5 Selfish Reasons Every Musician Should Vote For Barack Obama

Rock_the_vote READ A POST VICTORY UPDATE HERE.

  1. HE'S MORE LIKELY TO BUY YOUR CD -   Barack Obama has eclectic musical tastes. He already has “everything from Howlin’ Wolf to Yo-Yo Ma to Sheryl Crow... (and) probably 30 Dylan songs" on his iPod. Why not you?
  2. AMERICA WILL BE COOL AGAIN - Admit it. You've got worldwide ambitions and it hasn't helped that being American has become about as hip as being Donnie & Marie. Obama's already drawn a crowd in Germany bigger than Coachella and Bonnaroo combined.
  3. TAXES - This is Music 2.0 and you are going to make a lot less than $250K a year. You'll pay less taxes under Obama.
  4. HEALTH CARE -  You can't stay on your parent's health care plan forever. You're self-employed now and there's a lot better chance that Obama's going to help you get coverage than McCain.
  5. HE CAN DANCE -
