Robby's Words on Michael Moore & the Elections

Excerpt from | By Thomas S. Orwat, Jr. | Nov 9, 2004

You were recently campaigning for John Kerry. What was that experience like?

Yeah, we were out with the film maker Michael Moore. It was really cool, he’s a great guy. He’s an incredibly heart felt, socially motivated human being. I think he should get some sort of recognition for his revealing of this whole situation. I love him and would completely defend him. It was great to just sit down with him and talk about his family as opposed to the Bush conspiracy dude which everyone knows him as. But I think Fahrenheit 911 was really eye opening for me. It’s going to help get me through the next four years because I know there are people out there that think like me. Dude, everyday for a week I was in a room with anywhere from 5000 - 15,000 people of all ages screaming and hugging because they were so happy that we might defeat this horribleness. After the election was lost, I was thinking, hey, all those people are still out there. These are people who love this country with all of their heart and want to see change. Some may view these people who take a stance with people like Michael Moore as being unpatriotic sometimes. You know me, we’ve talked enough times where you know that I’m not unpatriotic. I just hate to watch our country sail down the river or sail up the river, or which ever way you don’t want to go on the river. (laughs)

A lot of people are with you. This was a real close race. Bush certainly won’t go down in history as the President that always won by a landslide.

Yeah, when I hear him talk about the will of the people I just want to say “Dude, shut up. You won by a point.” It’s not the will of the people, it’s more like the will of you to scare the vote out. And now his administration is quitting on him. Ashcroft and Evans both already quit. It’s weird how the middle of the country votes for Bush and the states that make all the money voted for Kerry. But we could go on and on about this.

You guys have played Military bases before, would you consider playing in Iraq or do you think it’s too dangerous at this point?

Of course I would go. Matter of fact, the band Klear from my record label is going to be playing military bases in Alaska and they may go overseas and play some shows there. You know it just freaks me out what’s going on over there, it really does. It seems so false.
