so is a dick pick going to lead to a Trump presidency?  Things are certainly trending in that direction.

Most difficult decision Ive made in a long time.

I believe after today is when the real work begins, regardless of who is elected.

"To bring it back to Donald Drumpf, itís like, sure you can lie your way into the White House. You can lie your way through all this stuff. But sooner or later itís going to bite you in the ass. Or itís gonna bite us all in the ass.

This song is definitely both anti-Drumpf and anti-politics, but I donít like to speak in specific terms because I hope that my music could be just as appropriate 20 years from now. But you look at Donald Drumpf, and itís like how could any self-respecting person get behind this person? And itís just insane. I feel like Michelle Obama summed it up so beautifully when she said itís not politics anymore. Itís about love. Itís about how do we make sure this crazy guy is not president? Hillary Clinton is not perfect, but of course, I want her to win because I want the earth to survive and I want us to all be here."

I wanna say "this too shall pass", but I'm terrified of the damage that could ensue in the interim.

Jim's new album is really helping me cope with this election. I've been pretty distraught and feel like an outsider in my own country. My only solace comes from knowing that a majority of people in this country agree with me. We all know the rules, so the electoral college ultimately wins out, but at least more people in this country are on the right side of history. That alone will save us from the worst case scenarios that keep me up at night.

This album really speaks to me. I also think the outcome of the election brings an even greater urgency to Jim's message and I am really curious to see how this translates in his upcoming tour. I really need some of Jim's healing powers right now... can't wait for the Atlanta show.
