Z Trip - The time is right!
No one can deny the importance of this year's elections in the USA.
Albeit incredibly political in nature Straightup normally leaves it off our site and lets music speak volumes to our listeners. This time is the right time! No longer can we at Straightup sit back and idly watch a world go down the gurgler without lending our support to a political candidate whom we believe is the last hope to change systems in place. Barack Obama. The last hope for any attempt to bring about justice, freedom and peace. Maybe.
Take it away Z-Trip.
"Recently, Shepard Fairey and I threw some fundraisers for the Obama campaign. We called them "The Party for Change".
I've been wanting to put the mix I've been doing at these shows online, in hopes of spreading the word to people who need to hear it most. So, here it is:
I encourage you to download it and pass it along to anyone you think should hear it. Feel free to burn copies, share it with friends, family, co-workers, strangers, and especially anyone you know is on the fence about this election. I'm also putting out a radio friendly version, in case anyone wants to broadcast it.
Please share the message. Educate those who may not know what is really going on. There is still time.
If you, or anyone you know, isn't registered to vote, I encourage you to make it a priority and fix that before it's too late. This election is WAY too important for anyone to not get involved. If you need more information on how and where to register, vote, or participate, please check the links below.
I honestly feel if we make our voices heard, this time WILL be different."
Wow that's a pretty inspiring & eclectic mix. Go Obama!!!
As far as I know, I am not a robot.
