He enjoys combining his political viewpoint with his music, here is a comment from a 2005 concert...

Quote

"The people who start wars are for the most part old guys with a lot of money," Earle said. "And they aren't going. More to the point, their kids aren't going."

Sings a tribute to traitor John Walker

Quote

Artist/Band: Earle Steve
Lyrics for Song: John Walker's Blues
Lyrics for Album: Jerusalem

I'm just an American boy raised on MTV
And I've seen all those kids in the soda pop ads
But none of 'em looked like me
So I started lookin' around for a light out of the dim
And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word
Of Mohammed, peace be upon him

chorus:
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
There is no God but God

If my daddy could see me now chains around my feet
He don't understand that sometimes a man
Has got to fight for what he believes
And I believe God is great, all praise due to him
And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky
Just like Jesus, peace be upon him

chorus

We came to fight the Jihad and our hearts were pure and strong
As death filled the air, we all offered up prayers
And prepared for our martyrdom
But Allah had some other plan, some secret not revealed
Now they're draggin' me back with my head in a sack
To the land of the infidel

A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah

Putting Down American Conservatives in a Song

Quote

Artist/Band: Earle Steve
Lyrics for Song: Amerika v. 6.0 (The Best We Can Do)
Lyrics for Album: Jerusalem

Look at ya
Yeah, take a look in the mirror now tell me what you see
Another satisfied customer in the front of the line for the American dream
I remember when we was both out on the boulevard
Talkin' revolution and singin' the blues
Nowadays it's letters to the editor and cheatin' on our taxes
Is the best that we can do
Come on

Look around
There's doctors down on Wall Street
Sharpenin' their scalpels and tryin' to cut a deal
Meanwhile, back at the hospital
We got accountants playin' God and countin' out the pills
Yeah, I know, that sucks that your HMO
Ain't doin' what you thought it would do
But everybody's gotta die sometime and we can't save everybody
It's the best that we can do

Four score and a hundred and fifty years ago
Our forefathers made us equal as long as we can pay
Yeah, well maybe that wasn't exactly what they was thinkin'
Version six-point-oh of the American way
But hey we can just build a great wall around the country club
To keep the riff-raff out until the slump is through
Yeah, I realize that ain't exactly democratic, but it's either them or us and
And it's the best we can do

Yeah, passionely conservative
It's the best we can do

Conservatively passionate
It's the best we can do

Meanwhile, still thinkin'
Hey, let's wage a war on drugs
It's the best we can do
Well, I don't know about you, but I kinda dig this global warming thing...

He thinks Canada could control the world (because of their water)

Quote

"People think this war is about oil," Earle says of Gulf War II, "and that's incredibly naive. It's about world domination; oil happens to be the commodity that's the most valuable right now, but it's almost gone. And Canada has every reason to be afraid of the United States, or anyone else that comes along after us. We're reaching critical mass so fast we may not even last long enough to be a threat to Canada, but there's gonna come a point in the not-too-distant future -- not in our lives, but possibly our children's lives and definitely our grandchildren's lives -- when it's gonna be about water. And Canada is sitting on most of the water supply in this hemisphere.

"Canada could, in the right science-fiction novel, dominate the world, because they control all the water. But more than likely they'll sit around and play patty cake with the United States until the U.S. ends up with all the water. I know that sounds nuts, but that's what it's all about. And when it comes to the United States tromping all over the world, Canada has stood up to a certain extent, but I don't see a Trudeau. I don't see anyone who's gonna say 'absolutely no.' "
