Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 28, 2004
During a recent segment on the OÂReilly factor a prominent Christian leader from Kansas spoke out against the deplorable voting record of Christians in that state. He said 3 out of 4 fundamentalist Christians donÂt make it to the polls. Nashville singer/songwriter, Michael Fischer, was outraged, and within the space of ten minutes the song ÂGet Out and VoteÂ was born. In a recent interview Fischer explained, ÂThe song is really no credit to me, I was just there to catch it.Â Fischer, 57 years old, who has spent 33 years of his life doing mission work, 24 of those overseas in Australia, India, Japan and Russia, went on to say, ÂChristians need to wake up to the moral and spiritual decay that is sweeping the nation due to the apathy and lack of concern and conviction amongst some in the Christian community who fail to stand up and be counted."
Controversy has been sparked over the radical lyrics that touch on abortion and gay marriage. One man, in utter disgust said, ÂitÂs nothing more than right wing Republican crap aimed at dividing the country,Â However Fischer stated, ÂI am neither a Republican nor a Democrat. I am a liberated Christian with conservative values based on the Word of God and those values never change because God doesnÂt change.Â The chorus of the song drives home, ÂGet out and vote, stand up and be counted, Get out and vote, and get what you wanted, Get out and vote, letÂs find the peopleÂs will, If you donÂt get out and vote you know the Devil will.Â
Due to the shortness of time before the election 2,200 e-mails were sent out to Christian radio and television stations nation wide making the song available to them for downloading. The song is now seeing substantial airplay from many stations across the country.
ÂGET OUT AND VOTEÂ is a free download and can be passed on to others but it cannot be sold. The website for the download is: http://www.voteyourvalues.org
