young to remember but...what happened after the vietnam war? Did the 'pro-war support the troops-let them die' folks ever apologize? Did the peace loving pro-justice protesters just let them get away with their ignorance and hypocricy? They were wrong then, and they are wrong now....and it might not hurt to remind people of this now and then!
The new music revolution is alive and well....
just listen to eddie vedder "people have the power" and you will be filled with energy!
now, let's organize...
