Why is it important to vote?


By Jo-Ey Tang
Voting is the first step in taking part in the political process. We get out of the system what we put into it, and voting is the first step in getting involved in our destinies. It is not, however the end. We need to keep pushing forward regardless of who gets elected.

Is this election any different than elections past?

It may seem like a charade, but it's the most important charade of our lifetimes.

Do politics have a place in music?
Why or why not?

Music serves to uplift the human spirit. In these times, when our future is at the risk of plunging into fascism, music needs to uplift the spirit by engaging people in a political manner.
