If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might've guessed by now that when I am passionate a particular topic, I am hard pressed to keep it out of my blog. What can I say, I'm Greek... It's in my genes. We invented Politics, The Olympics, Drama (Acting, seriously we did - look it up on google), Windex and a whole bunch of other things, so it's to be expected. There are lots of things I'm passionate about like coffee, working out, dogs/animals and of course my music, and politics. Shocking, I know you would have never guessed that one would ya? ;)
You see my filter broke off a few weeks ago, due to the fact that my noggin has at times has about spun off seeing the goings on in the world lately... and I can't seem to keep my big fat greek yap-trap shut. So I decided to start speaking out about what I see going on. Many of you may know this already about me, especially with my song, "We The People" that was written about getting back to our founding principals. It was written because I can't stand to see my country losing it's identity. The very same country my dad came to with only $20 in his pocket to chase the American Dream. So I started my MissionWeThePeople.com website to help get the message of the song out to the masses before this the most important election of our lifetime.
A few months ago a good friend of mine asked me to be an honorary Politichick and take part in trying to make a difference. What's Politichick's you might be thinking? Well it's a group of women all across America coming together to help shed light on local, regional and even national and sometimes international news. It's kind of like a conservative version of TMZ but with all smart women. ;)
My role as a Politichick will take a different approach. Because I am a Greek and I love to laugh, and entertaining people; I will be creating political rants in the form of adding a sarcastic and funny spin on what is going on in the Main Stream Media.
As an artist, I love and value the freedom of speech which allows me the right to express myself however I feel it necessary. For me it is crucial that I take part in what is going on. Too often I turn on the TV or walk in the mall and see the impact our pop-culture is having on our society. Not just on the youth, on everyone. What most people don't realize is that with most of Hollywood being so liberal in their ideology they are literally stripping the morality away from our country. In so doing they are allowing our very freedoms to be attacked and stripped away from us. Including our freedom of speech as seen with the recent Innocence of Muslim's video on YouTube. What's worse is that most people are becoming more and more desensitized by the people they idolize and don't realize their values are shallow and go against everything this country was founded upon.
So to get a taste of what to expect, feel free to watch any of my "Greek Girl Rants" on Politichicks or subscribe to my own YouTube channel and get them as they are posted. Here are the first 3 with more to come:
Hope they bring you a great big smile!
Blessings, Love & Music~
