There is grumpy, gray-haired, socialist in his 70s inspiring many of us to do things that are outside of our comfort zone. That is where life begins, as they say. We are meeting people we would have never met. We see each other as kindred spirits. People of a kind. No matter what race, creed, or color. We see an opportunity to right our national ship. A cleaner planet and a brighter future for our children. A chance to strike at the well-monied Neoliberal and Conservative forces that are destroying the very soul of this country. It matters.
My Progressive Army colleague and new friend, Michael Salamone, is a kindred spirit riding the Love Train. He is a writer, musician, and podcaster of note. He has collaborated with his friend Chad Lenig to create “SOLIDARITY”, Songs inspired by Bernie, 2016, Revolution and You. It is a 12-song album of original songs. It is great music! See for yourself.

Solidarity is a collection of 12 songs by Michael Salamone inspired by Bernie, 2016, the revolution and you. Written and recorded during the first half of the 2016 Presidential primaries, Solidarity features performances from Chad Lenig, the 3 Olive Orchestra, Stephanie Rogers and more.
All proceeds from Solidarity will be donated to Bernie Sanders for President. If at any point Bernie Sanders is no longer running for President (like in the year 2020 after being elected to his second term) all proceeds will be donated to like-minded candidates seeking Federal office. (Senate or Congress or President) Michael Salamone reserves the right to decide what Progressive values “like-minded” constitutes as, what candidates receive the funding and how funds are distributed for either the lifetime of this album or the lifetime of Michael Salamone, whichever expires first.
Solidarity will be available everywhere digital music is sold or streamed such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon mp3, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Beats, YouTube Music, etc.
Please take the time to listen, donate, volunteer and enjoy. This Revolution is real, and Bernie needs our help. He’s been at this for decades. It’s time for us to kick in.
