We have just the thing for the final weeks of the US Presidential election spectacle: a new video from our comrades Test Their Logik, “Democracy’s Bankrupt.” This anthem eloquently expresses the disillusionment with electoral democracy that is spreading around North America today. Recommended for use alongside our “Vote Here” stickers and our poster series, “What Does Democracy Mean?”

Following their debut album, “A,” Test Their Logik’s “Democracy’s Bankrupt” is the first single off their upcoming album “Be,” due to drop on December 21.

every politician’s already been bought. capital rules this ballot box.

this pyramid scheme is about to collapse runnin outta credit outta steam outta gas healthcare welfare everything is getting slashed more cops more jails bailouts for the banks rolling out the tanks to occupy the planet we occupy a plaza they wanna oscar grant us murderers working for the people on our ballots who serve the corporations and the rich and the bankers all about traffic keep products flowing profits soaring our wages stay frozen they shipped every job they could across the ocean built borders for the people but kept markets open we waited for change. ain’t no use in hoping the system needs war and slaves to keep floating so sinking this ship is the path we’ve chosen democracy’s bankrupt we ain’t voting

X2 All power to the people. If voting changed anything it would be illegal those in power have always been deceitful we’re done with voting for a lessor evil democracy means war, surveillance, prisons, police, borders, capitalism. every vote is a vote for the system act directly make your own decisions

If voting could change anything it’d be illegal the whole tree is evil chop it from the root power to the people.

X2 All power to the people. If voting changed anything it would be illegal those in power have always been deceitful we’re done with voting for a lessor evil democracy means war, surveillance, prisons, police, borders, capitalism. every vote is a vote for the system act directly make your own decisions

X2 All power to the people. If voting changed anything it would be illegal those in power have always been deceitful we’re done with voting for a lessor evil democracy means war, surveillance, prisons, police, borders, capitalism. every vote is a vote for the system act directly make your own decisions
