Election Day Music Monday

I can't speak for anyone else, but I am extremely glad the election is tomorrow. I'm tired of the mud-slinging political ads and the seemingly unending talk about Obama and Romney. The worst part of it, in my opinion, is people on each side trying to make us believe that the world will basically come to an end if their guy doesn't win. I know that is untrue, because I know who ultimately controls that, and I'm thankful He is not Obama nor Romney.

For the last few days, I've been trying to come up with the perfect song for today's Music Monday, and I think I've found it. It's a song and video from a singer / songwriter that has been making music for many years. The song and video I've picked speaks about society's various ills, including drug abuse, homelessness, pollution, and other things. However, the message is basically that despite everything that may be wrong or could go wrong, we'll just keep "Rockin' in the Free World." Neil Young recorded today's song on his 1989 album titled Freedom.

So, as the election rolls around tomorrow, and the results begin to trickle in, please remember that whether your candidate wins or loses, it's not the end of the world. Whether the country's voters choose to continue the march towards socialism or choose to say "no mas" and begin the process of restoration, we'll "Keep Rockin' in the Free World."
