    He actually said this on a song I did with him, and it's profound in many ways and he told me he had a lot of down-time in Federal Prison to think about this.

    This statement will probably favor well with Right leaning members, and left-leaning members may not like it all that much but I have to say, I 100% agree with it and we should talk about it. It will be fun/interesting.

    So, in a song, he was talking about picking himself up and what he said was "Not to have a choice, is a choice."

    How's that ring with you?

    That's not what he was referring to (Voting). He was referring to letting your circumstances get the better of you - - - - as being a choice.

    I like it. It's a corollary to "not to take a choice is a choice', IMO.

    Choosing to not have a choice doesn't make sense in my brain.


    Maybe too many beers in college are to blame, but someone of greater intellect help me out.

    It's sort of a metaphor which means: that usually when people settle @ saying "but I didn't have any other choice" - - - - -

    it was a choice to settle at that, because there's always another way.
