Dave T Music, Politics and Mudcat (94* d) RE: Music, Politics and Mudcat 18 Apr 99


I normally stay out of these discussions and stick with the "purely musical" threads, but what the heck...Like Moonchild I tend to be a social liberal, fiscal conservative. However, I was a bit young to be a "hippie", was raised Protestant Christian and am a 43 year old man. I've voted both Liberal and PC (that's Progressive Conservative NOT politically correct, which I hope I will never be). I have to say, I've never gone so far as to vote NDP (that's Canada's socialist party). I guess I just don't believe in having a bunch of bureacrats decide who gets what. It always seems to deteriorate into a self-serving mess. That being said, I sing many songs that would be considered "left" and firmly believe in everyone's right to live with dignity, honesty and integrity.
It seems to me that "left" and "right" labels too often cloud the issue and are used as excuses to either justify or villify peoples actions. Let people's actions speak rather than their words or political stripe.

Thanks to Rick for an interesting thread.
