Barry Manilow: I agree with “just about everything” Ron Paul says. Barry was a maxed-out donor to Ron's last presidential campaign. I wonder if he'd do a benefit this time? He could sing some of these.
UPDATE from Telma Reed:
"I remember how all the Barry Manilow fans, mostly female, were put down by their male counterparts in the seventies because they liked his songs. Barry wasn't cool. Barry didn't protest the war, etc. Barry didn't understand the ills gripping the nation. Barry wasn't Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Who, Led Zepplin, Tom Petty, Joan Baez. I could continue. But where are all those stud rock dudes now? Still fawning over the democratic party? Ron Paul is standing right before their eyes in all his glory and they choose to ignore him? Why are record sales down? Maybe because today's lyrics lack truth? I hope one of your wonderful essay writers take up the cause and explores why the freedom song writers of the past quit writing about freedom. Thanks for your great website."
