Band Photo: Motorhead (?)

Motorhead mainman Lemmy Kilmister recently spoke with Greece’s TV WAR (www.tvwar.gr) program and stated, “We don't care about politics, they are all the same anyway. All politicians are bastards anyway. Every one of them, doesn't matter who you vote for you'll always have a shitty government. All they are after is themselves and their pockets. They are all lying cheating bastards.”

Watch the rest of the interview on Wednesday, November 3rd on Iad TV. TV War is broadcast every Monday and Wednesday at 11 PM (CET) and you can watch it through the Greek Nova package on Hotbird 3 satellite.

who needs shoes anyway!

lemmy has a point. even if you support a party, they aren't going to do
anything for you, your the guy who gets screwed because you're not
rich, or a socialite. you are just a vote in that politicians popularity contest.

one day, in an election, no one is going to like the major candidates
and somehow, nader will win. and that's why he's there. he keeps it
in check for the rest of us.

Lemmy is THE MAN for good reason.

I mean seriously, how many of you can say that a politician has ever represented any interests other than their own? It's like the police force. Some people go in all idealistic wanting to do a positive thing - 'change the world', but then soon find out that with the way things are (ie, corrupt beyond belief) it's impossible, and it's just easier to toe the official line rather than actually do anything positive.

Did you know that if people weren't willing to be hired goons, we could actually be free of all of this bullsh**? But no, all you wankers keep voting for your two safe major parties and maintain this long, slow descent into hell. f*** I hate mankind.

People won't vote for Nader (or any other third party) because they're too gutless and stupid - end of story.

FYI - when I say hired goons I mean anything from a simple thug to police to the army. I know this will DEFINITELY offend some, but this is how I see things. Without these people to maintain the status quo, those old men in the capitol have no power. Think about it.
