As the nation waits with bated breath on the results of the 2020 election, former-Styx leader Dennis DeYoung took to his Facebook page to post a good natured message to friends and fans.

DeYoung's tongue-in-cheek message reads:

Post Election thoughts without knowing the outcome. It’s irrelevant.

Hey kids After much investigation I have concluded the obvious regarding voters. Something I always knew but was unable to articulate. This applies to all politicians of every political party. And humans in general.

PEOPLE NEVER MIND BEING LIED TO AS LONG AS THEY LIKE THE LIE.

PEOPLE NEVER MIND BEING LIED TO AS LONG AS THEY LIKE THE LIE.

True in politics, true in all our human interaction. EXAMPLE

If I call you up every single morning and tell you sincerely and convincingly that your are the most talented, brilliant, beautiful (handsome) and decent person I have ever known I doubt you would object. Why would you? Unless you’re a masochist. That’s why it’s so hard to get out the Masochist vote in any election.

This is what politicians do with their promises and policies. Left, right, center. Always have. Roman Emperor Bicus Dyckus wrote an extensive treatise on this way back in the B.C. (Sorry Pythons). And we fall for it every time. I have been perplexed at times as to why seemingly reasonable folks would believe obvious lies. . . but not anymore.

Remember this is not about either candidate or party they are all guilty. Their lies are calculated to their constituency. That only leaves we the people to do our homework and decide who’s more full of poop. It won’t be easy, we’re suckers for illusions and flattery. And they are seasoned experts in this field.

In conclusions I’d like to sincerely thank all of you who come here to Facebook and have supported me in my career for nearly 50 years. You are unquestionably the smartest, most beautiful (and handsome) dedicated, discerning, honest, generous, gracious and remarkable fans of any in the world, galaxy, Universe which includes parallel ones in the entire history of everything, even before history.

Cheers and grazie Mille your idol the humble genius… me.

P.s. Please stop buying any music but mine.

When we last caught up with Dennis DeYoungm he was promoting his excellent new solo set titled, 26 East, Vol. 1, and he took time out to send out a heartfelt personal message: ["I wish everybody right now, everywhere, y'know, health first, because nothing else matters after that. And after that, I wish them that this thing — this bomb — will not affect them economically in a disastrous way. Y'know, most people are not going to be sick. They're not gonna be touched by this — but (they will by) the economic bomb that it's creating. It's a shame. But, this is the universe, apparently, we've chosen to live in."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC. . . to live in)
