Yes, your eyes and ears aren’t deceiving you. I’m rhyming. Yes. Rhyming. Sort of rapping. Doing spoken-word poetry, a cappella style.
Call it what you want, but here’s a video about politics, and you guessed it — Dr. Ron Paul. Believe me, rhyming, and rhyming about politics is not something that I ever expected to be doing, let alone sharing with the world.
As far as rhyming goes, I actually did go through a brief phase of my life back around 2004, when I was writing some spoken-word stuff. So technically, I do have some (limited) experience with spoken-word rhyming. In fact, years ago I actually performed twice at “Da Poetry Lounge“ Tuesday nights at the Greenway Court Theater, over on Fairfax here in Los Angeles. I just remember being insanely nervous, and reciting my words a mile-a-minute.
In terms of politics, I’ve always had some interest in that — but was never actively involved or even very passionate. If the subject came up, I’d have go-to phrases like “I’m not active, but I try to be aware of what’s going on.”
But somehow someway within the last year, the more and more I watched and listened to Dr. Paul, I realized that he makes a lot of sense. I may not agree with all of his views (no one agrees with any candidate 100%) — but in my opinion, what separates Dr. Paul from the others, is that he’s really the only one going after our flawed system, which has gotten away from any semblance of a sane Constitutional government.
Believe me, I’m no expert on politics or the economy, but still feel I have something important to share with everyone that can have a positive impact.
Originally I thought I’d eventually just shoot some video blogs of me talking about political issues, but instead came up with the idea to do some rhyming — just thought it’d be a much more interesting and perhaps entertaining way to share information with the world. And what better for my first rhyme than something about one of Dr. Paul’s core issues as a politician –The Federal Reserve system.
*Note – If you’re wondering why I titled my video “Jewish American Guy…” It’s because given how too often the mainstream media would like us to believe that Dr. Paul is anti-semitic, and that he doesn’t have very many Jewish supporters, I think it’s important that people know Dr. Paul has lots of Jewish support.
