Music and "The Message"Submitted by Ozark Hillbilly on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 13:40
This is a post from 2009. I couldn't "bump" the original for some reason so I'm re-posting it now...
The people in the rEVOLution all like music, and we all like "The Message" of liberty right?
I don't like certain types of music, and neither do most people. But, because we all like to hear different genres, we can say we all like music.
I think the same thing is true with "The Message" that Ron Paul has repeatedly said to spread. But, like music there are different genres of how the message is "played."
I mean if you like country music and wanted to tell people about a new song, you wouldn't have a problem telling them to listen to it. But, if you don’t like country music, your probably not going to tell people to go out and listen to a new country song.
So, if your genre of the message is Ron Paul, tell people to listen to Ron Paul. If your genre is Jeff Rense, tell people to listen to Jeff Rense. If your genre is G. Edward Griffin, tell people to listen to G. Edward Griffin. If your genre is Alex Jones, tell people to listen to Alex Jones.
People like different genres of music. How am I to know for sure without a doubt which genre a person I've just met likes in music? How could I know which genre they would prefer of the message? I can't, so I tell people about the genre of the message that I like, sorta like music.
If all of us share our genre of the message to people, then eventually they will hear a genre that "they" like.
I DO NOT like this genre of music and probably never will:
This is just an example of MANY songs in MANY genres that are spreading the message. Who am I to say that because I don't like the way the message being "played" in this "genre" that I should tell everyone not to listen to it or not to tell their friends to listen to it.
I don’t like rap music so guess what... I don't listen to it or tell people to go out and listen to it. I do like rock music and guess what... I tell people to listen to new songs I've heard in that genre.
It's the same with message. If you don't like country music, keep your radio on 92.5 or whatever and listen to music that you do like.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this, folks, let's not get caught up in who likes which "Disc Jockey" the best. Let's get caught up in getting people to listen to any of the varied disc jockeys out there to choose from.
I look forward to the day when we can say there are as many people who like "The Message" as there are people who like music. Regardless of their genre.
