Dropped my album on April 3rd. Figured I’d give y’all some appetizers before the next dish off the main course.

The campaign for #RiseoftheEasternSon is very much alive. I have the first visuals coming in the next few weeks for you all. This beat is just a little something I cooked up for my fellow rappers looking for unique, quality production.

2016: Clinton, Bush & Paul


  

Republicans will do whatever they can to prevent Hillarys election. 

I believe it is inevitable. The same sentiment I carried during my support for Obama in 2008 and 2012.

God willing it will be a landslide victory and yet another milestone in our march towards progressive politics.

Jeb Bush is probably the only serious contender the GOP has to offer and it isn’t because his credentials but rather by the very nature of the Repuvlican-Conservative tradition of dynastic inheritances as well as the demand for a white Protestant male prototype.

Obama shattered that. What came with it is a burgeoning reality; racism, classicism and patriarchism are alive and well.

My only discord with Clinton is her lapdog mentality for Israel but like Obama’s strategy of short term appeasement, I believe the principles of the Democratic Party and democracy altogether will outweigh the importance of a continued alliance with apartheid state, Israel.

If any entity is going to deliver the U.S. from being held hostage to foreign special interest groups like AIPAC and the Arab-Gulf Lobby, it is not the Republican Party. The GOP is bought. It is essentially an interest group surviving off ideological propaganda and oligarchy.

Rand Paul, a favorite amongst youth and individual rights advocates falls into the same bracket as any republican to me. Having the balls to say outrageous statements about education and privatization in the U.S. is, contrary to libertarian sensationalist and sympathizes, not courageous. What would be courageous wild be for the likes of Rand Paul, the supposed philosophical genius of individual rights, to champion the right of Palestinian self-determination instead of lauding Netanyahu’s approach as his own.

Let’s see what type of America 2016 will usher in.

At this point, I would personally and ideally vote for a true democrat. Joe Biden and Hillary are much the same. They are centrists, echoing the sentiments of blue-dog democrats.

We need a robust, ethnically diverse, immigrant-background, progressive democratic candidate unafraid of challenging the foundations American society which have perpetuated inequality long enough.

Is democracy meant to perpetuate capitalism?

Because the majority system mixed with the electoral system guarantee that a secure, familiar ideology will administer America.

Two ideologies can be diametrically opposed – and both can still be equally wrong: Nazism, Zionism, Communism, Capitalism.

I pray that democracy and mixed economics triumph over the dogma of oligarchic exclusivity and ideological superiority, but often times it seems democracy works against the wishes of justice. The collective and individualistic dogmas have been institutionalized. 

Capitalism and communism must be undermined. 

My philosophy is socialist-libertarianism, essentially a blend of spirituality, collectivism and individualism, with proper balance and self-determination. Another simpler term is mixed economics.

I personally believe the democrats since clinton, especially during Obama’s presidency, and if Hillary gets elexted, we will witness a continuing subtle revolution within the American domestic and foreign political atmospheres.

Through reconciliation efforts abroad with left leaning nations that were traditionally scowered by the West, such as Cuba and Iran initiatives led by Obama, as well as changing rhetoric towards Israel, finally added with a demand for the recognition of minority disenfranchisement in the U.S., progress in the American society will be more possible.
