Taylor is worth over 300 million , I don't think they're any fear in her needing to do gigs at MF or VFW ever. SMH!


Posted 4:59 pm, 10/10/2018

She better be careful, just may be enlisting at Merle Fest or VFW next year for a gig...

Ask yourself will I follow 1 Opinion. Find TRUTH. People are reacting on emotions not on logic.
Yes I believe in The Father The Words.


Posted 4:26 pm, 10/10/2018

Yes and it could be that someone happened to remind people it was the last day.


Posted 4:17 pm, 10/10/2018

"I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country," she continued. "I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent."

"I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love,"

Swift concluded her post by writing, "So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!"

In the 24 hours following Swift's post, there were 65,000 registrations, according to Vote.org's director of communications, Kamari Guthrie.

"We are up to 65,000 registrations in a single 24-hour period since T. Swift's post," Guthrie told BuzzFeed. "Vote.org saw [Tennessee] registrations spike specifically since Taylor's post."

An official statement from Vote.org, released on Tuesday, reads, "Since Taylor Swift's well publicized Instagram post on Sunday night, where she urged her 112M fans to register and vote, Vote.org has found a massive spike of voters registering nationwide. While there are several factors contributing this, a large majority of new registrations since Taylor's post on Sunday have been from people between 18-29 years old -- about 102,000 out of the 240,000 total new registrations in less than 48 hours."
