Clifford “Felonious Ax? Tasner: Voters are not becoming better informed and candidates get away with saying almost anything that pops into their heads. It was especially bad this year when Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan simply lied at every chance.
Composer/Lyricist Clifford J. Tasner has been committing his creative energies to social change since 1989, when he began organizing street theater performances for the Pro-Choice activists defending women’s clinics from blockades by Operation Rescue. He writes and produces the music for The Billionaires, a nationwide political satire, street theater group. You can hear a whole lot of Tasner’s songs and view some music videos at TheBillionaires.org. He works in the Film Industry, orchestrating big Hollywood movies and scoring smaller ones. He is also the Secretary and Chair of the Endorsement Committee of the Southern California Chapter of Americans for Democratic Action.
