Why is it important to vote?
You need to vote because we all have to let our voices be heard in order to attempt to have a better future for everyone, including our selves.
Is this election any different than elections past?
Yes it is. As we can all see, this country is going through a period of time where everything around us, from the economy to war to how we are viewed by the rest of the world... just our general way of being... is less than ideal. There is a tremendous amount at stake in this Presidential election: We are picking the direction this country is headed.
Do politics have a place in music?
Why or why not?
Yes. This is our communication outlet to get our point across. Musicians are role models and people look to us for our perspective on things. As artists, we approach things differently. I think we should put musicians in positions of power. Dave Matthews, Michael Franti, Vernon Reid and Bono should be running things in Washington.

Editor's note: While we did not set out with a particular political agenda we do realize that these responses have all been leaning Democratic, if there are any artists who can represent a Republican point of view we would love to hear from you.
