Bruce Springsteen: Vote them out!

Today, Tuesday the 3rd of November millions of our American sisters and brothers are queuing up to cast their ballots for President, to claim back their country and the values close to their hearts.

More than 98 million ballots were cast before Election Day – now, the American People demands change, decency and truthfulness from the man behind the Resolute Desk!

Springsteen condemns Trump administration

During these four horrifying years, Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen (who eleven days ago released his critically acclaimed 20th studio album, “Letter to You”) has been an ardent critic of the sitting President.

Five days ago the rock legend reached out to his followers on Twitter, to share a poem by Elayne Griffin Baker, addressing the current “State of the Union” with the narcissist, lying, misogynist present occupying The White House.

“Where’d the country go?” asks Springsteen as he reads the verse:


There’s no art in this White House.

There’s no literature, no poetry, no music.

There are no pets in this White House, no loyal man’s best friend, no Socks the family cat, no kids’ science fairs.

No time when the president takes off his blue suit red tie uniform and becomes human, except when he puts on his white shirt and khaki pants uniform and hides from the American people to play golf.

There are no images of the First Family enjoying themselves together in a moment of relaxation.

No Obamas on the beach in Hawaii moments, or Bushes fishing in Kennebunkport.

No Reagans on horseback, no Kennedys playing touch football on the Cape.

Where’d that country go?

Where did all the fun, the joy and the expression of love and happiness go?

We used to be the country that did the Ice Bucket Challenge and raised millions for charity.

We used to have a President that calmed and soothed the nation instead dividing it, and a First Lady who planted a garden instead of ripping one out.

We are rudderless and joyless.

We have lost the cultural aspects of society that make America great.

We have lost our mojo, our fun, our happiness, our cheering on of others.

The shared experience of humanity that makes it all worth it.

The challenges and the triumphs that we shared and celebrated.

The unique can-do spirit that America has always been known for.

We are lost.

We have lost so much in so short a time.

-Elayne Griffin Baker

On November 3rd, vote them out.

Today’s the day that the United States made a decision not to submit to demagoguery and to division, not to continue stepping on the weak and whole heartedly turn its back on its ideals. Today is the day the American People turned it around.
