This really irritates me …
"THIS ELECTION IS CRITICAL
Democracy in the United States is at risk, and only we can save it. We are alarmed by the actions of our leaders to undermine the legitimacy of this election. Our president and his supporters have relentlessly attacked our free press, spread misinformation and unfounded fears about mail-in ballots, and have even gone so far as to question whether they will accept the results of the upcoming election.
Your influence counts too! If you aren’t eligible to vote in the US, please share this with anyone you know who can.
Soundtoys firmly believes in protecting civil rights and the environment. Lately, we have watched as a reckless administration has ignored the advice of scientists and public health professionals in the midst of a pandemic, torn up environmental regulations and treaties, and instigated division and fear of immigrants, minorities, and people of color.
We must address the major problems of our time: systemic racism, climate change, access to health care and education, and income inequality. To achieve this we need a change of leadership – at all levels of government.
We are voting for change. We urge you to register and vote too. That’s why we’ve partnered with BallotReady.org to provide simple solutions and clear information to help you register, know your options, and prepare to vote.
I understand this is a “US thing”, but why the Hell does one of my favorite plugin providers feel the need to bring politics into it’s business practices? This one really rubbed me the wrong way. I just don’t get it.
I’m not inviting judgement either way about the current state of US affairs. I don’t want this to turn into a political topic. I just want others’ thoughts / opinions about whether it is a plugin manufacturer’s “duty” to influence me politically. Personally, I think not.
I will never purchase another Soundtoys product, as much as I love them, if I ever receive another politically based email.
