AXL ROSE Urges His Followers To Vote For 'Democracy' And 'Future Of Our Country'

November 3, 2020

Axl Rose has urged his social media followers to go out and vote in today's U.S. presidential election, saying that they should "make a stand" for "democracy" and "the future of our country."

The GUNS N' ROSES frontman took to his Twitter late Monday (November 2) to write:

Whatever It Takes
Take A Side
Make A Stand
With Courage
In The Face Of Fear
And Intimidation
Through All The Noise
And Distractions
For The Country
For A Better World

For The Future
Of Our Country
Our Planet
Your Planet
This Planet
The Only Planet We Have
For Those Who Fought,
Suffered And Died
To Create And Protect
Your Right To Vote

For Loved Ones
For You
And For US
Together As One
And If It Helps...
Vote Knowing There Are Those
Hoping, Praying N' Counting On
You Won't
And Would Do Virtually ANYTHING
They Thought They Could Get Away With
To Stop You

Rose has frequently spoken out against the Trump administration, including in July, when he defended his right to voice his political opinions, saying that he feels an "obligation to say something" about the "irresponsibility of this administration."

In late 2018, when Trump neglected climate change and accused poor forest management as the cause of the California wildfires while threatening to cut federal financial relief, Rose pointed fingers at Trump as the "root" of the problem and said that "only a demented n' truly pathetic individual would twist that around n' use a tragedy to once again misrepresent facts for attempted public/political gain at other's expense."

Back in November 2016, Rose took to Twitter to condemn then-President-elect Donald Trump's choice for U.S. attorney general, and to berate Trump for demanding an apology from the cast of the Broadway show "Hamilton" after then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed when he attended the musical. One month later, Rose invited fans at a GUNS N' ROSES concert in Mexico City to beat the crap out of a large piñata designed to look like Trump.

In January 2018, Axl blasted the Trump administration as the "gold standard of what can be considered disgraceful."
