I was born and raised independent/republican then I went out into the world, befriended a bunch of leftie musicians and realized that, in the macro view, most of us as people and a nation ultimately want to be in a similar place, we just disagree on how to get there in the micro view. I realize that sounds like a load of hippy feel-good-ery but I thinks it's true. As a nation, our political pendulum swings from the right to the left and back again. My political views have and continue to evolve and I've come the place personally where I don't savor the idea of being associated with one party over the other. The two dimensional, one club or the other, system feels old and tired to me. I'm in favor of good ideas that move us forward as a nation regardless of their origin. I'm in favor of ideas that translate into more freedom for everybody in our county and abroad. I feel like our former president had some pretty good ideas and I'm proud to've met him a couple years ago. I'm hoping for the best as we move into a new era as a nation and I'm going to do my best to frame my political views with the greater good of humanity in mind rather than one party or the other.

  • edgehillherbfarmBless you!
  • calebbhawkinsFor once I see something sensible from a musician about politics! I personally spent a number of years at odds with some of what Obama was pushing and I still don't agree with a lot of what the government has attempted from either party. My hope and prayer is that the government begins to have less influence on the success and failures of our people.
