"Good People Vote, Then Drink Good Beer" in DC and Beyond

Rock the Vote logo Good People Vote, Then Drink Good Beer - the movement is in full swing. After the Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert-led Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive in DC this Saturday, we're partnering with Rock the Vote and Campus Progress for the "Party Fearlessly, Vote Fearlessly" after party. From 3 to 7 pm, the sane and fearless will unite at Rocket Bar DC (714 7th St., NW). You must RSVP through the Campus Progress website to save your spot. The inspiration for our Good People Vote, Then Drink Good Beer campaign came directly from Hunter S. Thompson (Gonzo journalist, political junky, and close friend of Flying Dog founder George Stranahan) who once said: “Politics is the art of controlling your environment. This is one of the key things I learned in these years, and I learned it the hard way. Anybody who thinks that ‘it doesn’t matter who’s President’ has never been Drafted and sent off to fight and die in a vicious, stupid War on the other side of the World – or been beaten and gassed by Police for trespassing on public property – or been hounded by the IRS for purely political reasons – or locked up in the Cook County Jail with a broken nose and twelve perverts wanting to stomp your ass in the shower. That is when it matters who is President or Governor or Police Chief. That is when you wish you had voted.”
