    Tom Morello: 'Paul Ryan Is the Embodiment of the Machine Our Music Rages Against'
    Rage Against the Machine's guitarist blasts Romney's VP pick and unlikely Rage fan

    Last week, Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan, the Republican architect of Congress's radical right-wing budget plan, as his running mate. Ryan has previously cited Rage Against the Machine as one of his favorite bands. Rage guitarist Tom Morello responds in this exclusive op-ed.

    Don't mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta "rage" in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he's not raging against is the privileged elite he's groveling in front of for campaign contributions.

    Good to read of people of prominence speaking out, It seems to me that there is a continuous stream of them now and I hope the trend expands as we get closer to election day.

    I find it baffling that lots of conservatives love ultra-liberal bands for some reason.
    Maybe because they've never listened to the words of even one of their songs, and have never read anything about their beliefs?
