Song: Freedom – Election 2016

This was inspired by Dr. Marc Feldman’s rap at this year’s LP Convention and the Gary Johnson/William Weld nomination. I hope it is an encouraging hip-hop anthem for all libertarians during this year’s election season. If you like it, please consider making a donation to Gary Johnson’s campaign at or to We Are Libertarians at via Patreon. Or, you could donate to both! For Liberty – Joe Ruiz


Verse One

Look at this place we’re in. We could set the pace, Set our fates to win. Nobody demonstrates how they hate the kids like the status quo, debates, and the states that’s been. Thin – They say our chances are. We battling a beast that is so bizarre. We finally got a reach and the dance is ours. Now it’s time to unleash with our hands to stars. For this race is so staged whether red or blue. You can’t even believe what’s been fed to you. Are Republicans and Democrats dead to you? Because this year they’re dead to me too. I opt for freedom. I want to vote for me. We need to stand up for our rights to be. We need to stand up for some liberty. If we do, man, what a sight to see. I just need some (freedom).

Verse Two

Got our sights set on it. We finally got a moment now we can’t jet from it. We finally gotta own it. Be the champs – gotta want it. Put a stamp on the map. Show the people that they fronted when they told’em – only 2 choices in the U.S. We’ve been the voice, media just kept’em clue-less. Be for the truth, otherwise we keep it truthless. We the most authentic. I don’t know, that’s just my two cents. They called us wasted votes, but looking at it we’re the only sane ones to note. I say it’s time that everybody jumped on the boat. Are the other guys gonna get it done? Nope. They’ve just had too many chances – know the problems, not the answers. They the problem. That’s the stance if we really want to advance us. Let’s vote different cuz’ the same is outlandish. The way to be – for Liberty. Now everybody put your hands up.


It’s a new day y’all. Either we choosin’ to change, or we choosin’ to fall. Either we choose to engage or we’ve rejected the call. Either we rippin’ down the system, or we buildin’ a wall. Either we askin’ for permission or we takin’ it all. Either we acceptin’ the mission or we droppin’ the ball. Either become an activist or be a fly on the wall but I just think that we should be involved.

This is for everybody this year that wants to be exceptional.
For everybody that’s brave enough to say “No More.”
For everybody that’s done with war, corruption, debt, and most importantly, for everybody that’s ready for some (freedom).
