Give Me My Sex, Drugs, and RocknRoll....As Nasty as I Wanna Be!

[News reporter]:
Earlier today in Broward County,
appalling courtjudges upheld the previousruling
to ban the sale of Miami rap group the 2 Live Crew's
double-platinum album,
"Nasty As They Wanna Be," in Broward County.

[Someone else commenting]
"We think it's the banning of free speech.
First Amendment protects material, resultably."

Luke (being interviewed):
"We don't talk about, uh, harrassing and sexually
brutalizing women in my music, man!"
"We don't do that in my music, man! I'm tired of you
saying that!"

Verse 1: [Fresh Kid Ice]
We've got white-collar people trying to grab our style
Saying we're too nasty and we're 2 Live
Corrupted politicians playing games
Bringing us down to boost their fame
They must be joking thinking we will fall
But they're like flies movin' the wall
We stand tall from beginning to end
With the help from fans and all our friends
Freedom of speech will never die
For us to help, our ancestors died
Don't keep thinking that we will quit
We'll always stand and never sit
We're 2 live, 2 black, 2 strong
Doing the right thing, and not the wrong
So listen up, y'all, to what we say
We won't be banned in the U.S.A.!

Chorus: (3x)
Banned in the USA, I was

"Luke's concerts are for adults"

[Luke] (being interviewed):
"If it's an adult show you have to be 18"
"Our record is a year old, but with all the publicity,
there's a lot of people ... curiosity is around!"
"We're selling records to a totally different
"I take a precaution that nobody else has not stickered my
album, I made
TWO versions, two versions two versions.."

Verse 2: [Brother Marquis]
The First Amendment gave us freedom of speech
So what you sayin'? It didn't include me?
I like to party and have a good time
There's nothin' but pleasure written in our rhyme
I know you don't think we'll ever quit
We've got some people on our side who won't take your lip
We're gonna do all the things we wanna do
You can't stand to see a brother get as rich as you
This is the 90s and we're conin' on strong
Sayin' things and doin' things that you're sayin's wrong
Wisen up, 'cause on Election Day,
We'll see who's banned in the U.S.A.!

[Luke] (being interviewed):
"The show in Hollywood, that was for 21-and-over people,
they had police out there, cars of the people coming in the
and they still arrested us for performing in front of

[Luke] speech:
What is this??
Is this not America?
This is not China!
This is not Russia!
This is not the place where they brought down the wall, this is
We have the right to say what we want to say,
we have the right to do what we want to do,
and what I do in my house, you might not do in your house!
So what I do in my house is my business!
And the simple fact of it all is that we are BONDED by the First
We have the freedom of EXPRESSION!
We have the freedom of CHOICE!
And you, Chinese, black, green, purple, Jew,
YOU have the right to listen to whoever you want to, and even
the 2 Live Crew!
So all you right-wingers, left-wingers, bigots, Communists,
there IS a place for you in this world!
Because this is the land of the FREE, the home of the BRAVE!
And 2 Live is what we are

Vader believes in personal liberty. Personal religious beliefs should NEVER be mixed in government. What I do to my body is my business.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the freedom of press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (Amendment 1,The Constitution of the United States.)

I believe in my rights guaranteed under the first amendment. To me, this is the freedom for lots of sex, drugs, and rocknroll.

If I want to have anal sex, that is my business. If I want to masturbate with dildos and vibrating pearl rabbits, that too is my business. If I want to have a hot, wicked lesbian threesome…that’s my choice, and my right. I should have full access to porn, if Im purchasing it from an adult establishment as an adult. Shit, if I covet and fuck my neighbors wife, that is still my choice, just because its morally wrong, it should not make it illegal. I have control of my body. If I chose to get pregnant as a teenager, and keep my child, that is my choice. If I get raped, and chose to have an abortion, its my right to have safe access. My body, my choice.

If I want to smoke pot, and use it as medicine for migraine or menstrual cramps that should be my right. Hell, I should be able to GROW my own plants for personal use. That is my right. I should be able to chose what I want to put into my body for medicinal value. Hell, if I want to smoke a cigarette or drink a beer after work, that is my right too. If I want to shoot myself up with heroine, let me do it. What good does the drug war serve other than to reinforce the power of the gangs and underworld?

I believe in artistic freedom, and freedom of expression. Musicians should not be banned, no matter how offensive they may be. Even the Klu Klux Klan has a right to protest and gather, as much as I hate those fockers. I consider the work of Robert Mapplethorpe fine art. We should all have access to public library books without censorhip. Pee-Wee Herman should not be harassed for his taste in art. I stand behind the words of 2 Live Crew.

Fuck this hypersensitive, over-religious moral crusade to save the world.

- Benjamin Franklin

In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot...
- Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
- Thomas Jefferson

Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual
- Thomas Jefferson

Liberty has never come from government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance.
- Woodrow Wilson
