I like the track. It's very catchy, and much more informed than most political music. I also love that your rhymed GATT with Glass-Stiegel act. Classic.
I can kind of hear where rvolt is coming from. The song is good but the mix just isn't there yet somehow. Maybe you can experiment with it. To me it felt a bit muffled, like the highs were squashed. It could be a simple matter of the mix being over-compressed. Try a version without the Ozone and the SSL compressor and see if it sounds clearer and more alive (of course it will be quieter, but turn it up so you can do an apples-to-apples comparison to the soundcloud mix).
It could also be an eq issue on the vocals, not sure. I would suggest trying to highpass filter the lows out of your vocals using the EQ on the SSL. That might go a long way to clearing it up.
I like the song though, don't get me wrong! Just trying to give some suggestions on the mix.
