TRUTH TROUBADOUR BLOGSPOT Sept 27, 2012: “On Taking an Oath to Become a 2012 Electoral College Presidential Elector for Rocky Anderson: It’s Time to Vote for Justice!“ – “Berkeley Broadside Balladeer” Vic Sadot was sworn in as a Presidential Elector for Justice Party Presidential candidate Rocky Anderson on September 25, 2012. Questions the Clerk about the Meaning of the Oath to Defend the Constitution – Posts Song for Rocky as Free MP3 on Sound Cloud: IT’S TIME TO VOTE FOR JUSTICE!
Last summer songwriter Vic Sadot met Rocky Anderson, 2012 US Presidential candidate for the Justice Party USA, at a small dinner gathering at the home of Cynthia Papermaster of Code Pink Golden Gate Chapter in Berkeley, CA. Rocky is the former mayor of Salt Lake City with extensive management experience, a great record on human rights, and a reputation for getting people to work together. During a road trip to Santa Cruz, Vic wrote a song and sang the first version of it in Santa Cruz at a restaurant gathering for Rocky after he had spoken at Occupy Santa Cruz earlier in the day. The Truth Troubadour Blog is about the day that Vic Sadot was asked to be a Presidential Elector for Rocky Anderson and had to sign a document and make a solemn oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic”.
Vic made numerous revisions to the song and he recorded It’s Time to Vote for Justice in Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley. Then the song was posted as a Free MP3 at SoundCloud on 9-27-12 after Vic received this email from Rocky: “Great to hear from you, Vic! And thanks for the great song for our campaign. I so admire what you do — and why you do it! Keep up the great work!” Best, Rocky

Ride the Wind
Wish I could hop that old freight train and leave these blues behind
The ways to get away from here been weighin’ on my mind
I know no train can take me where I really want to go
But come the dawn I will be gone… I’ll ride the wind, you know…
I’ll just get up and go!
Ride the wind! Stand the storm! There ain’t no place to hide!
Ride the wind! Stand the storm! We cannot be denied!
Farewell, my friends, I’ll miss you all… I’ll miss you one and all
One of these years I shall return… most likely in the fall
So keep the faith that we have known in Love and Liberty
And when we once embrace again we shall be strong and free…
In Truth we shall be free!
Chorus Instrumental Chorus
Cold winds blow across the land… Dark clouds gather gloom
Children wake up crying… Parents rush into the room
It’s just another nightmare of impending days of doom
But we’re gonna tear “your terror” down and make the deserts bloom!
Yeah, that’s what we assume!
It’s just like us to rise again when we have sunk so low
Those who have no sense of shame will never learn to grow
We cannot live locked in the past… The winter can’t stop spring!
So let us join our hearts in hope… Let’s hear those voices ring!
Yeah, let’s hear those voices sing!
Chorus Instrumental Chorus

Simple Song of Freedom
Licensed for use by Vic Sadot on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” released on 9/11/11. This is a lyrical update Bobby Darin’s 1969 anthem to struggle!
Come and sing a simple song of Freedom!
Sing it like you’ve never sung before!
Let it fill the air! Tell the people everywhere!
We the People! We don’t want your war!
Hey there Mister Rich Man! Can you hear me?
I don’t want your mansion or your shame!
I just want to house and feed my family!
Don’t want your wars of terror in my name!
How many have you armed and enlisted?
We’ve seen the way you demonize with lies!
You’re the masters of the media we’ve resisted!
Full of lies to divide and destabilize!
Come on people! Don’t buy propaganda!
Don’t buy the corporate media’s dirty lies!
It’s a bloody game by those who have no shame!
To feed their greed and power, Freedom dies!
Only by making Justice can Peace be won!
And sharing all the “Commonwealth” is wise!
It’s everybody’s earth! And it’s everybody’s sun!
To wake to in the morning when we rise!
No doubt ruling class groups want war profits…
Like Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Kings…
And Corporate CEO’s want us to fight their foes…
While puppets on their strings do violent things!
(Last chorus #6: Do it slow with stops. And change to
“We the People! We won’t fight your wars!)
