Libertarian Hip Hop: Henry Havoc

on Sunday, Aug. 26th

Henry Havoc, a single parent from San Antonio, TX, is all about principles: “Sticking to a balanced budget, sticking to the truth, no unjust wars — that’s why I’m here.”

“Here,” is the Sun Dome at the University of South Florida in Tampa, waiting for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to arrive to speak at a rally days before the RNC.

Havoc carries around an American flag with words Sharpied on top of the stars and stripes that read:

“My country is sick, we need a doctor for a president”

They’re lyrics from his song “My Country Is Sic,” which Havoc dedicated to Ron Paul.

Havoc says even if Ron Paul isn’t destined for the candidacy, he still plans to “vote Ron Paul.

Both (Obama and Romney) are supported by Goldman Sachs,” Havoc said. “They both want more wars. That’s not cool, man.”

Henry Havoc’s song is pretty cool. It’s got a Southern hip hop bounce, and lyrics that make Ron Paul sound like one of the characters in The Expendables.
