Jon v. Obama

Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 3:00 AM

I'm going to preface this by saying, "If this isn't a stickied post on this forum, then it should be."

I have been a painfully loyal KoRn fan since Issues. I know that sounds like "wow, next thing you'll tell me you've been enjoying air since birth, right?" Sorry. I didn't know about the band at all until a friend invited me to a concert (at the ripe old age of 13). (Saw my first live breasts there. Sick and Twisted indeed, props, aw yeah, good job).

All that aside, I was hooked from that exposure. The music was amazing. The visuals were amazing. Afterward I listened to every song like it was being played at such a venue, every time. It's a powerful feeling for a young, naive teen.

For over a decade I've been able to enjoy Korn's music because it had branded me since youth. I didn't care. This shit was awesome.

Then I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS9eOaSQwuI

What the hell? Is Jonathan Davis a closet republican or a crackpot? The latter is much more acceptable, but I wish someone could tell him to take a step back and think.

Less than a year ago, I heard he was going to DJ a local gig and I nearly lost my shit. Now I think he's a robot with bad programming.

Any thoughts? Any justifications?

    I find it very telling that his solution to getting the elected official he wants is to stop people who disagree from voting. Here's a tip for you, kid. You live in a country with democratic elections. Young people have every business voting because it is a right by definition of a democracy.

    Cant tell if troll or just moron.

    The turth is that I am much smarter than you people. Every single one of you Democrats say the same things. its because your brain washed by the media. FoX news is the only legit station that reports real news. Its fair and balanced, they actually have dems and repubs on the air. All of the other stations only carry dems on air. As it goes for young people voting, I just believe there should be a ttest on basic U.S history and Law before you can be allowed to vote. I also believe people who dont pay taxes shouldnt be allowed to vote. Thomas Jefferson said the country would be ruined when people can vote for free money. We have people on Government assitance voting democrat because they know they will get Obama bucks. Its not right. Screw you crazy democrats, You are insane and eventually you will all realize that you were brainwashed by the government. Republican = Americans. Democrats = scumbag confederate socialist Commies.

    One last thing. Obama and the Dems doubled unemployment in 4 years, they tripled the US debt. They increased people on government assitance by 70% in 4 years. These are not the statistics we need to be seeing. I should be president compared to Obama. I believe in jobs and making money, If the US was a business Obama would have been fired 2 years ago. I will see KoRn play in Indianapolis, IN next week. I am hoping for the song Illumanti haha. Actually id like to see Faget played live of course. I seen Korn in Detroit in FEB and I am upset to see they havnt changed their setlist since then. Whats the deal? O yea and all of the worst US cities and states are run by Democrats (California, Michigan). Absolute facts. The best places in the country are run by Republicans (Texas Indiana). Thats a fact.

    Great comeback. I bring the facts with me. I am not a troll. This is called Jon vs. Obama and it really means America vs. Obama.

    I think you need to pick up a dictionary and look up the definition of a fact, because you've brought nothing but bias and misrepresentation. You think Obama is a socialist. I bet you can't even define socialism as a socio-economic philosophy without looking on Google or Wikipedia.

    Cue a lie in 3...2...1...

    Guess I was right, but then I knew that already. Though for someone so intelligent you do make a quite a lot of spelling and grammatical mistakes.

    All you democrats are good at is spinning the subject away from the ISSUES. You guys FOLLOW THE LEADER and are brainwashed. You act like your UNTOUCHABLES but every one sees through you. TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR you idiot.

    I C WAT U DID THAR!

    Your assertion is redundant no matter how many Korn album titles you use to make it. Also, not sure if you paid attention or if you're just an idiot (I lie, I'm 100% sure you're an idiot) but as I stated previously; I'm not American. I'm not a Democrat. Your "arguments" have been viewed, judged and found to be lacking. Thus, they've been dismissed as horse piss.

    Please try to pay attention next time.

    I think this is the smartest thing I've ever heard and ya know what I think the intro to his live set is absolutely HILARIOUS, he can express his own views though some of us might not agree with it, he's an artist, and personally i feel like politics and religion don't have any place in the music world thats just me.
