When exchanging email with my sister in New Jersey, she reminded me of the wonderful tradition here in Delaware. After you sign in to the polling place, you stand in line for an open voting booth. As you get ready to go in, you are announced. 'Howard Stump is ready to vote.' Makes the vote feel very special. The picture above is Vice President Joseph Biden placing his vote this morning. Folk Music has long had a history of making political and social statements, standing up for what is the best in the world. On the evening of the election, I thought Peter, Paul & Mary, The Weavers and Billy Bragg would be a great way to celebrate another election. Enjoy.
Peter, Paul & Mary If I Had a Hammer
The Weavers - When The Saints Go Marchin' In
Peter, Paul & Mary The Times They Are A-Changing
Billy Bragg - All You Fascists Are Bound To Lose
Peter, Paul & Mary - 500 Miles
