soularashs — October 31, 2008 — I'm grateful to have the right to be outspoken. I wanted to express how I felt about this past election, but I'm not very good at writing political blogs or particularly fond of debating. So I figured, how better to express my opinion than to write a song. ** To elaborate: This song is about how we've forgotten the importance of our leaders' character. The expression, "Obamanation", (a play on words, yes) is also meant to symbolize a reality where people vote for politicians based upon charisma, instead of the content of their character.
It's describing a situation where we are blinded by those whose main goal is to spend more of our tax money while ignoring our values.
It reminds us that the change THEY want may not be the change that YOU want. Let them know whose change matters. **
