The recent debates between U.S. President Barack Obama and the Republican Party’s nominee for President in the 2012 election, Mitt Romney, has been one of the main topics of discussion in the media.
And while Venrez’s song, “Sell the Lie,” was written prior to the debates, the group’s singer, Steven Berez, couldn’t help but realize the aforementioned song tied in with his feelings about what he witnessed on television.
As Berez explains, “When I began watching the current 2012 election debates, the art of selling lies became so crystal clear that I felt it was absolutely necessary to re-edit the video off our current album, which is also the title track, ‘Sell the Lie.'”
“Both candidates flipping back and forth on their positions, both accusing the other of not being the right man for the job. My view is that they are both right. Neither one deserves to be president. Our great country needs an honest leader who will always feel the needs of our people with their heart and soul, and love our country for all the right reasons. We don’t need lies, we need compassion and leadership.”
