With the surprising outcome of the 2016 election and the clear evidence of Russian influence in the outcome, I thought it was way past time for us to speak out, speak up, and take responsibility for our government and our country. These songs are a collection of songs that I have written over the years (plus one from my pal, Larry Good) that sadly still retain profound relevance. I hope that they will give you pause for thought, inspiration to take action and hope that that action will have a positive effect on our lives and our country. Rise up, my friends. Rise up or be plowed under.
