Todays Political State of being

My songs are a direct reflection of the state of America's socio-political position at any given time. Songs such as "Fuel" were written 30 years ago about the Iran Contra connection but it still is just as pertinate today. "Go-P" reflects my disgust with the constant manipilation of the truth by a political party gone crazy. "Soft and Slow" is an attempt to bring me back to earth with a Torch Song, in essence I believe Love is a constant that can drive away the negative if practiced. "Obama Got Osama" tells it like it is, give the man credit for his decisive action against terror.......Ben
